Lisa Schnebly Heidinger has recreated her great-grandmother’s journal from interviews of Sedona Schnebly’s adult children and researching census records and family archives. Reading excerpts from “The Journal of Sedona Schnebly”, Lisa breathes life into a deeply reserved person whose independence and faith informed her decisions. This is decades of work skillfully woven into a story that answers hundreds of questions about Sedona’s founding mother.
Ms. Heidinger has been collecting and sharing Arizona stories for decades. Beginning as a cub reporter for the Green Valley News, she interviewed Barry Goldwater and Rose Mofford, Arizona’s first female Governor. While a reporter for Flagstaff’s KTVK-TV-3 she reported on plane crashes, Grand Canyon issues, tribal politics and new breweries. After marrying Tom Heidinger she moved to Phoenix and began a Sunday op-ed column called Arizona Correspondent which ran for three years. Author of numerous books and articles, Heidinger was voted OneBookAZ author for the state centennial book.
