Maria Elizabeth Bohigas Foster, 53, went to be with Jesus face to face on Friday, July 16, 2021, after a ten month valiant battle with cancer.
Maria was born in Alamance County, NC, to the late José and Lourdes Bohigas. She and her family moved to Fredericksburg, VA, in 2004. An educator at heart, she homeschooled her two children and taught English as a second language to adults for many years. She was a loyal friend, mother to many, compassionate advocate, and devoted lover of Jesus. She passed on her passion for music and worship to her two daughters and taught them to delight in beauty and life.
Maria will be lovingly remembered by her faithful husband of 30 years, Kip Foster; two daughters, Sarah Foster and Lydia Burgess; son-in-law Blue Burgess; brother Bernie Bohigas and his wife; nephew Brandon Bohigas and his wife and children; mother-in-law Peggie Foster; sister-in-law Beverly Foster and her husband and children.
