In Memoriam: Sandra Moore

Monday, September 19th, 2011

OGS and Toronto Branch are sad to announce the passing of Sandra Moore.

Sandra passed away on Saturday September 17, 2011 after a long illness.

Sandra was one of the Top 50 in 50 which Toronto Branch and OGS recognized this year.  

Sandra’s contributions to Toronto Branch extend back almost 30 years. She has served as Chair of Toronto Branch, co-author of the first edition of the Branch’s Policies & Procedures Manual and Branch librarian long before our collection had been subsumed by the OGS Library housed in the Canadiana Room at North York Central Library. She also worked extensively on various projects, including the Cemeteries Committee, for which she input the first Branch transcriptions into the computer.

Lately, Sandra has been known as the indefatigable leader of the Branch’s Places of Worship Committee. Through the dedication of Sandra, and other volunteers, the Places of Worship Committee has coordinated the transcribing and indexing of the many registers and records housed in the United Church Archives and in other churches and organizations.

Visitation and funeral arrangements are available here.
