Barbara Ann Brown Foster


Barbara Ann Foster was born March 8, 1953, in West Memphis, Arkansas to Alberta Brown.

Barbara was educated in the Kansas City School District at Greenwood Elementary and graduated from Southeast High School in 1971.

Barbara worked at Old American Life Insurance Company, and later, Kansas City Life Insurance Company for over thirty years as a diligent and loyal employee, retiring in 2009. She picked up a part-time job at Jones Department Store, (Macy’s) where she developed her love for designer purses and perfume.

Barbara met and married Ronald Wayne Foster Sr., in 1972, and was blessed with three children, LaShelle Yvonne, Ronald Wayne Jr., and   Tonoa Rae.

She was a member of Swope Parkway Church of Christ, where she was baptized around her loved ones.

Barbara enjoyed spending time with family watching movies and two-stepping. She was fiercely protective and loyal to her family and looked forward to every holiday, especially Christmas and the 4th of July. She was full of life and would often drive by the fire stations just to honk and wave at the firemen.

Barbara loved watching TV in her rocking chair eating ice. If you called her during the day, she was watching General Hospital and would not stay on the phone long. Any other time of the day you could guarantee that she was watching The Godfather or Law & Order.

Barbara departed this life on Friday, June 17, 2022. Her mother, Alberta Donaldson; father, Everett Donaldson Sr.; sisters, Joyce Brown, and    Brenda Donaldson; brother, Kenneth Donaldson; and granddaughter, Kendall Foster, all preceded her in death.

Barbara leaves to cherish her memory three children, LaShelle Love, Ronald Foster Jr. (Francine), and Tonoa Foster; two sisters, Linda       Donaldson and Courtney Parker (Conrad); two brothers, Leonard Donaldson (Beverly), and Everett Donaldson Jr, both of Houston, Texas; grand-daughters, Toni Love, Skyler Foster, and Kamryn Foster; grandsons, Keith Love, Taylor Foster, and Rashad Morning, six great-grand-children, nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
