Sister Risenmay was born in Roosevelt, Utah and served with her husband in the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission.  She is a former Relief Society President, Young Women President, Primary President, and has served in a variety of other church callings.

President Risenmay was previously an owner in an insurance agency.  He is an avid reader and enjoys history in addition to Gospel learning.  He likes to work in the yard and has created many beautiful landscaping projects at their home in Washington State.

Sister Risenmay worked in President Risenmay's insurance agency before they came to SLC.  Previous to that, she was a legal secretary but spent most of her life rearing their family.  She likes to read, sew and garden.

For both of them the most important things in their lives are their family and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
