In Memory of Gwen (Miller) Foster: 1925-2014

Friday, July 11, 2014

It is with sad hearts that we share the news of Gwenville Foster’s passing. Gwen Miller, as she was known by the Tyndale family, was Head Librarian and a member of the Ontario Bible College (OBC) faculty from 1971 to 1981, and cataloguer from 1981 to 1987.

Gwen received her Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Library Science (BLS) degrees from the University of Toronto. Before beginning her time at OBC, Gwen worked at the Toronto Public Library and, for 14 years, served on the library staff at the College of Education, University of Toronto.

At OBC, she was a part of the Learning Resources Committee. Gwen was instrumental in the library’s move to the Ballyconnor campus in 1976 and she helped improve the collection to meet accreditation standards in those early years.

Gwen went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, July 2 at the age of 89. She will be missed by her family and many friends.
