Tribute To Grandpa Wiebe

On Tuesday, April 15th, 2008 at Salem Home in Winkler, MB, Frank Wiebe, formerly of the Burwalde District near Winkler, aged 86 years passed away peacefully in his sleep.

Frank Wiebe, husband, father & grandfather was born on October 3, 1921 in the Burwalde School District to Peter P. & Margaret Wiebe.  Frank & Anne (Loewen) were married on October 1, 1949 & raised 2 children, Rick & Margo, on the home place.  They farmed, raised horses and later had a PMU operation.  When Frank's health no longer allowed him to do these things, his son, Rick, took over.

He loved his family (especially is 2 granddaughters, Tanya & Dusty) as well as people, music, horses, mules & trail rides.  Grandpa was always involved in horses, he loved Appaloosa's & mules & he especially loved driving them, in parades, trail rides, sleigh rides & for fun!

He was baptized by Pastor Deutschhausen into the Christian faith in 1960 and renewed his faith in Jesus Christ later in life.  As his health deteriorated, Dad spent the last 2 1/2 years of his life in Salem Home.  During this time, the staff at Salem were loving & compassionate to Dad & our family as well.  The family extends its sincerest thanks to everyone who helped make this time as comfortable as possible.

He leaves to mourn his passing his beloved wife of 58 years, Anne Wiebe of Winkler; 1 daughter Margo & Larry Friesen of the Morden district; 1 son Rick F. & Barb Wiebe of Burwalde; 2 granddaughters, Tanya & Bryan Gerbrandt of Morden and Dusty & Brad Dunn of Carman as well as 3 sisters, Esther Enns of Abbotsford, BC, Alvina and John McLaughlin of Parksville and Marjorie & Rev. Jerry  Hildebrand of Winkler; many nieces, nephews & friends.

We wouldn't give him up to anyone but You, Lord.
