Jacob “Jake” Wiebe

1918 – 2011 

WiebeJakeSQAs peacefully as he lived, so Jake died at Boundary Trails Health Centre at the age of 92 years. It is with mixed sadness and joy that he is no longer with us. 

He leaves behind his daughter, Pearl and her husband, Clint Toews, son, Richard and his wife Anna Gulyas, three grandchildren, Burke and his wife Eiko, Heidi and her husband, Denis Tremblay and Donovan as well as nine great grandchildren. 

Jake was predeceased by his wife, Mary (nee Stoesz) in 1991, his parents, Jacob H and Maria Wiebe, three brothers and two sisters. 

He spent many years working as a Purchasing Agent and Warehouse Manager for Majestic Pipelines. During those years, the family travelled with him as the Trans Canada line was laid between Alberta and Ontario. Among other job opportunities, his last one found him managing a condominium from which he retired when he was 85. You could also find him as a “greeter” at Grant Memorial Baptist Church and later at Morden Alliance church. For most of his years, he and Mary lived in Winnipeg. For the last four years, he had been living at the Tabor Home apartments. He thoroughly enjoyed his time there and met many new friends who enjoyed him, too. Jake was blessed with excellent health all his life until this last year when he was diagnosed with leukemia. 

A celebration of life and love was held on Tuesday March 1, 2011 at Morden Alliance Church in Morden with interment at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens in Winnipeg. 

Thank you to all Jake’s friends who visited or sat with him. The family extends thanks to Dr. Mostert and the palliative care nurses and staff at BTHC for their compassionate care. 

In lieu of flowers, donations in Jake’s memory may be made to Global Family Foundation (FB) a Christian organization providing education for children in poverty. Please send to Box 28025 RPO North Kildonan, Winnipeg, MB R2G 4E9.
