"Alice Foster dies at age of 78
"Alice Phillips Foster, 78, a resident of Alfred for 38 years, died of cancer Saturday at the Mountain View Rest Home on Hartsville Hill. Mrs. Foster was active in church and community affairs, having been president of the Alfred Garden Club and of the Union University Church Women's Guild. She was a member of the Alfred Historical Society.

"She served as Chairman of the Allegany County Home Extension Board and as local Chairman of the Salvation Army. She was an ardent naturalist and a longtime member of the Allegany County Bird Club. She assisted her late husband, Eddy Elwood Foster, in establishing a 25-acre lake near Alfred and in the creation of the Foster Lake Club which still enjoys the use of the lake and its surroundings.

"Mrs. Foster was born near Naples in the Finger Lakes Region, was graduated from Franklin Academy in Prattsburg, and taught in a one-room school for several years in the Prattsburg area. She married Eddy Foster, also of the Prattsburg area, while both of them were attending Cornell University where she majored in Home Economics.

"The Fosters resided in Canton, N.Y., then on Long Island, and again in Prattsburg before finally settling in Alfred in 1941 when Eddy joined the faculty of the New York State Agricultural and Technical Institute there.

"She is survived by a sister, Margelia Foster of Bath, N.Y., a daughter, Cynthia Clements of Mt. Prospect, IL, a son, Phillips Foster of College Park, MD, and six grandchildren.

"A memorial service will be held at 4:30 p.m., Saturday, June 14 at the Alfred Seventh Day Baptist Church with the Rev. Albert N. Rogers officiating. Memorial gifts
may be made to the Union University Church or to the Alfred United Methodist Church."
