Maxine Foster, the grand matriarch of Radium, died early Saturday morning. She was 93 years old.
She is survived by her daughter, Kathy Foster, of Hutchinson two grand children and many great grandchildren.
We can’t help but note she passed away shortly before the Radium community was gathering for a reunion. The night before she died, she attended an impromtu gathering at the Radium School where she commented on how many memories she had of being in that old school.
We suspect she’s enjoying a most wonderful reunion of all the people she’s loved and cared for. We will miss her greatly.
Alevo, Alevio, Alevo, Vivo Vum!

How we looked in 2011 at the Kansas Sesquicentennial Parade in Wichita. It was kind of fun to have people ask “Where’s Radium?” And then, we’d have to tell them all about it.
We’re looking forward to seeing folks who already know about Radium and Seward at the reunion this weekend.
Talked with Naomi (Miller) Culbreath this afternoon, the tornado that hit Moore, OK on Monday did not affect her. But the tornado that struck Edmund, OK.on Sunday came to within a 1/2 mile of her home. She did not have any damage and reports that she is fine.
To our neighbors
Our hearts go out to our neighbors in Oklahoma. We hope our family and friends remain safe as turbulent weather continues to pummel the area. We know how exhausted and overwhelmed they must be. We pray for their strength, courage and blessings.
Miss Kitty climbs her first tree. Big day in the ‘hood!
Congratulations to Jessica!
