On Monday September 7th, 2020, Misty Marlene Fortner (Widner), loving wife, daughter and mother of three children, unexpectedly passed away at the age of 51 in her home located in Pilot Rock Oregon.
Misty was born on April 13th, 1969 in Pendleton Oregon to Kenneth Dean and Audrey Kathryn Widner.  She was raised in Pilot Rock Oregon where she graduated high school in 1987.  Misty met her husband James Ive Fortner and moved to Idaho in 1996.  They later renewed their commitment to each other in April of 2010.  Together they raised three children, Kenneth David Allen Townsend, Shana Michelle Fortner and Dakota James Fortner.  The family moved back to Pilot Rock Oregon in 2014.

Misty spent her life caring for her family.  She loved her children, husband, and close friends fiercely.  One of her greatest joys was spending time with her granddaughter Leigha Marlene Townsend.  She enjoyed cooking and baking especially for her brother when he would come to visit. She liked going to the mountains and walking outdoors, she loved listening to music, going to and watching car racing and spending time with her father almost daily to visit and care for him.  

Misty was often quiet and reserved, but quick to smile.  She was known for her quirky sense of humor and her kind, compassionate spirit.  She was very generous especially to children in the family and always supported or rooted for the underdog.

Misty was preceded in death by her mother Audrey Widner (Low).  She is survived by her husband Jim; Children, David, Shana and Dakota and Granddaughter Leigha.  Her father Kenny;  Sisters, Dawn (Justin) Harvey, Kathy (Jim) Kinkead, Kenna (Chris) Wallace and brother Kenny (Gressa) Widner, several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and her grandmother Kathryn Low.
