Eileen S. Reimschussel of Roy celebrated her 90th birthday at a family luncheon.
She was born Nov. 17, 1922, in Baker, Ore., to Charles Lewis and Julia Larson Shurtliff. She attended schools in Price and Provo, graduating from Brigham Young University in 1944 with a degree in secondary education and a minor in music.
She married George C. Reimschussel in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Salt Lake Temple on Feb. 2, 1944. She says that they had a wonderful married life until he died in 1989, on their 45th wedding anniversary.
Her interests are her family, home, music and the arts. She has served on various committees in the arts and as PTA president. She taught music in the Provo School District and was a dental assistant for her husband, who was the first dentist in Roy. She was also president of Weber County and Utah state dental auxiliaries. She says that the joy of her life has been her family and the music that was in her home.
Active in the LDS Church, she served in ward and stake callings in the Relief Society as teacher, counselor and president in the Roy 4th/5th wards and in the Roy Stake Relief Society presidency. She also directed many choruses and choirs within the church. She was an ordinance worker in the Ogden LDS Temple for 15 years, and she enjoyed her time there.
Her children and their spouses are Ronald and Peggy Reimschussel, Juleen and David Boothe, Paul and LaRae Reimschussel, and Janette and Gregory Duffin. She has 15 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren with two on the way.
