Rhea Linsenmeyer peacefully passed away at age 92 on November 26, 2011. A third generation Phoenician, Rhea witnessed Phoenix grow from a small town to the sixth largest city in the U.S. As a child, she lived in a house that her father built. As an adult, she worked as a secretary for Phoenix’s only movie theater, the Orpheum, and shopped in its first shopping center, Park Central. She graduated from Phoenix Union High School and enjoyed many reunions with fellow classmates. She was married to Howard Linsenmeyer, now deceased, for over 50 years. As an avid sports fan, her TV rarely wandered to non- sports channels. And until she turned 60, she was an excellent and competitive tennis player. Her interests also included: volunteering for others with: St. Joseph Hospital’s Auxiliary, the Girl Scouts, St. Gregory Elementary School and the St. Vincent DePaul Society. She will be missed and remembered by her daughters: Cheryl Smith and Jeanine Linsenmeyer; her grandchildren Ben Linsenmeyer and Shannon Smith Sams (Brian). Her sister Melba Provence Ortman; sister-in-law Bertha (Tiny) Lutfy, nieces and nephews: Ben Provence (Brenda), Roy Provence (Sandy) Pat Blair (Craig), Fred Provence, (Claudia), Jim Hebets (Carol,), Kathy Bowen, Dick Hebets (Gail), and Bruce Hebets (Karen). Other related family include: Suzy Hausner, John Hausner, Glenn A. Smith Jr., Doris Doss and Bertha Bower, a life-long friend. A Funeral Mass will be held at 1:00pm, Wednesday, November 30, 2011 at Our Lady of Angels Conventual Church at the Franciscan Renewal Center, 5802 E. Lincoln Drive, Scottsdale.

Condolences for the family of “LINSENMEYER, RHEA S.”

Condolence from John & Bonnie Furlong on November 30th, 2011 5:22 pm

We are so sorry we missed the notice in the paper yesterday. We certainly would have attended the service today. The Linsenmeyers were our neighbors from 1946-1985- both on 16th Avenue and Pinchot Avenue. My parents were Margaret and Bill Ehlers. They even built new houses across the street from each other in 1953. We (especially my parents) depended on each other in times of need and times of fellowship. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family as you miss your mothers and as you cherish her memories.
Bonnie (Ehlers) and John Furlong

Condolence from G.Ford on December 1st, 2011 5:27 am

I am so sorry for your loss. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God’s Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.
