Marjorie McDermott Wiebe

November 21, 1929 — April 5, 2022

Marjorie "Marj" McDermott Wiebe was born on November 21, 1929 in Saranac Lake, New York to John J. and Pearl (Sweeney) McDermott. She lived there until the deaths of her parents, at which time she moved to Washington, DC, where she lived with her guardians, Cortland and Elizabeth Cole. Marj graduated from Eastern High School in Washington, and attended Syracuse University, where she was a proud member of Delta Delta Delta. While at Syracuse she met William Cool Wiebe, and they married on June 24, 1950. Marj and Bill lived in Summit, New Jersey for more than 30 years, raising three sons and several dachshunds. Marj held several part-time jobs and many volunteer commitments, and could often be found in the bleachers of various fields and pools, cheering on her sons as they competed. Upon Bill's retirement they followed their love of skiing and lakes to Wolfeboro Falls, New Hampshire, where they built a home on Crescent Lake. They were active in the Wolfeboro Community for more than 20 years. Marj was a member of First Congregational Church, Wolfeboro Garden Club, PEO, and a rug-hooking group. She has lived at the Taylor Community in Laconia for several years. Bill Wiebe died in 2018, and Marj is survived by three sons - John (Joyce) Wiebe of Glenburn, Maine, Tom (Lori Murray) Wiebe of Asbury, New Jersey, Chuck (Anne Millar) Wiebe, of Shelburne, Vermont; six grandchildren - Kate (Nick) Bergmann, Molly (Robert Rhee) Wiebe, Travis Wiebe, Lindsay (Nate) Wagenhoffer, Kit (David) Cahill, Sally Wiebe; and five great-grandchildren - Lola, Harper, and Percy Bergmann, Nellie Wagenhoffer, and Atticus Wiebe Rhee. A memorial gathering will be held at a later date. The Baker-Gagne Funeral Home and Cremation Service is assisting the family with the arrangements.
