Joseph and community were shocked to learn of the passing of Roscoe Foster Wednesday morning at the Enterprise hospital although he had been in ill health for several months.

He leaves his wife, Lola; two daughters, Annamay of Joseph and Mrs. Raymon Beach (Arlene) of Medford; two brothers, Lyle and “Punch” of Joseph; and one sister, Mrs. Nellie Boner, of Portland.

A more complete obituary will follow next week.
