Dec. 25, 1935-June 11, 2018

Katherine (Tina) Wiebe, after a brief illness, peacefully, surrounded by family, passed away on Monday, June 11, 2018, aged 82.

Tina leaves behind her two sisters, Mary (Gockel) and Anna; brother, John; sister-in-law, Marie; nine nieces and nephews and their children; and numerous cousins.

She was predeceased by her parents, four brothers and a brother-in-law.

Tina was born on Dec. 25, 1935 in the Ukraine and immigrated with her mother and five siblings to Canada in May 1948. Her early years in Canada were spent in Steinbach before moving to Winnipeg. Upon arriving in Winnipeg, she was employed with Globe Envelopes and for the City of Winnipeg Social Services for many years. Her recent ill health precluded her joining a family celebration marking 70 years in Canada.

Tina accepted Christ as her Saviour at the age of 16. Her faith and belief were very important to her. Tina was a member of Steinbach EMC and had a keen interest in the lives of her extended family and corresponded with family and friends throughout North America and Germany.

Tina enjoyed knitting, reading and visiting her friends, many of whom she had known for over 50 years, including Irene, Josie, and Katie.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the St Boniface emergency and intensive care unit and the Winnipeg Fire and Paramedic Services, and especially the kind stranger who performed CPR.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mennonite Central Committee or Heart & Stroke Foundation.
