Letha Michelle Foster
Letha was born on October 22, 1963 at the Spartanburg General Hospital in Spartanburg, South Carolina. On a sunny Friday morning, November 16, 2018 Letha peacefully entered into eternal rest at her home.
Letha was a faithful member of the Harrison Grove Baptist Church. Her beautiful angelic alto voice will be missed ringing throughout the Mass Choir where she also held the office of chaplain. She served as a Praise Team Worship Leader; the Sunbeam Choir Director; Vacation Bible School Music Director; a Student in the Adult Ladies Sunday School Class; and a Bus Driver for the Transportation ministry.
After graduating from Spartanburg High School in 1981, she furthered her education at Spartanburg Community College graduating with an Associate's Degree in Education and in 2005, she was conferred a Bachelor's Degree in Education, Business, and Communication from the University of South Carolina Upstate. Letha was employed as a Teacher's Assistant and Bus Driver at McCarthy Teszler for seven years. She was currently a teacher at Piedmont Community Action / Z.L. Madden Learning Center. The Foster, Butler, Woodruff and Roger's Family Reunion Committee, will miss her helping plan the annual reunion each summer.
Many will remember Letha as a Disc Jockey providing music for their private gatherings as 'DJ Shelly Shell.'
