Vivian Ver Huel

Vivian, 52, passed away on March 13, 2018 at home surrounded by her family after a hard fought battle with cancer. Visitation will be 5-7 p.m., Friday, at Brooks Funeral Care, 7975 University Blvd. in Clive.  Her funeral will be at 10 a.m., Saturday, at West Des Moines Open Bible Church, 1100 Ashworth Road in West Des Moines, with burial to follow at Resthaven Cemetery.

 

Vivian was born November 15, 1965 in Mattoon, Illinois, the daughter of Harold and Elizabeth Jane (Weber) Vahling. Following high school graduation, she attended and graduated from the University of Illinois.  Vivian was an Independent Living Teacher with the Iowa Department for the Blind for 27 years.  Her positive attitude and determination were an inspiration to the clients she counselled.

 

Vivian enjoyed traveling, playing piano, cooking (she made the best oatmeal cookies), and making cards and gifts for family and friends. She had strong Christian faith.

 

Vivian is survived by her husband of 24 years, Matt Ver Huel; her parents, Harold and Jane Vahling; siblings: Bryan (Michelle) Vahling, Kathy (Kent) Spencer, and Steve Vahling; and several nieces and nephews.

 

Memorial contributions are suggested to the Iowa Council of United Blind.
