text of obituary:


Huldah J. Wiebe was born in 1905 at Medford, Okla. where she lived until 1941. She was the daughter of Frank W. and Susanna (Janzen) Wiebe, both of whom preceded her in death. Her immediate survivors are: Pauline of Newton, Kan., Martha of Wichita, Kan., and Anna of Medford.

At an early age she was baptized and accepted as a member of the Medford Mennonite Church.

Huldah was a graduate of Medford High School and was employed by Drennan law firm for a number of years, after which she began her government service with the Farmers Home Administration in Medford.

In 1941 she moved to Washington, D. C., where she continued her government service at the Pentagon with the U. S. Air Force communications operations division. She recently completed 26 years of service. On numerous occasions she received outstanding performance and incentive awards for exceptional achievements.

She enjoyed excellent health until about six months ago when she became ill and entered National Orthaepedic [sic Orthopedic] Hospital in Arlington, Va., and after two weeks was transferred to Doctors Hospital in Washington, D. C. On July 23 she was released from the hospital to go to the Garringer residence where she passed away suddenly on Aug. 7, 1966.

Funeral services were held Aug. 10, 1966 in Hills Chapel, Medford, with Rev. David C. Wedel of Southwestern College, Winfield, Kan., and Rev. Albert J. Unruh of Enid officiating. Burial was in the Mennonite cemetery.
