Obituary for Debbie Rae Foster
Debbie Rae (Ulrich) Foster, 69, went home to be with Jesus on May 9, 2022. Debbie was born April 14, 1953, in Pekin, IL to Harry and Antoinette “Toni” (Borrelli) Ulrich, they preceded her in death. She was a loving wife, mother, Nonnie, sister, aunt, and friend.

Debbie married David W. Foster on April 22, 1978, in Peoria, IL, he survives. They were married 44 years and raised five children together, Brandy (Lonnie) Cassidy of Princeville, IL, Jamie (Kiran) Mohare of Peoria, IL, David (Kim) Foster, and Daniel (Christi) Foster both of Colorado Springs, CO, Toni Franklin from Indianapolis, IN and John Burnett of Peoria, IL. She was blessed with seven grandchildren, Nanda and Nayan Mohare, Robyn and Brooke Foster, Daniel Foster, Jr, Tyler, and Seth Cassidy, and one great-granddaughter Hope Cassidy. She is also survived by one brother Rick (Cathy) Ulrich of Trivoli, IL, one sister Tracy (Casey) Jones, of Peoria Heights, IL, three sisters by choice, Paula Hubbard, McLeansboro, IL, Marta (Mary Cotton) Salazar, Peoria, IL, and Jyoti Aurangadkar of India. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by two brothers, Michale and Mitchael Ulrich and one niece Christa Farmer.

One of her favorite past times was going thrift shopping, spending hours looking through everything that was there. When she asked anyone if they wanted to go with her, we all knew to ask where she was going because we were going to be in the Salvation Army for a long time. Whether she was at home or on vacation she knew where the thrift store was located. She was an avid crocheter, loved and collected jewelry, loved rocks, going on cruises and every year didn’t miss watching “The Ten Commandments”. The most important purpose for Debbie’s existence is that she lived by 1 John 3:16-18, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” She opened the door for anyone who needed a meal, an outfit, a place to sleep, or love. God blessed all that knew her.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday May 14, 2022, at the Peoria Christian Center at 1:00pm.

The Cremation Society of Mid-Illinois Co. Pekin/Peoria is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences may be made at
