Betty Lou Foster was born on February 26, 1967 to Randolph and Mary McCray Foster in
Helena, Arkansas. At an early age, Betty devoted her life to Christ and accepted Jesus as her
Lord and Saviour. Betty made her heavenly transition on Sunday, February 21, 2021. For most
of her church life, Betty served under the leadership of the late Dr. Rev. L.C. Tyler and Rev.
L.C. Tyler II at Mt. Olive M.B. Church and Union Grove M.B. Church. Betty lived a fruitful
life and served as a beacon of light around all of those she encountered. She always carried a
smile and practiced the Golden Rule: “Treated others how she wanted to be treated!” Betty was
a passionate cook and always shared her love for cooking with many others. Betty had an equal
love for fashion and cosmetology and often exhibited this through her style and poise. She also
served as a long-term home health aide for family and friends.
Visitation will be Tuesday March 2, 2021 from 12:00 PM-5:00 PM at Royal Funeral Home. The graveside service will be Wednesday March 3, 2021, 12:00 PM at Heavenly Rest Cemetery. Rev. L.C. Tyler II, officiating.
Betty was preceded in death by Randolph Foster (Father), Mary McCray-Foster (Mother),
Brenda McCray (Sister) and Joshua Lee Foster, Sr. (Son). Betty leaves to cherish in her beloved
memory: two sons (Minister Jonathan Lee Foster & Jermiah Lee Foster); one daughter
(Wilnessa Ann Foster); one daughter-in-law (Cornita Hamer-Foster); five grandchildren (Joshua
Lee Foster, Jr., Laila Ameree Foster, Ava Marie Foster, Nathan Khi Foster & Isaiah Eugene Foster);
three sisters (Mary McCray (Sam) Silas, Jacqueline (Willie) Campbell & Georgia Campbell);
one brother (Reverend Jeffery (Teresa) Foster); a special friend (Henry James Ladd); and a
host of nieces and nephews. Betty “Mama Lou” Foster will be truly missed by many but her
legacy will live on through her loved ones!
