My sincere condolences to the family and friends, so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God will soon resurrect our dear loved ones (John 5:28-29). Oh how we long for the day when pain, suffering and death will be no more, these former things will have passed away (Revelation 21:3-5).

Rhea was a sweet lady. I have considered her a friend since my high school days. (Class of 1965 in Mountain View). I have always enjoyed bumping into her in Rock Springs, Evanston and Mountain View where we would share our experiences for a few minutes.

Our condolences to the family! There is never a good time to leave this life. She will be missed.

Rhea was one who started my love of genealogy way back when I was in MIA. She taught a class in the Evanston Second Ward which I enjoyed. Years later I met up with her when she moved to Evanston from Mountain View and transferred into our Daughters of Utah Pioneers Camp. She really enjoyed history and attending our meetings. She will be fondly remembered, but not forgotten. Sincere condolences to all of her family.
