Melissa Foster also known as “Lissa”, born July 12, 1968, to Lois Foster and Larry Hitt at the MCV hospital in Richmond, Virginia, lost her short battle to an aggressive cancer on April 13, 2022 while her loving sister Sade foster embrace her with love and watched as she transitioned onward to capture her wings.

“Lissa” is proceeded in death by her father Larry Hitt, grandmother Myrtle Mae Martin-Farmer, as well as Aunts Frances Synan and Nancy Sullivan. She leaves behind her mother Lois Foster, her only son Antonio Jones (wife Emily Jones), two granddaughters Aubrey Jones (daughter of Alexis) and Mileta Jones, three sisters Sade Foster, Annette Foster and Bunny Foster as well as her surviving Aunts Betty Archie and Earlis Jett. Melissa worked as a housekeeper at Homewood Suites located within Central Park.

She was known by everyone as a hardworking, dependable person and would constantly walk up and down Fall Hill Ave to make it to and from work or anywhere else her heart desired. Lissa waited for no one and would get where she needed by any means. At her job she was blessed to have a great bunch of co-workers who she spent a lot of her days with laughing, dancing making TikTok videos and many more fun activities. Her hobbies included spending time with her granddaughter and shopping, mostly at Walmart. More times than not she would combine her favorite activities and would go shopping with her granddaughter.

Melissa loved her family and could often be seen out visiting and enjoying her family time. Melissa loved life in general, she loved to look nice, feel nice and she certainly loved to show off her curves anytime she could. would often worry about her loved ones and if they were safe. Lissa was filled with love and joy, and she spread it throughout the world touching the hearts of everyone she embraced. To her son she was the light that guided him through the toughest times in life. She had such a warm and calming presence no matter how she felt on the inside or how hard her day may have been. She was there for everyone when she could and was the light within the darkest of days.

She showed those surrounding her how to be patient and what unconditional love really means, which has helped her son with being the father and husband he is today. Her strength, courage, and bravery she showed up to her last moments will forever live on through her family and friends who will always know that no matter how hard something gets continue to persevere. She will always be here with our family smiling and dancing saying, “I know that’s right” as we remember her and live our lives by the beat of her heart.
