Peggy Foyster was a devoted wife, loving mother and doting grandmother. She was married to her husband and best friend, Ray for 56 years and lovingly cared for her two boys, Michael and Brian. She regularly babysat for her grandson Dylan and looked forward to having dinner on Sundays with her husband, son Brian, daughter-in-law Traci and her grandson Dylan.
When she wasn’t with her family, Peggy loved knitting baby blankets, “Sewing for the Nations” with her First Baptist Hendersonville friends, cooking, baking and reading.
Peggy wanted people to know how happy her life as a mother, wife and grandmother made her feel. She described being totally fulfilled by her relationships with her family and said her career came second. Another source of great fulfillment was working with the special kids on Sundays. Peggy’s grandson Dylan was born 14 weeks premature. Subsequently, Dylan has special needs and is profoundly deaf. Dylan inspired Peggy to learn sign language, and both she and Ray, to volunteer their time with the special kids class at church. Peggy felt that although each child faces their own unique challenges, each child has their own special qualities, which she admired. Despite their individual challenges, she felt you could just look into their eyes and see the empathy and love they have to share. She loved those kids with all her heart and soul.

    I am sorry to hear of your loss. One of the most difficult things we have to deal with is the death of a loved one. The Bible promise; “God is close to the brokenhearted.” It also says: “Throw your burden on God and he will sustain you.” (Psalm 34:18 and 55;22) I hope this message will offer comfort in your time of sadness.

    Ray and family, I am a member of the Sewing for the Nations group, and through the ministry is where I met Peggy. She enjoyed sewing the pillowcases into dresses for the girls in Africa. She made much more than that, but I always enjoyed seeing what pretty dresses she would make out of a plain, ordinary pillowcase. She always did such beautiful work. There is a void in our sewing ministry without her, but I know all of those in Heaven are rejoicing over her presence there. We will reunite with her very soon, and I don’t doubt that there will be a child from Africa nearby thanking her for her love and devotion to such a worthy cause. Take comfort in Psalms 116:15 and I Corinthians 2:9.

    Ray, it was with sadness when we learned that Peggy had passed away; but we are also rejoicing that Peggy is now with The Lord. She is totally healed and loving every minute. We were in the Sunday School class with you at HGBC before you moved. She was a sweet lady inside and out, and she will be missed. Please know you are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Please give our sincere sympathy to all your family members. May God bless you and give you strength and peace in the days to come. Remember this beautiful hymn: Because he lives I can face tomorrow, Because He lives, all fear is gone, Because I know He holds the future, and Life is worth the Living just because He lives. Peggy knew this. John 14:1-6
