Blanche Doris Foust of N Charleston, SC, entered into eternal rest Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018. She was 89. The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19 at Stuhr's Northwoods Chapel, 2180 Greenridge Road, N Charleston. Friends and loved ones are invited to attend her funeral service at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20 at Stuhr's Northwoods Chapel. Interment to follow at Carolina Memorial Gardens, N Charleston.

Doris was born March 1929 in South Connellsville, PA. She was the daughter of the late Fred and Adelia Soisson of South Connellsville. In her early years, Doris worked at J.G. McCrory's five and dime store and Anchor Hocking and was a 70 YEAR member of Albright United Methodist Church, the YMCA and Ladies Auxiliary of the South Connellsville Fire Department.

In April 1953, Doris married John "Bud" Foust Jr. She was a loving military wife, mother, homemaker and community volunteer. During their 25 years with the U.S. Air Force, the military stationed the family in San Antonio, TX; Charleston AFB, SC, Alexandria, VA (retired) and returned to N Charleston to live.

Dedicated to her community, Doris was a model neighbor and friend, touching many lives through her compassion for others and her tireless volunteering at numerous Lowcountry churches and organizations. Joint Base Charleston Air Force Base Chapel, Old Fort Baptist Church Young at Heart Group, Clemson Homemakers Club, Garrett Homemakers and Community Group, Covington Hills Civic Club, and the Arlington Ladies (U.S. Army) of Fort Myers, VA all benefited from her heartfelt efforts. She proudly served as an usher and guide for more than 30 years in the Charleston community, volunteering at the Dock Street Theatre, Footlight Players, Garden Theatre, Gaillard Municipal Auditorium, Sottile Theater, Charleston Guerrilla Theatre, Piccolo Spoleto and the N Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center. She was a fan of South Carolina Stingrays hockey and a member of the Stingrays Booster Club. In July 1998, she was honored as Volunteer of the Year by the City of Charleston's Office of Cultural Affairs and Charleston Stage. Doris enjoyed creating and sharing crafts, flower gardening, attending hockey games and time spent with family and friends.

She is survived by two sons, Robert Foust of N Charleston and John F. Foust (Dawn) of Walterboro; sister, Natalie Moon (Ron) of Barberton, Ohio; sister-in-law's Zelda Cossel and Vella Woodellof Connellsville, PA; granddaughters, Olivia Foust Beyers (Terry), Caroline Foust Packard (Aaron) and Robin Nettles (Andy); grandsons, Simon Parsano, Josh Braswell and Greg Bowman; 6 great-grand kids with another due April; several cousins, nieces and nephews in OH and PA; former daughter-in-law's Cindy and Vickie; well as two loving dogs, Little Puck and Buttons. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by 3 infant brothers, her sister, Sarah "Red" Soisson, and her husband, "Bud". The family would like to thank all the caregivers for their loving care-Val and her husband Tom, Dee, Jondelle, Arlene and Darlene.
