Obituary of Anthula Foster
Peacefully passed away surrounded by family on Friday June 28, 2019 in Newmarket in her 99th year. Loving mother of Dorothy (Lawrie), Don (Karen), Helen (Bruce), Gill (Teresa). Cherished grandmother of Debbie (Sarah), Mark (Kelly), Scott (Arlene), Kerri (Jeff), Brittany, Robert, and Ben. Great grandmother of Kayla (Geoff), Zachary (Emma), Aiden, Skylar, and Mitchell. Predeceased by adored brothers and sisters Bill Foster, Chris Foster, Vickie Givelas, Santa Filipu.
Anthula was born in Florina Greece. When her older brothers left the village and sailed to Canada to find a new future, she and her two sisters grew up alongside her brother Bill’s two children - Sulla, and John who was a lifelong friend. When ready, all but Santa came to Canada to raise their children. Family ties stay strong, a trait she and her siblings passed along to their children, and those bonds are sure to be carried on throughout the generations.
