I met Redell when she started working at the Family History Center and admired her knowledge and kindness the she showed to everyone. She taught many classes at the FHC Inservice and I was always amazed how she could give an hour class from things she learned while attending a seminar in Salt Lake City, with out looking at her notes!! She taught a class at inservice on her 90th birthday. What an inspiration she always will be.

Redell was a good friend. I've only known her since 2005 when we moved to Pueblo. (And I missed her when see went to live with her daughter.) She got me interested in Family History, not only the research of our ancestry but that we all have stories of our own. I'm thankful to have had her in my life. I will look forward to seeing her again when it's my turn to be called home.

I am sorry to hear of Redell's passing. She was a delightful sister and wonderful friend. I am grateful for the opportunity I had to get to know her when I lived in Pueblo and for the example of service she was to me. I know she is enjoying her family on the other side of the veil.
