Since the organization of the Relief Society on March 17, 1842 the call for the women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to care for the needy, feed the poor, gain in spiritual stature and be the light in a world of darkness has been the organization’s constant mission.

From its small beginning in Nauvoo, Illinois to a current membership of 7.1 million women in more than 188 countries, women of the Relief Society, proclaimed by the church as the largest women’s organization in the world, continues to flourish.

While it is impossible to share the names and faces of many the women who have been influential in the church and left a mark on the world, a selected few might give a bigger picture of the women of the Relief Society.
