Adele “Addie” Lynn Forson October 10, 1975 - April 11, 2023
Our little sister, Adele “Addie” Lynn Forson, 47, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, April 11 – just five days after putting our mother to rest. We believe she died of a broken heart. Addie was born on her grandmother, Adelyn Lovell’s birthday, Oct. 10, 1975, and was lovingly named Adele Lynn in her honor. Addie was a silly and fun-loving child, who loved to cook, to be outside and loved animals. Those passions stayed with her for her whole life. You could often find her out in the shop or up in the fields working with her dad. She fawned over the new calves, lambs and kids each year in the spring. She couldn’t pass up the chance to pet and play with any kind of dog – especially puppies. Addie tried every new recipe she ever came across and had a library full of cookbooks and handwritten cards – always adding her own twist to make them even better. The Deer Lodge community had come to count on her baking skills and freshly made sandwiches, rolls, muffins, breads, donuts and cakes she created with pride as the Bakery Manager at Valley Foods Grocery in her hometown. Addie was a quiet, private person, but those who were lucky enough to get close to her knew her as a smart, funny, loyal and kind soul who just wanted to laugh and be loved. Her time on earth was cut way too short, and she will be deeply missed. Please take a moment to smile when you remember her and hug your loved ones as often as you can. Adele was preceded in death by her grandparents Frank and Adelyn Lovell and Alfred and Ruth Forson, and her parents, Richard and Darlene Forson. Adele is survived by her brother, Leonard Forson (Stacey); sister, Deldee Castorena; nephews, Brandon and Austin Forson; niece, Gracie Castorena; fur baby, Luci; and good friend, Nadine Salo. A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 28, at Hillcrest Cemetery, W. Milwaukee Avenue, Deer Lodge. Following the service there will be a luncheon starting at noon at the Powell County Community Center, 416 Cottonwood Ave., Deer Lodge. All are welcome. Memorial donations can be made to the charity of choice. Please visit www.axelsonfuneralhome.com to offer the family a condolence or to share a memory of Addie.
