BENTON--Brenda Jane Foster (Holt), 68, of Benton, was born November 5, 1948, in Waterville Maine to her very loving parents, Sumner and Josie Holt who continued to spoil her until their deaths in 2000 and 2015. \r\n\r\nBrenda died far too soon on Sunday, May 28, 2017, from complications related to cancer, leaving behind her long time love of her life, Robert (Bobby) Bergeron, their kitty Sambo, her sons Robin Foster and his wife Jocelyn Young, Eric Foster and his wife Lynda and her daughter Angie Foster, as well as three grandchildren she adored, Zachary, Taylor and Austin Foster.\r\n\r\nBrenda was extremely proud of her Dad's military service and his participation in World War II in the South Pacific where he was injured by gunfire. She was deeply patriotic and rarely seen without her American Flag pin on her shirt. \r\n\r\nBrenda worked at Klearview Manor in Fairfield for nearly 40 years in the laundry before recently retiring. She worked tirelessly with great pride to ensure all the residents looked their best. She took great care of their clothes and their belongings. No stain was safe from Brenda. Everyone knew when Brenda was on lunch break when the smell of her burnt toast she loved so much permeated Klearview's hallways. She made many friends of her coworkers, residents and their families. \r\n\r\nBrenda loved reading, keeping track of the weather, thunderstorms, and tending her beautiful flower gardens. She loved every chance she could get to go to the beach, ocean, mountains, or up north. She enjoyed jamming to her favorite band U2, and shared two wonderful trips with her daughter to see U2 perform live. \r\n\r\nShe got great pleasure in the wild songbirds, hummingbirds, crows, squirrels, deer, woodchucks and raccoon families who frequented her well stocked feeders for years. She loved all her kitties that came in and out of her life. \r\n\r\nShe held close to her heart her very special friends, Rose, Sheila and Lori and their fun day trips. She especially enjoyed her many adventures through the years all over Maine and beyond with her daughter Angie. \r\n\r\nBecause Brenda loved animals so much, she frequently donated to the Waterville Humane Society. In lieu of flowers, please send a check in her name to the Humane Society Waterville Area, 100 Webb Road, Waterville, Maine 04901.\r\n\r\nA graveside service will be announced at a later date.
