Obituary

READFIELD, MAINE
Brenda Jean (Smith) Foster - age 45 passed away peacefully on February 25, 2020 at MaineGeneral Glenridge Comfort Care facility after a courageous 5 year fight with breast cancer. She was born in Lewiston, ME on April 15, 1974 to Barbara (VanWart) Smith and William Smith.
She spent her younger years in Readfield and was educated in the Maranacook school district. Starting at Readfield Elementary where she made many lifelong friends. She went on to continue at Maranacook Middle and High school where she graduated in 1992. After High school she was accepted to Bryant University in Rhode Island where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business accounting in 1996, with Honors. Right out of college she started working with Digital Equipment Corp. in their financial development program. Over the 25 years of employment she stayed with the company through changes to Compaq, Hewlett Packard, and finally Hewlett Packard Enterprise working in finance and operations.
Brenda married her high school sweetheart, Jason Foster, on November 22, 1997 and together they lived in Marlborough, MA for 13 years where they bought a house and started their family. They decided to move their family back home to Maine in 2009 and returned to Readfield where they bought and renovated the home she grew up in. Brenda enjoyed all Maine has to offer as an avid hiker, gardener and harvester of every in season fruit available at the local garden or orchard. She enjoyed cheering on her boys as they played hockey, lacrosse or brought home a new creation from the forge.
Brenda was predeceased by her mother Barbara who lived with her for many years in Readfield and her father in Florida.
Brenda is survived by her husband Jason N Foster and her two sons, whom she cared for with all her heart, Nathan D and Cameron J, all of Readfield. Also, her brothers George Smith of Nobleboro, ME and Harold Smith of Monmouth, ME. Her mother in-law Doris Brown of Readfield. Her father in-law Dan Foster and his wife Karen of New Hampshire.
Family and friends may visit from 9:00 to 11:00 on March 9th, 2020 at Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant St., Augusta ME where a memorial service will be held at 11:00. Burial will be at a later date in the Readfield Corner Cemetery, Church Rd. Readfield.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to MaineGeneral Health to benefit the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care where she received her cancer treatment or Maine General Hospice Care.
Both took such great care of Brenda all through her cancer journey and we hope her memory will inspire others to keep fighting this horrible disease.

As a teacher at the Cottage Children's Center in Marlboro, Ma I can honestly say Brenda and Jason were so kind and thoughtful. Brenda was a pleasure to chat with each day. Her warm smile, happy nature and wonderful sense of humor was always enjoyed. Brenda would light up the room with great pride when she spoke of Nate and Cam. My husband Gene, had the pleasure of meeting Brenda and Jason as well. We both are saddened and send our thoughts and prayers.

I will always remember the first time I met Brenda in class freshman year at Bryant. Little did I know at that moment that we would become fast friends for the next 28 years. I couldn't have asked for anything more in a best friend. Brenda always listened and would provide just the right advice. Always calm, never dramatic. You will always be in my fondest memories and always by my side.

My deepest sympathies to Jason, Nate and Cam. Jim, Cassidy, Jimmy and I will always be here.

Love,
Jeannette

I will remember Brenda walking into the field with her berry bucket tied around her neck with the boys and Jason following behind, and alway with a smile and a kind greeting. She enjoyed picking berries and knew she had to pick double as the boys were more interested in eating than picking for the week ahead. Even though her illness Brenda continued her annual ritual with her family. Brenda will be surely missed by all.

My thoughts and prayers to Jason, the boys and her family.
