A bronze plaque on a stone marker was dedicated to Blanche Foss in the Belfast Free Library’s Miller Street garden Wednesday, July 8.

The plaque marks the date of the Belfast resident’s passing, Sept. 29, 2014. It was purchased with donations from Belfast Garden Club members, who wanted to remember Foss in the garden she cared for as a member of the club’s Civic Beautification Committee.

Some 25 people, including her children, Scott Foss of Truckee, Calif., and Lisa Foss of Pinellas Park, Fla., attended the morning ceremony. The club provided coffee cakes, cookies and lemonade at a reception held after the stone was placed by Scott Foss.

“Mom always loved to garden,” recalled Lisa Foss, who said her mother belonged to the Vernon Garden Club when the family lived in Connecticut, where Blanche worked as an educator. “She met many wonderful people and enjoyed many trips to see gardens around the country.”
