1922 – 2014
KATIE WIEBE, beloved wife of the late William Wiebe, passed away peacefully on April 16, 2014. Her last years were spent at Edith Cavell Care Centre where she received loving care to the end. Thank you. Katie was born on May 4, 1922, near Winkler, Manitoba where she was raised. She married William Wiebe in 1941 and together they raised seven children. Times were difficult and in 1963 they decided to move to Alberta, the land of opportunity. Alberta became home to them from that time on. Katie was a warm, loving person who enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. The best times were family gatherings with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There were always cookies in the cookie jar for the kids and she made the best Verenki and baked the best bread and buns. Katie is survived by her children, Albert (Tina), John (Wendy), Katherine, Roy (Leslie), Alvin (Beverly), Shirley (Randy), and daughter-in-law Anne, as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter. Katie was predeceased by her husband, William in 1988 and her oldest son Menno in 2006. The funeral service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge on Monday, April 21, 2014 at 11:00 A.M., with Reverend Rodger Halvorsen officiating. A time of fellowship & refreshments will follow. Interment will be held at the Claresholm Cemetery on Tuesday morning at 11:00 A.M. In Katies memory, please do something nice for someone whenever you can. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.
