"Yesterday evening about 6 o'clock the angel of death visited the home of our esteemed townsman, C. D. Foster, Esq., and removed his youngest daughter, Lily, a little girl only 9 years of age.

She fell a victim to that dire disease, diphtheria, after a brief sickness. The little one, so suddenly called away in the very midst of the bright days of childhood, had won her way deep into the hearts of all who knew her. She was of a joyous and kindly disposition, and had given ample evidence of the possession of still nobler qualities which would have made her after life one of great promise.

In their deep affliction the sorrowing parents have the sympathy of every one. Their grief, however, is one that cannot soon be overcome, but must be left to the gentle hand of all-healing time to assuage."

(The Wilkes-Barre Record, W-B, PA: 30 Jun 1883)

She was originally buried in the Huntsville Cemetery, Huntsville, PA, but removed to the Hollenback Cemetery when the Foster mausoleum was built.
