I recently came across a name UZIEL Fible & his wife in Yizkor book of
Wislica.Until now I concentrated in Sephardic path now I ask from
Genners that can help in this matter.

Fible looks to me like a rendering of Feivel. If so, you might want to
check out UZIEL together with the given names Uri (Hebrew) and Shraga
(Aramaic), both of which are frequently associated with Feivel. Uri,
Shraga, and Phoebus (of which Feivish and Feivel are yiddishized
corruptions) all mean basically "bright", "shining", "light", etc.
