Katherine A. Crowley-Foster, 73, of Waretown passed away on June 6, 2018.
She spent her career as a geriatric service administrator for the Meridian Health Care system and was a passionate advocate for senior citizens. She was proud to have established the largest ElderMed program in the nation, with more than 35,000 members. Her work included providing a wide range of speakers, health information and services to senior citizens throughout Ocean County. Among her many accomplishments was also serving at the request of Congressman Christopher Smith as a state representative on the National Conference on Aging in Washington, D.C.
She was a loving wife, a loyal friend to many and a devoted “Mom-Mom” to her grandchildren, who were the lights of her life. Her slightly mischievous sense of humor, her profound love for family and her strong faith will live on in all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Surviving are her beloved husband of 26 years, Vincent Foster; three loving children and their spouses, Christopher and Allison Erwin, Karen and Kevin Linico, Michael and Myrna Erwin; six cherished grandchildren, Katherine, Jack, Michael, Megan, Colin and Zion; a brother, Joseph Crowley; two sisters, Anne Marie Costello and Susan Mastellone.
