She was born in Walsenburg, Colorado, to Edward and Celia DeLuna Wilkins on June 30, 1940 (81 years old). She temporarily went to sleep in death on September 24, 2021.

She is survived by her husband, Glen Forney, a sister, Laurie Jackson of Montrose, Colorado; her 4 children: Jana Van Cleave of New Braunfuls, Texas; Kyle (Jessica) Forney of Kirkland, Washington; Kelly (Thom) Lumbley of San Angelo, Texas; Kanon (LeAnn) Forney of Carthage, Texas.

She was a graduate of Huerfano High School in 1958. She wed Glen on July 12, 1958, and they were happily married for 63 years. On January 10, 1959, she symbolized her dedication to serve Jehovah God as a loyal Jehovah's Witness since then. She set a wonderful example of being a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She had so many loving qualities worthy of imitation. 

She derived much joy in teaching Bible truths to individuals including the scriptural hope of an earthly resurrection and future Kingdom blessings. Revelation 21:3-5; Psalm 37:10,11.
