Vera Forbis

April 25, 1953 — November 18, 2022

Vera Louise Forbis, 69, of Kansas City, Missouri passed away on November 18, 2022. Vera was born on April 25, 1953 to Perl and Hazel Carter. She graduated from La Porte City High School. During her time in La Porte she met the love of her life, Dennis Forbis, when he stopped to ask her where he could find a phone book. They thought they would never see one another after that day, but as fate would have it they crossed paths again at a service station, where Dennis was working, and the two were inseparable ever since. Dennis and Vera were married on June 12, 1972 and from this marriage were blessed with four children. Dennis’s job allowed them to move all throughout the United States -Texas, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and eventually Missouri where they stayed in the Kansas City area. Vera never minded all of the travelling and especially didn’t mind upgrading their family home each time they relocated. She made every house feel like home with her exquisite cooking and baking. She spent much of her 30+ years working in collections, retiring from Citi Bank in 2020. Outside of work she enjoyed shopping, reading, watching Lifetime Christmas movies and crime shows, and she was a talented singer and enjoyed listening to music. Above all her family and her faith were the most cherished aspects of her life. She was a devoted Christian and member of Life Church.

Vera is preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Carolyn Kemp, Lila Carter, and Judith Eldridge. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by her husband, Dennis; children, Heather (Todd) Rosendahl, Valarie (Cory) Cannon, Andrea (Ross) Poile, and Aaron Forbis; grandchildren, Sheldon Jones, Brighton Jones, Caleb Rosendahl, Colton and Hope Cannon, and Rosie, Jewels, and Blu; great grandchildren, Charle, Josie, and Violet Jones; and many extended family and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Terrace Park Funeral Home on Saturday, December 10th, with a gathering of family and friends from 10-11am and the funeral service beginning at 11am. Following the dedication at the inurnment site, a reception will be held at the Lakeside Chapel at 12:00pm. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Life Church - You Version Bible Translation (www.youversion.com/giving)
“He who finds CHRIST, finds LIFE.”
