Valjean Margaret Wilhelmi Wiebke was born August 29, 1929 in LeMars, Iowa, daughter of Leo Wilhelmi and Alma Dierckson.
Valjean was born and raised in LeMars, Iowa. She attended LeMars Central High School and graduated in 1947. She had a variety of jobs, then married and raised five children. She was a good and happy soul who laughed easily and often.
A former homecoming queen turned farmwife, Valjean had a flair for making people feel very comfortable. As many visitors frequented the Wiebke household throughout the years, visitors reveled in the assorted chocolates available, the bottomless coffee pot, and an occasional Pringle. Her grandchildren named her the “Candy Grandma”.
Her children’s involvement with school activities was top priority to her, from Kindergarten programs to college events. She made every effort attend to all of them.
Valjeans love of life and laughter were contagious. The simpler the better for her, for example, she would name all of her dogs “Pepper”
To Mom, wherever she was “Life was good”
Valjean was preceded in death by her parents, son Andrew Joseph Wiebke of Remsen, Iowa, and daughter Carole Jean Wiebke Morio of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Valjean is survived by son David Wiebke and wife Jeanne of Remsen, Iowa, son Richard Wiebke and wife Gail of Ames, Iowa, daughter Mary Cromer and husband Dan of Cleveland, Missouri. Five grandchildren, Kendra and Jeran Wiebke, Christian Cromer, Krysten Kroymann and Tyson Morio. Six great grandchildren, Brynnlin, Caleb, Aubry, Delaney, Luke and Jack.
