Obituary

Billie C. Tyler passed in peace on December 15, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Billie C. Tyler, affectionally known to all as “Mama” was born May 31, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan
to parents Albert Henry Foster and Dorothy Foster. She came to Boston at a young age with her mother and four sisters. She attended the Boston public school system and graduated from Girls High in Roxbury Ma.

In 1965 Billie “Mama” worked two full time jobs to support her children. One as a phone operator for the New England Telephone company, also a booth operator for the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority.
She loved music and was quite a dancer. You could not tell her she couldn’t dance. If you challenged her, she would get up and prove you wrong.

Billie was tough on keeping her children in line, and any other child that she met. She raised her children with an iron fist, but still gave them her wit, strength, determination and words of wisdom that was never appreciated at times. She would tell you like it is and did not care about how you felt but would love you the same.

She was preceded in death by her husband Vance C. Tyler I, parents Albert Henry Foster and Dorothy Foster, three sisters Gwendolyn Foster, Carolyn Foster and Rosemary Smith.

She is survived by her four children Vance C. Tyler II, Pamela, Darrell (Dia Roberts-Tyler) and Shawn; fourteen grandchildren, Sa’Tara, Rashod, Jashoda, Samani, Michaura, Joshua (Ey-Shawn), JoVonni, Daje, Daria, Shawn, Danae, Vance, Tyreke and Anthony; four great grandchildren, One sister Adorothy “Chink” Wilson, three sisters-in-laws, four brothers-in-laws and a host of nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. Billie “Mama” was a great woman and will be deeply missed by all of whom she touched.

A Viewing will be held on Saturday, December 22, 2018 from 2:00 to 3:00pm followed by Funeral Service at 3:00 O’clock at Grant A.M.E. Church 1906 Washington St, Boston, MA 02118 .

Final Disposition: St. Michael Crematory

To the family and friends of Billie, Please accept my sincere condolences. Death is never an easy thing to deal with. I have to reflect on Jesus response when he learned that Lazarus his friend had died. At John 11:33,35 We read that Jesus was troubled and that he wept. Some say we must be strong, but can you think of anyone stronger than Jesus? Just think, Jesus has the power to resurrect and he wept over this death. In the very near future Jesus will excercise this same power to resurrect our dear loved ones. John 5:28,29. May you find comfort in the hope of the resurrection. Denise L.

I wish to express my condolences in the death of your loved one. The Bible at Acts 24:15 promises a resurrection of our loved ones and death will be no more. Revelation 21:3 & 4. What a wonderful hope we can look forward to. Psalm 36:9 tells us that God is the source of life. I hope that these words from the Bible will bring you comfort at this difficult time. My prayers are with you and your family.
