I am looking for a wireless mouse and keyboard that will work through walls at a distance of at least 40 feet.  Are there any models available that will do so?

Logitech never got dethroned as the top wireless keyboard and mouse manufacturer for decades now. And for a good reason. However, even their products are ranged at 30 feet (no walls).
Since there's a wall between it, you can't even see what you're doing even if there was such a product? So more sensible solution would maybe be a cheap laptop, connect to wifi, and remote take over the original screen (assuming it's another PC)

Finding Mice and Keyboards that will go a great distance is very difficult.

One that I have heard about is the Gyration Wireless Air Mouse Mobile.  However I have not had firsthand use of the product.  So I can't guarantee that it will meet your requirements especially going through a wall.

It boasts 100' (30m) wireless range.

Also looks like they make keyboards that also boast 100' wireless range.
