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.
