Dorothy Stebbings Wieb

Dorothy Wieb, born in 1927 at Winnipeg, is the only child of Walter and Ethel Stebbings. She received her elementary and secondary education in Winnipeg.

Before her marriage, she was employed in Winnipeg by the Credit Clearing Bureau (one year) and at the City Hall. In 1947, she married Earl Daniel Wieb of Winnipeg and continued to work at the City Hall until shortly before the birth of her first child.

Dorothy and Dan Wieb's children are Linda (1949), Karen (1952), Tommy (1956 deceased 1964), Allen (1956), and Kent (1959).

The Wieb family lived in Abilene, Texas, for three years (1952-55) while Dan Wieb was attending university, and then in Winnipeg another six years (1955-61) where Dan preached for the Sherbrook congregation.

At Western Christian College, Dorothy taught home economics (1961-67), served as assistant librarian (1968-69, 1974-75), as assistant dean of Torkelson Hall (1965-69), and dean of College Hall (1969-73).

In Winnipeg Dorothy had conducted a Friday night craft and Bible class for the girls of the neighbourhood. The class had an enrolment of 20 girls. She has taught children's Bible classes at both Winnipeg and Weyburn, assisted with summer camps at Dauphin, Horse Creek, and Kenosee, delivered Meals-on-Wheels, and has been the "Hi Neighbour" lady in Weyburn for the past two years. She is an active member of the Weyburn Special Care Home Auxiliary. During her years of membership, she has served both as treasurer and as president of the organization.

Dan and Dorothy Wieb have conducted a special seminar entitled, "Hanging In, Hanging On or Just Hanging Around" at Estes Park, Colorado, and at Kenosee Lake.

When her husband received his honourary Doctor of Laws degree in 1985 from Abilene Christian University, Dorothy Wieb was presented with a Certificate of Distinction in honour of her faithful support of her husband and her work in Christian education.

In 1989, Dorothy received a plaque of "Thanks" for transporting a group of Seniors (The Combo Bowlers) weekly to the bowling alley.

Life at Western Christian College has been both pleasurable and beneficial to Dorothy Wieb. She enjoyed her contact with the students. She trusts that some students have been pointed in the right direction because of her influence. She has made life-long friends from among both staff and students. And finally, life at the college has taught her that the pursuit of materialism is a barren goal and has taught her children the same valuable lesson.
