Canadian Called as Visitor Centre Director
SALT LAKE CITY -- The First Presidency has issued calls to 10 brethren to
serve as new directors of various visitor centres and historic sites around
the United States. Edward Jones Johannesen, 66, of the Mount Vernon Washington Stake has been
called as the new director of the Joseph Smith Memorial Historic Site,
located in Vermont. Site offices are based out of South Royalton, while the
site itself is located about halfway between South Royalton and Sharon,
Joseph Smith's birthplace.
Currently serving as stake president of the Mount Vernon Washington Stake,
the Vancouver native has also served as a counsellor to a stake presidency
and as a bishop.
Married to Shirley Irene Sigurjonsson, formerly of Edmonton, the electrical
contractor is father to nine children. Sister Johannesen has served in
various stake and ward presidencies and currently serves as a gospel
doctrine teacher and seminary supervisor.
