January 18, 1934 – July 4, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Herb Wiebe from Abbotsford, BC. He went to be with his Lord and Savior after a difficult struggle with cancer. He was surrounded by his family at the Mission Hospital Hospice.
Herb was born on January 18, 1934 to Jacob & Agatha Wiebe in Turtle Mountain, Manitoba, and grew up with his three brothers, John, Bill and Jack. They moved to Abbotsford in 1947. He married his sweetheart, Judy Hiebert, on June 27, 1959.
Herb graduated from M.E.I. followed by working with MCC in Germany. Upon returning to BC, he continued his education at UBC and graduated in Civil Engineering. After a few years, Herb decided he did not enjoy working in an office and preferred to be outdoors, working as his own boss in construction and property development.
Herb is survived by his wife, Judy Wiebe, his three daughters, Colleen Redekop (Chuck Fiehn), Trish (Bill) Ratzlaff, and Alison (Ken) Scott, his ten grandchildren, Carmen (Derrick), Nicole (Andrew), Jennifer (Garrett), Marissa (Lance), Tyson (Olivia), Trenton (Jessica), Tessa (Josiah), Regan (Michael), Matthew (Anna) and Peyton, and his ten great grandchildren. Herb was preceded by his parents, Jacob and Agatha Wiebe, and his three brothers, John, Bill and Jack.
A celebration of Herb’s life will be held privately but will be live streamed for those that cannot come. We would be grateful if you could pass this message along to anyone who knew Herb and would like to join the family in our celebration of his life.
We want to say a special thank you to the loving and caring staff at the Christine Morrison Hospice Unit as well as the helpful staff at the Mission Hospital. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Herb’s name to The Gideons International organization.
