WIEBE – Mary Wiebe

    85

    Wiebe – Mary Wiebe of Brooks, beloved wife of the late Peter Wiebe, passed away in Brooks on Tuesday, July 14th, 2020 at the age of 94 years.  Mary is survived by her oldest daughter Maryanne Shields and her children Michael (Debra) Shields and Marnie (Samba) Shields all of Calgary; son in-law Doug (Lorette) Wright of Taber, and his daughters Coralee (Dwayne) Skretting of Brooks, and Jennifer (Marty) Wright of Taber; daughter-in-law Bev Wiebe of Brooks, and her daughters Tracy (Ron) Davis of Brooks, Misty Smith of Medicine Hat, and Christina (Angus) Fizzard of Brooks.  She is also survived by her sister Beth Teghtmeyer of Spirit River, Alberta and numerous family members who will dearly miss her.  She is predeceased by her husband Peter Wiebe, daughter Carol Wright, son Doug Wiebe, son Craig Wiebe, and son-in-law Lorne Shields.  Her parents Henry and Elizabeth Isaac; sisters Elizabeth Isaac and Helen Krahn; brothers Hank Isaac and Jake Isaac.  Mary was born April 2nd, 1926 in Rosthern, Saskatchewan, first born of 6 six children for Henry and Elizabeth Isaac.  Her family moved to Alberta in 1930 and farmed in the Rosemary area. On February 21st, 1948 she married her husband Peter Wiebe.  Together they farmed in the Scandia area and raised their family.  Maryanne was their first born in 1951.  Carol was born in 1955, Doug in 1958 and Craig in 1962.  Peter and Mary lived in Scandia, until they retired and moved into Brooks in 1974.  Mary was an incredibly hard-working woman.  She stepped up as a young girl to help her mom on the farm and care for her younger siblings when her father passed.  She always lived a simple life raising and growing her family’s food, everything homemade, she was a real “do it yourself” woman, well known for her cooking, baking, sewing and knitting.  Though the pandemic kept loved ones away for a long time Mary was blessed to have a good full day with Maryanne by her side.  Though never wealthy, Mary leaves family and friends with a rich legacy of love, strength, service and faith.  We are all blessed in knowing her and learning from her example of hard work, values and appreciating what you have.  In her younger years, Mary stayed active and willing to serve in church groups and organizations.  She has always been generous in fundraisers and helping others, and too often bared the heart ache of loved ones suffering through ALS, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. If friends and family so desire, they may donate in Mary’s honor directly to a charity or organization of their choice.  A private Family Graveside Service was held on Friday, July 17th at 2:00 PM at the Brooks Cemetery.
