Teddy P. Foster passed away Wednesday evening peacefully as she slept. Teddy was born in Green River, Wyoming April 8, 1927, to Dan and Erini Pulos, later residing in Pocatello, Idaho, where she graduated from the local public school system as well as the Greek Orthodox School. In 1943, she met and married James E. Foster an Airman from Florida that was stationed at the 8th Army Air Corp Base nearby, a marriage that lasted 68 years before his death in 2011. Eventually the family moved to Florida in the early 60's where Teddy secured employment with the Citizens and People's Bank as a research clerk. After 30 years of service with the bank, and retirement, she and her husband Jim moved to the Lake City area to be closer to their son. Teddy being an active person, again returned to the work force with Publix Bakeries spending the next 20 years enjoying her work and all the people that she came in contact with. At the age of 80 Teddy again retired to fully enjoy her time with her family and friends. Teddy was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, three children James Daniel, Robert Anthony and Erini Kay. Siblings that preceded Teddy are brothers Anthony Pulos, Frank Pulos and John Pulos; sisters Mary Hall and Tula Doan, Georgia Bannister, and one grandson John David Foster.
