Delbert Gene Wiebe

Delbert’s life began on November 24, 1934, in Arkansas City, KS. He is the son of Jacob and Agatha (Epp) Wiebe, and a twin brother to Delmer Wiebe. Delbert was a lifelong area resident of Whitewater, KS and graduated from Berean Academy in 1954. After high school he went on to farm and bale hay before he began volunteering overseas with the PAX organization, doing road construction in Paraguay. When he returned to the States, he began dairy farming where he owned and operated Oaklawn Vue Dairy. Delbert married Hazel Marie (Chapple) on November 03, 1959, at Emmaus Church outside of Whitewater, KS. 

When Delbert wasn’t busy working on the farm, he loved woodworking, landscaping and lawn care. He was a Sound Tech Volunteer at the Emmaus Church and was part of Gideons International for twenty years. Many would say Delbert never met a stranger. Delbert loved his tractors and was very competitive in Tractor Pulls, attending competitions in Newton, Whitewater, and Halstead, earning many trophies over the years.

Most of all, Delbert enjoyed being with his loving family. He is survived by his wife Hazel, Whitewater, KS children, Delwin Wiebe, Illinois, Lorene (Phil) Lohrenz, Burrton, KS, Marilyn (Alan) Mueller, Halstead, KS,  Karen (Ron) Colbert, Hesston, KS,  Daniel (Kerry) Wiebe, Whitewater, KS,  Marlene (David) Wiens, Hesston, KS,  grandchildren, Matthew Wiebe, Joshua Wiebe, Elijah (Sydney) Wiebe, Corey (Kelsey) Lohrenz, Jason (Lauren) Mueller, Natalia (Nick) Lee, Taryn (Matthew) Hauck, Kenton Wiebe, Tiana Wiebe, Kyler Wiebe, five great-grandchildren, twin brother, Delmer Wiebe, Newton, and many nieces and nephews.

Delbert, at the age of 87, entered the gates of Heaven on Friday April 08, 2022, and was reunited with his parents, Jacob and Agatha Wiebe, sister-in-law, Eleanor Wiebe and grandchildren, Melissa Clarkson and Makayla Mueller. His family will gather with friends on Monday, April 11, 2022, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Emmaus Church, Whitewater, KS. His funeral service will be held on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. at Emmaus Church, with burial to follow at Emmaus Cemetery. Memorial contributions in Delbert’s name may be directed to Che Roga camp – Paraguay Camp.  Please sign his online guestbook and leave a memory of Delbert at www.yazelmeglifh.com.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. I knew both Delbert and Delmer from working in car part sales in Newton for years. I enjoyed their visits to the store. They would always visit for a few minutes and get a cup of coffee or two, and one to go!

I remember your Dad very well when he sang in the farmers quartet.

They would come and sing on Sundays at the Bethel Home .

May your father rest in peace ; he has gone on to glory to his reward.

Precious in the sight of the Lord, is the death of his saints.

Many blessings and sympathy to the family.
