Virginia I. Faller Foster, age 88, said her loving goodbyes surrounded by her family on May 29th 2016 at Brendan House, Kalispell, MT. Virginia was the youngest child of five girls born to Joseph and Anna Marie Shields Faller on Feb. 22 1928 in their family home at 700 E Glendale, Dillon, MT. She was educated in Dillon Schools and spent two years at Montana State Normal College as an art student. Her early working years were spent working for the Cottom family on the 7L Ranch and as her father’s office assistant at the Dillon Credit Bureau. United in marriage to Rodney Churchill Foster II in Dillon, the love of her life on 11/11/1950. She began her first year of married life as a navy wife living in Norfolk West, Virginia. Upon Rod’s Naval discharge, Rod attended the Montana School of Mines and Virginia and Rod settled in Butte, Mt. with the first child born the same day as the start of college for Rod. By the time of graduation, the young couple now was a family of 5. Rod accepted a position with Ingersoll Rand and while training out of the area, Virginia stayed in Dillon long enough to welcome their 4th child. With a car of four children the family settled in Salt Lake City where their 5th child was born. With a promotion in 1960 the family of seven moved to Spokane, Washington, until Rod’s employment changed. As always the consummate stay at home mother, her husband and children lacked nothing. She taught us by her exemplary example of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. And in 1963 Virginia faithfully moved with her family to Wallace, Idaho, where Rod was employed as the manager of Coeur d’Alene Hardware and Foundry until 1972 when he became co-founder of F & H Mine Supply. After Rod’s untimely death five months later, in May of 1972 she re-entered the work force. She found employment as the office manager for Gardner-Denver. When Gardner-Denver closed their business in Wallace, Virginia returned to Dillon and provided companionship and care to her mother until her mother’s death in 1998. She lived in Dillon until 2014 when pain, hip surgery and mobility limitations forced her to leave the beloved Glendale home where she was born. After multiple moves, she settled into life at Brendan House, in Kalispell, Montana, close to her son Rod. Virginia is survived by her children, Rodney C Foster III (Karen), Jennifer Fausett-Foster (Lovon), Joseph W. Foster (Janie Morales), Andrea Foster Kveder; grandchildren Christy Riggs, Brian Voltolini, Rodney Foster IV, Karen Russell, Derik Fausett, Janelle Skaw, Andrew Foster, Katy Foster, Melissa Kveder, Emily Kveder, Daryl Kveder, Grant Kveder and 15 great grandchildren.
