Peter Arthur Wiebe

1927 - 2018 

On Saturday, October 27, 2018, Peter A. Wiebe, 91, passed away at Boundary Trails Health Center, entering into eternal life with his Heavenly Father. 

Peter was born September 19, 1927 to Aron and Aganetha (Neufeld) Wiebe at their home south of Burwalde School. He grew up and worked on the family farm, raising various crops and livestock, enjoying his labor outdoors with God’s creation. At the age of 16, Peter gave his life to Christ. He attended schools at Debonair, Clegg & Badger finishing at the 8th grade to work full time with his Dad and brothers on the farm. On July 9, 1955 he married the love of his life, Delores Driedger. Although early married life in the late fifties brought its struggles to make ends meet they welcomed a son, Loren, within that first year. Two and a half years later, a daughter, Donna, arrived, after which they moved to the town of Morden. Working hard to provide for the growing family, Peter began to work as an electrician, making close ties to the customers he served. He eventually started his own electrical business: Pembina Electric, known to many in the community and surrounding area. Even with his 8th grade education he persevered to take courses and tests, traveling to Winnipeg, to become a Red-Sealed Journeyman Electrician. Through his more than 40 years of business he responded to many calls, not wishing to say “no” to someone’s request for his services. Peter lived out his faith in God through daily decisions whether in his business, serving on the church board, donating his services, or just regular attendance at church. He led by example through his devotion to church and God in family values, teaching through loving discipline, daily routines and family vacations. Grandchildren were a special blessing to Peter and he always displayed it in relating to each of them in unique ways. 

He is survived by his wife, Delores, children: Loren (Nancy) and Donna (Paul); grandchildren: Janessa BeauLac, Eryn (Eric) Klassen, Dillon BeauLac, Katelyn (Johnny) Neufeld, Kristyn, Matthew (Lisa) Wiebe and four great-grandchildren: Ty and Reed Klassen (Eryn), Delaney Neufeld (Katelyn) and Hayden Wiebe (Matthew) and siblings, Ann, Janice, Carol and Walter. He was predeceased by his parents and his siblings: sisters, Verna and Viola, and brother, Harold. He will be greatly missed and celebrated by many. We look forward to the day we meet again. 

A celebration of his life and legacy shared by family and friends on Wednesday October 31, 2018 at the Church of God in Morden with a private interment at Hillside Cemetery. Donations may be made in Peter’s memory to either Focus on the Family or Samaritan’s Purse.

Dear Dolores & Family
Peter was such a great man. A quiet and direct man that I was always pleased to have a little conversation with though quite few and far between these past few years but Peter would always give me that little short lived smile then back to a little more serious persona .He did many, many electrical projects for my Funeral Chapel and in my home over the years.
I always was very proud to call him my friend !
All the Best to all of you !
My sincere and deepest condolences to you all !
Rick
