Born in Hampton ,NS she was the daughter of the late Charlie and Bertha (Balcomb) Foster of Hampton. Sadly, Bonnie lost her battle with cancer and went home to be with her Lord. As we are all saddened by her passing and we do mourn our loss, we can’t help but be strengthened by her courage in facing death. She was actually singing hymns as she waited for her Saviour. A time of reflection for sure! Bonnie was predeceased by her husband Robert “Bobby’ Young , Hampton, her parents Charlie and Bertha Foster, brothers: Delbert, Leroy and Burpee and her sister Alice.
