Luella Mildred Foster
October 26, 1923 - January 11, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Luella Mildred Foster on Thursday, January 11, 2018, at Biggar Health Centre Long Term Care, Biggar, Sask. at the age of 94 years.  
Luella Mildred Foster, the only daughter of Walter Raynor and Jessie May Elmore was born in Fleming, Sask. on October 26, 1923.  She received her elementary and high school education in Fleming.  To further her education she attended Regina Normal School, and the Universities of Regina, Saskatoon, and Victoria where she received her degree in Education.  Her teaching career began in rural schools near Esterhazy and Regina, then to Rocanville and Assiniboia before finally settling in Biggar, Sask.  She taught Grade 1 until she retired in 1977.
Luella and Bill Foster were married on August 8, 1951 at Regina Beach, Sask. and together they raised three children.  They spent their winters in Mesa, Arizona following their retirements in 1977.  Together they organized and taught Pattern Dancing. After Bill’s death in 2001, Luella continued to spend her winters in Mesa teaching dance until the age of 90.  She also loved going to the cabin and spending her summers at Regina Beach.  Her hobbies included crafts, knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, reading, and what she will always be remembered for, her dancing. While in Mesa she met Willie McDermott who would become her companion during the last years of her life.
Luella was predeceased by her husband Bill in 2001, her father Walter Elmore in 1973, her mother Jessie Elmore in 1976, and her brother Raynor Elmore in 1987. 
She leaves to mourn her daughter, Marcia Hunter and grandsons Danny (Tara) Hunter, Brian (Tanis) Hunter, and Andrew Hunter; her daughter, Kathy (Dale) Kolberg and grandchildren Stephen Kolberg, Heather (Tyler) Callicott, and Jason (Ashley) Kolberg; her son, Warren (Bev) Foster and granddaughters Sarah (Cam) Stempfle, Jamie Foster and Erin Foster.  She also leaves to mourn seven great-grandchildren, True and Cash Hunter, Jordy Hunter, Reese and Claire Callicott,  Hunter and Bennett Stempfle.

May 14, 1937 – January 13, 2018
Josephine Emma Kerr, aged 80, died peacefully on January 13, 2018 at the home of her son Brian in Merida, Mexico, while on vacation there with her husband, Jim and her daughter Debbie. Josie was born May 14, 1937 in Crystal Springs, Manitoba, the daughter of Arthur and Zalba St. Jean.
At an early age, she and her family moved to the community of Biggar, where she would spend the rest of her life. There was never a thought of making anyplace else her home, except for some winter escapes to Green Valley, Arizona in her later years.
Josie was proud to be a housewife and mother to her six children. She would time the fresh bread and buns to be coming out of the oven just about the time the school bus arrived to drop the kids off, and had the butter and honey ready. Chocolate cake didn’t get a chance to be iced before it was devoured. A proud farm wife, Josie dedicated her life to her family and her community, volunteering for nearly everything that came along. She was active in the Royal Purple for many years, and accompanied Jim in his activities with the Elks Lodge, visiting nearly every community in Saskatchewan, and later to national events. Curlers will remember her well, for the years she spent preparing food and drinks there. In her later years, she enjoyed her coffee breaks downtown, solving world problems. Josie was known around the community for her fashion sense, always well-groomed and color-coordinated. She loved to shop, and enjoyed the fellowship of worship at her church.
In 1956, Josephine married the love of her life, Jim, and they began their family, eventually having four sons and two daughters. Later, they would add ten grandchildren to the mix.
Josie was a member of Associated Gospel Church, the Royal Purple, Square Dancing and an active volunteer.
She is survived by her husband, Jim, sons, Wayne (Marlene) and daughter Jacquelyn; Debbie (Charles) and sons Jeremy and Travis; Brian (Marla) and son Manuel and daughter Lilian Lorena; Darryl (Rosanne) and daughters Hope, Victoria and Calista; Tanya (Bob) and sons, Dylan and Hunter; and Kevin (Erica); sisters, Evelyn (Ron), Barbara (Doug); and brother, Louis, and untold numbers of nieces and nephews.
There will be a service at the Biggar Associated Gospel Church on 8th Street and Quebec Avenue, THURSDAY, JANUARY 25 at 11 a.m. Private graveside service for immediate family members at the Biggar Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be sent in her name to Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Diabetes Association. Lunch will be served at the church following the services.
