Wife of Dr. Arthur John Wiebe
Fresno Bee - Fresno, California
March 6, 2008:
Evelyn Mae Wiebe was born to Peter and Elizabeth Fischer on November 26, 1920, in her parent's home near Corn, Oklahoma. Her Heavenly Father took her into his presence on Saturday morning, March 1, 2008. She was 87 years old.
Evelyn grew up on a farm. She attended a small rural elementary school and graduated from Corn Bible Academy. It was there that she met Arthur, her future husband. Their romance blossomed and three years later they were married on August 24, 1941. Their wonderful and eventful marriage spanned 66 years.
Evelyn was noted for the quality of her pies, cakes, and tasty meals. She always added a huge dose of love when she applied these skills in preparing meals for the family, students away at college, or friends in need. She never sought the limelight. However, if you were to scratch the surface of much of what her husband was involved in as president of Pacific College and the AIMS Foundation, you would find her fingerprints. She was deeply loved by many.
Evelyn is survived by her husband Arthur; daughter Ann of Reedley; son Richard and his wife Billie Jean of Clovis; sister, Martha Heidebrecht of Bethany, Oklahoma; sister-in-law, Martha Fischer of Eureka, California; and many relatives and friends.
Visitation was at Stephens & Bean Chapel on Wednesday, March 5, 2008, from 2:00 to 7:00 p.m. A Graveside Service for Evelyn will be at Belmont Memorial Park on Thursday, March 6, 2008, at 9:30 a.m. A Memorial Service will be held at the Butler Mennonite Brethren Church on Thursday, March 6, 2008, at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Evelyn Wiebe Scholarship Fund, in care of Fresno Pacific University, 1717 S. Chestnut Ave., Fresno, Ca. 93702.
