Mary Patricia Foster (nee O’Shea)
Entered into Eternal Life on Sunday, July 10, 2022. Age 95. Preceded in death by her husband James Foster in 2003 and husband William E. Kreuser in 1972. Cherished mother of Sheila (Gregg) Jozwik, Susan (the late Michael) O’Shea and William P. (Kathy) Kreuser. Beloved grandma of William A. Kreuser (Shelby Ross), William C. (Wendy) Kreuser, Erin (Dan) Schuder, Maura Jozwik and John Kreuser. Great-grandma of Sam. Survived by her loving sisters Eileen (the late Wayne) Kenke and Peggy (Ed) Regan, as well as many nieces, nephews, other family members and a multitude of friends.
Mary was a strong and independent woman whose heart was full of compassion and love. She was the matriarch of the extended O’Shea clan and was very proud of her Irish heritage. Mary was mentally sharp until the very end, keeping up on world events and politics. She traveled to Africa, South America and Europe, including many trips to Ireland. Mary made friends wherever she went. She was an outgoing, happy person who always looked out for the underdog.
The family would like to thank the devoted caregivers at Heritage Deer Creek during her final days.
