Sister Ewell was born in Oakland, California and moved to Detroit, Michigan when she was very young and lived there until she was in the 6th grade. Her father died when she was 8 years old so her mother decided to move the family back to Las Vegas where she grew up.
She graduated from Rancho High School and after waiting for her missionary was married in the St. George Temple. She and Larry are the parents of 8 children; 6 girls and two boys. They have 39 grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren.
She has been teaching early morning seminary for the last 44 years and loves it. She also teaches two Adult Religion classes.
She and her husband started Latter Day Tours and they take bus loads of youth every year to the church history sites and have for the last 35 years.
She says that the most exciting thing she has ever done was dress up in a modest Wonder Woman outfit and go out to the International Hotel and get on the game show "Let's Make A Deal". She was one of the audience members chosen by Monty Hall and ended up winning $1200. They used the money to take their children back east to the church history sites.
On November 25th of 2009 (12 years ago) she lost the love of her life in death, which she says is the hardest trial she’s been through. Her huge family is a great source of joy and peace since his passing.
She lives in the Las Vegas Redrock Stake in the Palo Verde Ward and her motto is “Murmur Not”
