November 8, 1944 - April 17, 2020
Gennine Lou Foster passed away suddenly on April 17th, 2020. Gennine was born on November 8th, 1944 to Ernie and Daisy Stipp of Cedar Falls, Iowa - where she was raised when a young child. She and her family eventually ended up in Cheyenne, Wyoming where she attended Central High School. It was during High School that she served as the Honored Queen at Jobs Daughters Bethel No. 44. Shortly thereafter, she met Lloyd Howard Foster from Baldwin, Wisconsin. Lloyd recalled meeting Gennine, whom was working at the Capitol Building at the time, and thinking how beautiful and brilliant that she was. Lloyd was driving his prized 57 Chevy Belair when they ran in to each other at the A&W and fell in love. He did not understand what she could have seen in an Airman First Class. On October 19th, 1963 Lloyd and Gennine were married at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Fort Collins, Colorado. After their marriage, they spent time in Wyoming, Wisconsin and Colorado. Gennine also spent some time in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2005, she returned to Eaton, Colorado where she resided until her death. Gennine was dedicated to developing herself professionally. She took her careers seriously and strived for excellence in all she did. Gennine started her professional career working as an Executive Secretary for both Hurst and Applegate and Allen and Mitchell law firms. When Lloyd and Gennine were first married and living in Cheyenne, Gennine worked for the State in the Education Department. Eventually, they ended up moving to Laramie, Wyoming and this is where Lloyd and Gennine owned and operated L&G Auto Care/East Grand Texaco & U-Haul. While in Laramie, Gennine also worked for the Wyoming Highway Department. Later, Gennine spent some time in Las Vegas with her beloved sister and her family. She successfully started her own business, Foster Appraisal, before she eventually retired as an Appraisal Reviewer with Countrywide Home Loans. Gennine’s most important things in her life were her faith, family, home and making great meals and memories. While in Laramie, Gennine loved to frequent Lake Marie and loved watching her daughter’s ride their ponies around the plains. Both Lloyd and Gennine loved Wyoming’s wide-open spaces and the mountain views of the Colorado Front Range. She was an amazing mother who loved to puzzle, interior design her home, and refinish furniture. She was proud of her time spent in Laramie as Guardian of Jobs Daughters Bethel No. 2. Gennine is survived by her husband Lloyd Foster of Eaton, Colorado; daughters Stephanie and her husband Brian Cones of Tie Siding, Wyoming; and Heather Foster-Groom of Fort Collins, Colorado, as well as her only grandson, Cameron Ronald Gibson of Greeley, Colorado. Gennine is also survived by her Brother-In-Law, John Raines of North Carolina; Sister-In-Law, Joyce Mork of Wisconsin; Sister-In-Laws Phyllis Sticha and Marilyn Bennett both of Arizona; along with numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Linda Sue; and her much loved niece, Kristie Raines. At this time, due to the country’s unfortunate situation, the family will arrange to have a celebration of life at a later date. She was loved and will be greatly missed by her family, friends and her beloved dog, Buddee.
