Obituary of Alberta Marie Foster

Foster, Alberta Marie – 81, formerly of Hampton, passed away October 21, 2020 in the Annapolis Royal Nursing Home. Born February 9, 1939, in Parker’s Cove she was the daughter of the late Clifford and Myrtle Sarty. Mom worked at a variety of part time jobs over the years, but her full time occupation was homemaker, to which she lovingly committed herself. She was also active in her community of Hampton, taking part in the lighthouse, cemetery and community hall functions and committees. She was always gladly willing to help others, and her kindnesses are well remembered. She was much loved and will also be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her. Alberta is survived by her daughters, Debora “Debbie” Foster (Mark Proctor), Maryland, USA; Carol Foster, Granville Centre; grandson, Michael Proctor (son of Debora Foster and her husband Mark Proctor); siblings, Gerald “Buddy”, Louis “Buster”, Reginald and Eileen. Predeceased by her husband, William “Bill” Foster; siblings, Wayne, Raymond and Lillian. Cremation has taken place, and a private family service will be held at a later date in the Hampton Cemetery. Donation in Alberta’s memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia. From her daughters, Debbie and Carol: We could not have asked for, or even imagined, a better mother. Her love and support showed in everything she did for us, giving of herself freely and asking nothing in return. She was always there for us when we needed her, helping us as we stumbled down the bumpy road of life. "Mom, you helped in so many ways to make us who we are today, and there are never enough words to express our love and gratitude for this and for so many, many other things. Your earthly presence in our lives is missed dearly, but you are ever in our hearts and in our thoughts. We love you mom." From her son-in-law, Mark Proctor: Alberta was a loving and kind mother, grandmother, and mother-in-law. She was always there and willing to assist in any way she could, always spoke very kindly, and was so very supportive. During the summers we visited, she was always there to do what she could, and we will always remember her loving and kind nature...and those lobster dinners and late night lobster treats. We will remember our tours of the local area followed by stops at McDonald's. She was a very special lady indeed, and she will be enormously missed by all, especially her loving family. From her grandson, Michael Proctor: My grandmother was a very kind woman. Although she didn't talk a lot, she exuded kindness and love to all those around her. My parents and I would always see her every other year when we drove from the States up to Nova Scotia. We would have fun visiting her small house in the middle of nowhere and eating her home-made meals. I loved my grandmother, and I know that she is in heaven.
