Brunswick- Randy J. Foster, 70, a longtime resident of Brunswick, died peacefully Sunday, September 17, 2023, in the comfort of her home surrounded by her devoted family following a long illness.
Born in Ticonderoga, NY, Randy was the daughter of the late Randall and Hazel (Kelley) Parrott and, for over 38 years, the loving and adored wife of Randy L. Foster of Brunswick, who survives. Mr. and Mrs. Foster (Randy and Randy) were married on June 15, 1985.
Randy was a graduate of Crown Point High School.

Randy was a communicant of St. Henry’s Church in Averill Park and one of the largest supporters of sports at Brittonkill Central School.
Randy always had a smile on her face, a gentle heart, and a caring, kind, upbeat spirit that she was willing to share with everyone. She was an avid Boston Red Sox fan, loved to grow flowers in her gardens at home, and above all else loved her family, especially her grand and great-grandchildren.
