WiensJohanSQ.jpgOn Thursday morning May 20, 2010 John Wiens aged 28 years of Roland, MB formerly of Winkler passed away with his family by his side.

John was born, the oldest of seven children to Heinrich and Susana Wiens on June 28, 1981 in Mexico. He was baptized on June 6, 1999 upon his belief in Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. He moved to Manitoba in 2002. On June 10, 2006, John married the love of his life, Neta Giesbrecht. They have shared a lot of happy times during their short marriage and a lot of sad meaningful times during John’s illness. He was diagnosed with Leukemia on February 1, 2009 during one of his trucking trips to Alberta. He spent a lot of time in the hospital since then and took a lot of chemo treatments. John did everything he could to try and beat the cancer but he was also prepared to go if Jesus wanted to take him home. On July 28, 2009, he was blessed to be healthy enough to be there when their son, Toby was born. Toby brought a lot of happiness to John, he was so proud of that little boy and so wanted to be there to see him grow up but we know he is in heaven now which is where he wanted to go. John was very sick for the last week during which time he said that he wished he could go home to heaven already.

He leaves to mourn his passing his beloved wife, Neta, his son, Toby, his parents, 3 sisters, Maria and Martin Friesen, Elena and Tina and 3 brothers, Abe and Sarah, David and Susie and Jake.

Funeral service was held Monday May 24, 2010 at Zion Mennonite Church in Schanzenfeld. Interment followed at the Church Cemetery.
