Foust, Margaret

Written by David Green.

Margaret Shirley Foust, 75, of Fayette,  Ohio, died Jan. 17, 2012, at her home, surrounded by her family.

She was born July 7, 1936, in Newbury Berks, England, to the late Reginald and Kitti (Cook) Neithercot.

Margaret lived her early life in Newbury Berks, and after graduating from high school she attended nursing school to become a certified LPN. She moved to Fayette in the mid 1950s, where she later raised her family. She worked for Dr. Nyce’s office in Fayette for several years and was later employed at Fayette Tubular Products.

She is remembered for her tender caring for other people and her enjoyment of sitting outside in the sunshine. She also enjoyed reading, knitting and spending time with her family.

Margaret is survived by her two daughters, Tami Mohler of Coldwater, Ohio, and Laurie Beaverson of Fayette; a sister, Priscilla (and Desmond) Collins of Newbury Berks, U.K.; four grandchildren, Natasha (and Jeremy) Roberson, Andrew Beaverson (and fiancée Jenna Figy), Weslee Mohler (and fiancée Allie Burd), and Micaelin Mohler; and a great-grandson, Bentley Mohler.

A memorial gathering is planned from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29, at Eagle Funeral Home-Barrett Chapel in Fayette.

Memorial donations are suggested to the American Heart Association or the American Diabetes Association.
