Annie Kimbro Foster, 91, passed away Sunday, February 16, 2020. She was born July 28, 1928 in Reidsville, North Carolina to the late James Thomas and Lucy Manley Kimbro. Ann never met a stranger. She gave so willingly of herself to her family, her friends and the community. She retired in 1992 from Mutual Savings Bank to care for her husband, Matthew W. Foster until his death. She remained on the Mutual Savings Board and became an Emeritus member of the board for BB&T. She also began her volunteer work in earnest as she served on the boards of the Salvation Army, becoming a lifelong member, and was a member of the Annie Penn Hospital Auxiliary Board. She also volunteered in the Day Surgery Department at Annie Penn for more than 20 years, logging over 28,000 hours. She served on numerous other boards: Cone Hospital Institutional Review Board, Nursing Home Board, and Unified Home Health Board. She was a member of the Reidsville Woman’s Club where she served as chaplain. She was a charter member of Faith Christian Church where she taught Sunday School and served as assistant treasurer as long as her health permitted. Ann was the recipient of the WFMY 2 Those Who Care Award in 2004. Over the years she was recognized numerous times by those who knew her, from Reidsville, Rockingham County, the State of North Carolina and Washington, DC. Ann was also preceded in death by her sisters: Beulah Allen, Mildred Sutton, Ellen Talley, Irene Williams and her twin sister, Alma Pettigrew. Surviving are her son, Rick and his wife, Elizabeth: her pride and joy, grandsons; Corey (Amy) Foster and Josh (Christina) Foster: great-grandchildren; Spencer, Cooper, Eva, Katie Mack and Harrison.

Ms.Ann was a such a kind and beautiful soul. She inspired others to serve and share kindness and love. I spent several years with her volunteering at Annie Penn as a junior volunteer. I will always cherish the many memories and wisdom gained during our time spent together.

Our world is a better place because Ann lived in it. She touched so many lives with her prayers and loving kindnesses. She was an amazing financial person who we came to know at Mutual Savings then she remained a friend all the years since, What an awesome Christian lady!

Anne was a beautiful person, inside and out I knew her for many years as we both worked for financial institutions. Then when I had to go to Annie Penn for a procedure she was there to pray for me. Anne was a real child of God and prayer warrior. Later, our dulcimer group went to Brookdale to play for the group and Anne always greeted us so warmly and prayed before we started playing. She helped set up tables for lunch and just was a part of the staff as well as a resident. I feel so fortunate to have know Anne. My prayers are with the family. Carolyn Anderson

Ann was a wonderful person. She was always there for me and was fully committed to her role at the hospital. I will never forget her smiling face. Mary Kelly McCollum

Wherever you were, no matter what was going on, Mrs Ann would sense when someone needed a prayer. She prayed for our nation and its leaders everyday. She prayed for our hospital and Cone Health leaders. She prayed with hundreds of patients who were about to go into surgery. Somehow, the word spread that God had a prayer warrior at Annie Penn Hospital that would pray with you if you asked her to, and did they ever ask! She prayed many prayers for me personally in the hallways of Annie Penn Hospital. When Ann prayed, holding your hand, Gods presence was so strong that you were always humbled by His love flowing thru her. Rick, Elizabeth, and grandchildren, It was such a privilege and honor to have known your Ann. I know that she is already wearing her Volunteer Badge, checking off the names for St. Peter. For in Anns words: God always had more for me to do... I love you Ann, and look forward to seeing you in heaven. Sharon Troxler
