February 5, 1923 – January 20, 2020
Reuben Edward Giebelhaus of Rimbey, Alberta went to be with his Lord and Saviour on Monday, January 20, 2020, just shy of 97 years. Reuben was born at home on February 5, 1923 to John A. and Elizabeth (Miller) Giebelhaus of the Martins District near Vegreville and Holden, Alberta. He passed away quietly at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre.
Memories will be cherished by his loving wife, Elsie (Fried); and five children: Carolyn Parker, Glen, Rodney, Rowena Hoeve, and Dale; and their spouses, grandchildren, and great grandchildren; as well as his siblings: Ruth, Dorothy, Earl, and Lorraine; and numerous nieces, nephews, and many friends. Reuben was a hard-working, industrious, God-loving man who adapted throughout his journey, creating quite a story.
A Funeral Service Celebration of Reuben’s Life will be held at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre, Rimbey on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at 1:30 p.m. with Pastor Grant Rainey officiating. A Private Family Interment will precede the service in the West Haven Cemetery, Rimbey.
