Siebert, Johnny   4/18/1921 – 1/11/2018

Johnny was born April 18, 1921 to Henry and Maria (Friesen) Siebert on a farm in Hamilton County NE. Johnny was the second oldest of 10 children in the family, farming on two different farmsteads west of Henderson, NE. He graduated from Henderson High School in 1940. In 1941 Johnny moved with his parents and family to Luton, IA, where he farmed with them.

Johnny first learned the need of having a personal relationship with God during the summer tent evangelistic campaign in 1934, which resulted in him making a definite decision for salvation in Jesus Christ. He was then baptized in the Blue River south of Henderson and joined the Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Church in the summer of 1935.

Johnny married Anna (Isaac) on August 12, 1945. After farming near Luton, Iowa for one year, they moved to Omaha, NE where Johnny attended and graduated from Grace Bible Institute. Johnny & Anna raised 4 children: Lee, Cherry, Steve, and Loren.

In April of 1951, Johnny & Anna and their first two children sailed to Japan where they entered into missionary service where their two other children were born. Johnny & Anna served in a blessed, fruitful ministry for 38 years. They retired and moved to Lincoln, NE in 1989, celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary in 2005.

They moved to Skyline Retirement Community in Omaha in 2006, where Anna went to be with Lord in 2007. Johnny continued living in the various care levels at Skyline until his death January 11, 2018.

Johnny was preceded in death by his wife, Anna. He is survived by his children Lee (Cheryl), Portland, OR; Cherry (Gary) Warrick, Fort Calhoun, NE; Steve (Beverly) of Hasting-on-Hudson, NY; Loren of Portland, OR; 8 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; 4 siblings; and other family and friends.

Memorials may be given for the Ome Church and the Camp in Okutama Valley where Johnny & Anna lived and served while in Japan for 38 years.
