Carla A Forister

December 22, 1947 — June 1, 2023



Carla Ann Forister, 75, of Cheyenne passed away June 1, 2023, after a long battle with cancer.


Carla was born December 22, 1947, in McAllen, Texas to Carl and Leona Davidshofer. She grew up in White Clay, Nebraska and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. She considered Evanston, Wyoming home and worked as a nurse for the Wyoming State Hospital and several private companies. She loved working with her clients, most of whom were developmentally disabled. “Nurse Carla” was equally adored by her clients.  


Carla’s greatest joy in life was being a mother and grandmother. She raised her two sons to be generally decent human beings by teaching them her strong values: integrity, hard work, generosity, a bad sense of humor, and being a good neighbor.


Carla is preceded in death by her parents, former husbands Roy Paul, Dennis Sundberg and Dennis Forester. She is survived by her sons Ed Paul of Cheyenne and Chris (Sarah) Sundberg of Dallas; and grandchildren Krystal Paul of Pocatello, Mikel Paul of Salt Lake, Jacob Paul of Cheyenne, and Virginia and Margaret Sundberg of Dallas.
