We are excited to announce the new instructors for this year. They will be Sister Rosemary Wixom, past General Primary President; Sister Bekah Ellsworth, Institute teacher at the U, and Cynthia Haller, our Stake Relief Society President. We are looking forward to their classes.
We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to Sister Nancy Baird and Diane Adair who have taught us for the past six years. They have spent countless hours preparing and teaching us and we are so grateful to them.
Rosemary Wixom was born just 5 minutes before her twin sister in Ogden, Utah. She considers being a twin to Roseann one of her greatest blessings. Her family later moved to Salt Lake City where she grew up in the East Millcreek area. After graduating from USU in Elementary Education and marrying Jack Wixom, they eventually settled in the Olympus Stake. It has been home for 35 wonderful years! Six children and 15 grandchildren have expanded their view. Serving a mission with Jack to the Washington DC South Mission and serving as General President of the Primary were stretching experiences “from Heaven”…… She says: “I’m just now beginning to see how much more I want to learn!”
She looks forward to doing just that in the Sisters In Scriptures class in Olympus Stake.
Rebekah grew up in California, Utah and Oregon and currently lives in the Olympus 2nd ward. She has two degrees from Brigham Young University and is an unabashed Cougar fan living within the shadow of the U. She served in the Chile, Santiago North mission from 2004 to 2005 and subsequently taught in the Provo MTC. She has also taught in the Northern Virginia and Salt Lake Institute programs for seven years. She enjoys photography, travel, the outdoors (especially all of the mountain sports!) and music. She loves teaching the gospel and is so excited to learn from the sisters of this stake!
Cynthia Covey Haller grew up in Provo and is the oldest of nine children. When she was five years old, she lived in Belfast, Ireland where her parents served a mission and she fell in love with the beautiful land and people there. Years later, Cynthia was called to the Ireland Dublin Mission, and when she returned home, married Kameron Haller, who was a fellow missionary in Ireland. They were married shortly after her return, and together they have raised six children in the Olympus stake. Cynthia graduated from Brigham Young University in History and enjoys writing, reading, traveling anywhere, skiing, biking,and watching her kids play sports. Cynthia loves being with her family above anything else and now has 10 adorable grandchildren who call her Ninny. She is currently serving as the stake Relief Society president and loves getting to know the wonderful sisters of the Olympus stake.
