VAN LARE-ANDERSON , Doreen Vivian (nee Wheeler) It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Doreen Vivian Van Lare-Anderson (nee Wheeler). Following a long and courageous battle with cancer, "Mummsey" succumbed to the disease peacefully at the Foothills Country Hospice (Okotoks area) surrounded by her family in the early morning hours of Saturday, July 18, 2009 at the age of 84 years. The youngest of five siblings: George (predeceased in December 2000), Frances, Eva, and Markham. Doreen was born in Acme, Alberta, on April 17, 1925 to Katherine "Kate" (nee Markham) and Arthur Wheeler. In April 1961 Doreen married William David Van Lare of Crossfield, Alberta (predeceased in February 1995). Doreen is survived by their two children: Katherine (Matt) and Wheeler (Nick). She also leaves behind her husband of ten years, Clayton Anderson of Calgary. Doreen attended Mount Royal College in Calgary in 1948 where she studied and received a Secretarial Diploma. She returned to Acme to work in her father's insurance office for several years before she and husband Bill moved to Calgary in 1969. She continued in similar administrative work at Woods Christian Home and the Calgary General Hospital in the emergency and respiratory departments until her retirement in 1985. Doreen had many passions and interests including bridge, gardening, writing, painting and in particular, dancing and music. Singing in public since she was three, over the years Doreen had been a member of many different community and church choirs and often performed as a soloist. Mummsey had a zest for life and wonderful sense of humour and those who met her seemed to instantly develop a fondness for her infectious smile and outgoing personality. She loved to laugh and always had a twinkle in her eye like she was up to something. Many thanks to Dr. Gloria Mazloum and the wonderful, caring and compassionate staff at the Foothills Country Hospice. In lieu of flowers those that desire are encouraged to make a donation to the Foothills Country Hospice Society. A celebration of Doreen's life will take place on Thursday, July 23, at 2:00 p.m. at St. Peter's Anglican Church in Okotoks. Published in the Calgary Herald on 7/20/2009
