Lenise Marie (Turner) Forbes, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend left this earth peacefully from her home Wednesday, February 14, 2024, at the young age of 63. Lenise leaves a legacy of compassion, love and deep-rooted faith in God.

On September 30, 1960, in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Lenise’s birth blessed Charles and Karen Turner as their first of three children. Later, her sister, Shellie (Turner) Chenoweth and brother Charles Turner completed their family.

Lenise was united with Curt Stiles on April 4, 2019 and gained bonus daughters, Jennifer Stiles, Kristen Gilbert and husband Nicholas, three grandchildren Finn, Adeleigh and Beckett Gilbert.

Lenise was preceded in death by her Grandfather, Vincent Dehart, Grandmother, Deloris Dehart and her Father, Charles Turner.
