Today we send a special shout out to a woman who has made a remarkable and lasting contribution to LSC-Tomball Community Library and to our library community. Since 2005, when the library moved to our present location, Rhonda Brewer has hosted or supported the Sit ‘n’ Stitch Club that has met, sometimes once, sometimes twice a week in the library. In 2007 she started the Postcard Club that also continues meeting once a month.
For several years Rhonda was the Director of a local Family History Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. An avid and expert genealogist herself, Rhonda shared her skills by conducting a series of free genealogy searching courses here in the library. Anyone who has taken her Genealogy 101 or Genealogy 201 courses will attest to her skill as a teacher and her passion for the subject.
In July of this year, Rhonda and her husband Ron lent themselves out to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints headquarters in Salt Lake City, where they took up posts in the Natural Resources Management department, managing the mineral rights of Church properties in the U.S. and Canada.
Last week Rhonda and Ron returned to Houston, but only to pack up their house and arrange for its sale. They are moving permanently to Salt Lake City. As we lose you, Rhonda, may we thank you again for being one of the pillars of this library. We wish you and Ron every success and happiness in your years ahead in Salt Lake City. Farewell, good friend.
