Memorable Manitobans: Henrich Wiebe (1839-1897)

Farmer, church leader, pioneer.

Born at Schoenthal, Russia on 28 September 1839, he was selected in 1873 as one of two Bergthal representatives to an eleven-member Mennonite delegation to America to negotiate emigration to the United States and Canada. In 1874, Wiebe arrived in Manitoba and promptly helped to stabilize a discouraged Mennonite community there. He continued to served the Mennonite community as a leader and minister, supporting emigration, higher education, Sunday Schools and mission work. He died at Edenburg, Manitoba on 30 January 1897.
