Leatryce was born July 3, 1928, in Laurium, the only child of Eva Nordstrom. She spent her childhood in Copper City. At age 21 she married George Fosco of Negaunee. Together they raised 3 children.

Leatryce held a variety of jobs in her younger years. Most of all she enjoyed being with her family, traveling, playing bingo and going to the casinos.

Surviving are her children: Dennis (Nancy) Fosco, Candy (Glenn) Hintsala, and Gary (Terrie) Fosco, all of Negaunee; six grandchildren: Chad (Stephanie) Hintsala, Shelly (Bud) Aho, Kelly (Dave) Varda, Kimi (Brent) Steinberg, David and Kyle Fosco; 10 great-grandchildren: Megan, Autumn, and Tyler Hintsala, Brock and Maci Aho, Nicholas and Nathan Varda, and Avery, Addison, and Beckett Steinberg; one aunt, Dorothy Normand of Tucson, Ariz.; one sister-in-law, Betty Fosco of Negaunee; and her very loving companion and best friend for over 16 years, Chester Masters. She was preceded in death by her mother, her stepfather Raymond Geyer, and her husband, George M. Fosco on November 3, 1984.

The family gives a special thank you to the wonderful caring staff in the 200 wing of the Marquette County Medical Care Facility.

It was Leatryce’s wish to have a private family service. There will be no visitation. Those wishing to make an expression of sympathy may share their thoughts and memories at koskeyfuneralhome.com.
