Gerald (Jerry) Wiebe. April 26, 1936 – September 16, 2022
Jerry was born in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan to Bob and Retha Wiebe.
He was deeply loved by family and friends who remember him as a kind man and a wonderful storyteller with a fund of jokes to share. He loved people and would strike up a conversation with anyone. He had a beautiful smile and a twinkle in his eye. He loved to potter in his workshop with his grandchildren.
He is survived by Janet, his wife of 59 years; children Katherine Wiebe, Colin (Patty) Wiebe, and Heather (Dieter) Brandt; grandchildren Janelle (Cam) Louie, Isabelle Wiebe, Gabrielle Brandt, and Stephanie Brandt; and sisters Jane Katan and Dell Wiebe.
Jerry graduated from the U of A and taught school for 23 years. He also earned his painting certificate, and worked for five years at the Drumheller Penitentiary as a maintenance/painter/instructor. He also taught ESL mostly in evenings, and in between all of this and when he retired he did handymanning.
