Helen Wieler, age 86 went to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, February 5, 2018 at the Cypress Regional Hospital, Swift Current, SK. Helen was born on January 16, 1932 to Peter & Elizabeth Hildebrandt on the family farm near Wymark, SK, where she was raised in a large and loving family. She received her education at the Montford School. Helen met the love of her life and best friend, Bill Wieler, and they were married on August 21, 1955. Together, they worked tirelessly to build the family farm — living in a tiny trailer until their house was built. Helen was the epitome of a farm wife — during seeding and harvest she was on the field helping Bill, meanwhile raising four children.
After Bill’s passing in 1993, she continued to live on the farm she loved, and took an active role in running the farm together with her sons. Helen was an excellent gardener and took great pride in her work, always making sure each row was straight and evenly spaced. Many hours were spent planting, weeding, and harvesting the treasures of her garden. She was well known for her baking, especially the perfectly round and light buns she made every Saturday without fail. There were many enjoyable times visiting with family and friends, and especially with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Helen so looked forward to their visits, hugging and holding the younger ones on her lap as long as she was able. She enjoyed the annual vacations to the mountains, although she was often more interested in the pot of flowers outside a motel, instead of the beautiful scenery. Helen was a quiet, caring, and loving woman of great faith — praying unceasingly for each member of her family, whom she loved and cared for unconditionally. She listened to gospel music, watched many Christian programs, meticulously writing down each Scripture, and reading from Bill’s well-worn Bible. Although Helen struggled with health problems in her later years, she never gave up or waivered in her faith.
Helen is survived by her children, Dennis Wieler, Ron Wieler, Darlene (John) Mitchell-Lech, and Leann Wieler; her grandchildren, Terry (Tanya) Mitchell and Chris (Heather) Mitchell; her great grandchildren, Shana, Ethan, Brady, Tessa, and Jaxson; her siblings, John (Joyce) Hildebrandt, Isaac Hildebrand, and Justina (George) Antal; her brother and sisters-in-law, Tiena Hildebrand, Mary (Hildebrandt) Martens, Susie Wieler, Frieda Peters, Tena Peters, Dave Peters, and Betty Hildebrandt; and by many nieces and nephews. Helen was predeceased by her husband of 38 years, Bill Wieler; her parents, Peter & Elizabeth Hildebrandt; and by her siblings, Eva Hildebrandt, Peter Hildebrand, Henry Hildebrandt, Mary Wieler, Elizabeth Bennett, and Jake Hildebrandt.
The Funeral Service for Helen Wieler was held on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 3:00 pm from Trailview Alliance Church, Swift Current, SK with Pastor Mike Smart officiating. “How Great Thou Art” and “I’m a Child of the King” were sung by the congregation, with Talita Hildebrand serving as pianist.
