With great sadness, the family of Ed Wiebe announces his passing on June 3, 2021 at the Misericordia Hospital at the age of 79 years, due to Covid pneumonia. He was born September 26, 1941 in Carrot River, Saskatchewan to Henry and Katherine Wiebe. There they moved to Cranford, Southern Alberta where the entire family worked hoeing sugar beet fields. They resided in Coalhurst where his father, brother Stan, and himself worked to help build the airport in Claresholm. He worked a ‘mans’ job, and learned the work ethic that has been a part of his entire life, at a young age. He went to Northwest Bible College for 3 years where he met his first wife Betty. Upon graduating he pastored for 10 years in various places, and hosted a Sunday Gospel radio show in Lethbridge. He then progressed into self-employment as a barn painter then interior painting and home construction. Moving to Cowley with his family (that was then 4 kids), he went into road construction and after a number of years purchased an oilfield camp in Northern Alberta. During this time he met his second wife Corinne and they had 2 children together. They then moved to an acreage near Morinville. His last and most enjoyed work was the purchase of a farm and ranch in Northern BC. Although very busy he enjoyed telling stories, flying, driving his team of big boys, big parties, camping, riding his motor bike, playing the casino and eating ice-cream. He was a dynamic, hardworking provider, proud of his accomplishments and his family. He would talk to anyone with his toothpick hanging out of the side of his mouth and a bit of a frog in his throat. His umbrella was large and covered many people. Left to cherish his memory are his wife; Corinne St. Martin, children; Clifford (Leanne), Sheldon (Tammee), Lisa (Dale), Arden, and Kalita, grandchildren; Kerstin, Ashleen, Riley, Kimberlee, Josee, Chandler, Rachel, Jessica, Sasha, and Eric, great grandchildren; Henri, Sawyer, Lincoln, Haley, and Jaxx, brothers; Victor (Donna), Danny (Gail), and Fred (Elnora), sister; Maxine and numerous other relatives, co-workers and friends. Edwin was predeceased by his son; Wyatt, grandson; Alex, parents; Henry & Katherine, 3 sisters; Katherine, Violet, and Marianne, and brother; Stan.

We are very sorry to hear about the loss of Ed.

I was lucky enough to get to know Ed over the last 8 years and listen to him share the stories of his family whom he cherished above all.

Ed was never too busy to share a laugh and a good story. He was my very favorite client to visit as he treated me like a friend.

Much love to all the family,
Mike and the Monarch Insurance Brokers Team
