Ewald Wiebe, (Anneliese’s husband) from BC, has passed away.  He had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s some years ago.   The funeral will be Saturday, October, 17th.


Ewaldo WiebeEwaldo Wiebe was born on May 7, 1945 in Curitiba, Brasil.  He was the youngest of  nine children.  His strong commitment and love of God’s word began and grew at home.  He was baptised in 1968.

Ewald is predeceased by his parents, Jacob & Helena Wiebe, sister, Marichen (Willie) Koop, and brothers Jacob (Marichen), Ervin (Hilda), Hermann (Irma) and Ernst (Erika).  Gone before him are also his parents in law, Jacob & Catarina Kasdorf, and brother in law, Arnie Kasdorf.

He is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Anelise; his brothers, Bruno (Anneliese), Hans (Serena), and Heiny; his children and grandchildren, Evelyn & JP, Abbie, Ethan and Caelan Friesen, and Angela and Rob, Kim, Ryan and Adam Schroeder.  Also left to mourn are his large extended family, and so many friends, who Ewald considered to be his family as well.

In 2012, Ewald was diagnosed with Lewy-Dementia Alzheimer’s.  As the disease progressed he moved into care first to the Royal Columbian Hospital and then into the care of the Salvation Army Buchanan Lodge.  All through this journey Dad held to his faith and joy in life.  He was surrounded with family and friends as he took his last breath and left his broken body to be with his Lord and Savior.

We would like to thank the nurses and doctors for their patient, gentle and loving care in these last months.  Their knowledge and genuine kindness are sincerely appreciated.

“But the time is coming – in fact, it is here – when you will be scattered, each one returning to his own home, leaving me alone.   Yet I will not be alone, for the Father is with me.  I have told you all this so that you will have peace of heart and mind.  Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows; but cheer up, for I have overcome the world” John 16:32-33
