Lynne "Brandenburg" Foster
Lynne Brandenburg Foster, age 69, of Brevard, passed away quietly in her sleep on Monday, July 16, 2018.
She was born on April 13, 1949, in Burlington, NC, to the late Jeannette and Frank Brandenburg.
Lynne loved life, family, and friends. Buck describes her as "one of the most worthwhile, caring and loving people I have known. She made those who came into contact with her feel good about themselves and the human condition generally." Hers was a life well-lived, with love, purpose, humor, and a profound sense of service to others.
In Brevard, Lynne enjoyed playing the dulcimer, knitting, weaving, painting, volunteering, and being the best Nana ever. She was assistant manager of Transylvania Farmer’s Market; a volunteer at Transylvania Visitor’s Center, Land of Waterfalls; and a member of Sit & Stitch, a spirited group of crafty friends at Deerlake Village.
Before retiring with Buck to Brevard, NC, she managed Dr. Jim Eaker's dental office for 25 years in Durham, NC, where she enjoyed a rich life of clogging around the state with her much-loved team the Carolina Heartland Cloggers; watching Buck play softball; doing arts and crafts with her many friends; square dancing with Buck; and helping raise Zada, who lovingly called her "Nana."
Survivors include the love of her life, her husband of 48 years, Buck Foster; brother, Robert Brandenburg; nieces, Amy Shelton, Kathy Forde, and Julie Mitchell; nephew, Matt Battle; and grand-niece Zada Forde. She also leaves behind her dog, Presley.
Donations in Lynne's memory can be made to Brevard Animal Hospital, 1985 Asheville Hwy, Brevard, NC 28712, (828) 883-8105. Everyone in her life knows her devotion to her pets and all animals.
