Mom was born in Saskatchewan, where she spent her younger years experiencing the dirty 30’s, her family moved to LaCrete in the Peace River area for a short period before moving to the Gladstone area in Manitoba. Mom met Phillip Wiesbrot while working as an assistant for Phillip’s Mom on their farm. They married February 12th, 1944 and moved to a farm near Neepawa, Manitoba where they raised their family. Later on, Mom worked in the health care field as a Nursing Assistant at the Neepawa Hospital. After they sold their farm they moved to Abbotsford, BC for a short stay and then finally moving to Portage La Prairie, MB where Mom continued her nursing career until retirement. Mom then moved to High River, AB in February 2011 to be closer to family. Mom enjoyed sewing, music and singing and raising her family – she always enjoyed church fellowship and believed in her Creator.
