Mike Anderson ~ Class of 1969

Departed ~ March 2009 ~ Details unknown

My father is Michael Bernard Anderson and he was a graduate of the International School of Bangkok, Class of 1969. I came across his membership to this networking site through a Google search of his name–my father recently passed away last March (2009). I was wondering if there would be a possible to view his account or perhaps reset his password? I just would like to know if he was in contact with his old classmates… If you would need more verification of my relationship with him or if this is not at all possible due to privacy issues, please let me know.

Thank you

Gwen Anderson (daughter of Michael Bernard Anderson)

Tracie Lee Olson
Posted: 07/14/2009 5:56 PM
Tracie Lee Olson, 56, was called by God to come home on July 10, 2009. She passed away peacefully at Central Wyoming Hospice. Tracie was born in Texas City, TX, on Aug 8, 1952, to Ray and Jean Toups and was the 2nd oldest of six children. Her father’s work took the family to Europe and Asia, and she attended grade school in Naples Italy. She graduated from the International School of Bangkok, Thailand, in 1970. When she returned to the United States, she met her soul mate, Randy Olson. They were married Oct. 9, 1970 and settled in Casper, Wyoming where they raised two sons. Tracie worked for the federal government for 25 years and retired as Supervising Budget Analyst and Administrative Officer for the Bureau of Reclamation. Tracie was a favorite Sunday and Vacation Bible School teacher and member of Faith Bible Chapel. One of her passions was teaching young people. She was known for her storytelling and delightful sense of humor. She will always be remembered for scaring her nieces and nephews with a gripping story of “Squish Plop” while floating down the river at dusk. She relished being voted “Gumbo Queen” numerous times over the last two decades at the annual family gumbo cook-off. Tracie also loved the water. Many of Randy and Tracie’s travels took them to a lake or the ocean, where they enjoyed fishing together. Tracie was a breast cancer survivor for 12 years. She enjoyed a full and wonderful life during this period. She encouraged all around her with her witty and whimsical personality. Her greatest joys were her family, her church, and her savior, Jesus Christ. Tracie is survived by her husband of 38 years, Randy Olson, her son, Patrick (Monica) Olson, grandson, Ryun Olson, and father Ray Toups. Her brothers & sisters of Casper include Pete (Christy) Toups, Stephen (Cathy) Toups, Joe (Carol) Toups and Terry (Patrick) Gallagher, as well as Shelly (Ron) Coddington of North Carolina. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Jane (Lyle) Webb of Minnesota and by many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother, Jean Toups, and her son Jacob Olson. Visitation and viewing will be July 14 at Newcomer Funeral Home from 6-8p.m. The funeral service will be 10:00 a.m. Wed., July 15, at Faith Bible Chapel with Pastor Dale Fitzsimmons officiating. Burial will follow at the Veterans Cemetery. Colorful casual attire is encouraged. In lieu of flowers, donations to Faith Bible Chapel Sunday School/Youth would be appreciated by the family.
