Jeanne Katherine Wiebe (nee Giesbrecht)

1942 – 2019 

After a lengthy illness, Jeanne passed away on Friday January 4th, 2019 in her home with her husband of 56 years by her side. 

Mom will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her husband, Ron, their children and grandchildren: Tammy and Leon Hendrickx of Morden (their children Herman and Julio), Mark Wiebe and Erica Stecheson of Winnipeg, MB, Shauna and Miles McNarland of Brandon, MB (their children Elle and Gibson). Jeanne will also be missed by her siblings and their spouses as well as by numerous extended family members and friends. Jeanne will join several family members that have gone to Heaven before her: her mother, Katherina Wiebe, father, Henry Giesbrecht, step-father, Henry Funk, step-father, John Wiebe, mother-in-law, Ruth Wiebe, father-in-law, Jake Wiebe, her two sisters-in-law, Sandy Funk and Pat Giesbrecht. 

Jeanne was born to Katherina (nee Dyck) and Henry Giesbrecht in Wpg., Mb. At Concordia Hospital. She was the oldest child and a birthday present for her mother whose birthday was one-week later, May 24th. Jeanne had a dream of becoming a nurse and that became a reality. After graduating from high school, she enrolled in the LPN course. Jeanne loved serving as a nurse and worked at Grace Hospital and then later at the Morden General Hospital when a certain young man lured her back. In November 1961, Ron asked Jeanne to marry him. They were married on June 23rd, 1962 at the age of 20. They made their life in Morden. This is the community that Jeanne grew up in and she loved. Their three children were born and raised here. Jeanne was supportive of Ron’s terms as town councillor and church board as well as his many years of being a volunteer fireman and ambulance driver. When you elected Dad, you also got Mom – she was by him every step of the way. In 1982 Ron and Jeanne opened their own business selling real estate, insurance and autopac. In the later years, they sold off the insurance and autopac portion of the business and focused on real estate. Their office was filled was such loyal and supportive people that they became like family. During the 36 years of business they celebrated many ups and downs and met many great people! This past year they decided to slow down a little and closed the office. 

Jeanne had many health issues, but God put a good loving man in her life. Ron was a wonderful caregiver. Through several years of difficult symptoms, with many tests and a caring doctor Jeanne was diagnosed with Scleroderma in December 1993, a disease that was not heard of. She was very motivated to stay as healthy as possible and although this disease brought years of pain and struggles, she never lost her faith. In 2012, Jeanne and Ron were married 50 years and the family hosted a celebration for this great occasion. Family and friends gathered from far and wide. What a joyous and memorable day. God blessed them with love, joy, and peace—all that they needed in this chaotic world. Jeanne spent her time praying for her family and supporting them in everything they did. She loved watching her children and grandchildren take part and excel in their various activities. Mom never missed a Christmas concert, a graduation or any special event including barrel racing in the rain! Jeanne was an Amazing, Loving, Strong, Happy, Selfless and Graceful women. When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show it you have a thousand reasons to smile ? 

Funeral services were held on Thursday January 10th, 2019 at Westside Community Church with interment at Chapel Cemetery. Donations in Jeanne’s memory may be made to Scleroderma Manitoba. 

I lift my eyes to the hills where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.  Psalms 121:1-2

Whether it was at a wedding, a funeral, or some other family function, Jeanne was always ready to share a warm greeting and spend a bit of time getting "caught up" on what was happening in our lives. She had a way of taking in stride the things that came her way. We will remember her as a kind and caring friend. Ron, we're so sorry for your loss and we pray that you will be filled with wonderful memories and a powerful sense of God's love and presence in the days ahead.
