It is with the heaviest of hearts we announce the passing of Kluane Bear, beloved wife of Greg Anderson of Champion, Alberta.
Kluane is survived by her mother Mildred Bear (Varty), the late Leslie Bear (predeceased); husband Greg Anderson; son Branden Scott Bear (Junghee Hyun); daughters Taylor Marie Bear (Ryan Meredith) and daughter Cassady Jade Bear (Alex Gehring); son Phillip Gerald Mayer-Bear (Brianna Jays); stepmother to Logan Anderson (Kim Bercheid); sister to Scott Gerald Bear and Jodie May Bear; grandson Alexander R. McKay; granddaughter Serena Jade Meredith-Bear; her cats Tatonka, Blake, Sprocket, and Princess; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, extended family, and good friends.
Kluane was born at the Grace Hospital, in Calgary Alberta. She was raised in the communities of Montgomery and Bowness. Growing up Kluane enjoyed spending her days closely with her siblings and was always surrounded by her family and friends, which also continued after she started her own family.
She enjoyed cooking her entire life which further led to her becoming a Chef. After many years in Calgary, Kluane moved to southern Alberta where she met her husband Greg Anderson. They spent many years traveling and camping alongside their cats, enjoying new adventures together. Together they enjoyed hot days on their boat in Arizona. Kluane spent her Sundays dressed in pink camo with a good cup of black tea (with a splash of Bailey's), watching Sunday Nascar and eating her favorite snacks, while her cats kept them company.
Kluane was always laughing, enjoying every moment. She was always there when her family and friends needed anything, whether that was a good talk, laugh or cry. She left a lifelong impression wherever she went. Although taken far too soon, Kluane will be forever missed for her endless jokes, witty comments, knowledge of all things as well as her chic style.
You will forever be the Linda to my Marsha. Rest in paradise my beautiful Linda.

Until we meet again
Until we meet again we think about you always,
We talk about you still,
You have never been forgotten,
and you never will
We hold you close within our hearts
And there you will remain,
To walk and guide us through our lives,
until we meet again
