|Tony and Ofa Schimmer|
Tony and Ofa were fellowshipped very well in a Dinner Group with the Pettits, Nobles, Reeders and many others. When Kathleene turned eight years-old Tony was baptized on the same day by his father-in-law and about a year later he started smoking again, so it was hard to attend Church because he was afraid people would know he was smoking. In about 1967 Bishop Glen Carpenter began working with Tony, and this time he stopped smoking for good. Ofa and Tony were sealed in the Los Angles Temple in Dec. 1967. Sara (age 15) and Kathleene (age 19) were sealed to them. That sealing was an ordinance that Kathleene and Ofa and I'm sure Ofa's parents and many others had prayed for for many years. What a blessing! Ofa's hobbies included sewing and crafts. She was a wonderful Primary Transportation Chairman making sure all the children who wanted to come to Primary had transportation to get there. Primary was held during the week.
After Kathy (Kathleene) left for BYU, Ofa was Relief Society President for a year or more. Ofa and Tony moved to Orem, Utah during the Summer of 1976 after living in Westchester near LAX where Tony worked. When they moved to Orem they bought a home in the same ward as Donna Black Pearson and her second husband.
