Might be this woman, however she is in an orphanage in 1935 and 1940.

 US  Census, 1940  Ward 12, Buffalo, Buffalo City, Erie, NY

Residence St Vincent’s Home/ Female Orphan Asylum

name: Rachel Foster

Female age: 13  Single Pupil Race: C

birthplace: New York est birth  1927

residence in 1935: Same Place


U S Census, 1930  Pittsburgh (Districts 1-250), Allegheny, PA

head  Abe Araton M 39 AL

boarder  Henry Foster M 27 US/LA/LA

wife  Ethel Foster F 22 LA/LA/LA

daughter  Rachel Foster  F 3 NY/LA/LA

This is the woman in question. Is there more information on additional family memebers related to Henry ,Ethel, and Rachel Foster.
I didn't locate any other information - such as a death for Ethel between 1930 and 1935, or Ethel in a census after 1930, there just wasn't enough there to go on.  As for Henry, on the the census it just listed his birthplace as 'United States' which was of no help in further searches.
