McWILLIAM, Rev. Dr. Joanne E., M.A., PH.D., D.D.
Professor Emerita, the University of Toronto and Trinity College, Toronto, born December 10, 1928, died of cancer, nine years after the first diagnosis, on July 1, 2008. Cherished wife of C. Peter SLATER and beloved mother of Leslie GIRODAY (Philip,) Elizabeth DEWART (George McLAUCHLAN), Sean DEWART (Lori NEWTON), Gonzalo DUARTE, and grandmother of Gabrielle, Genevieve, James, Christopher, Alison, Karen, Geoffrey, Nora, George, Anne Marie, Joanna and Marc Francis. Fondly remembered stepmother of Lynne SLATER (Robert ARPIN), Ruth SLATER (Jim VIVIAN) and Claire SLATER (Ken RIDLEY). Joanne was the first woman to earn a doctorate in theology from Saint Michael's College, the first ordained woman to be tenured on the Faculty of Divinity at Trinity College, and the first woman holder of the chair in dogmatic theology at the General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church, U.S.A., in New York. She served terms as Chair of the Department for the Study of Religion in the University of Toronto and as president of the American Theological Society, the Canadian Theological Society and the Canadian Society for Patristic Studies. A longtime director of Advanced Degree Studies for the Toronto School of Theology, she was an internationally acknowledged expert on the theology of Saint Augustine, and always very highly rated as a teacher by generations of students in both arts and theology and by her family. Ordained in 1988, she was, with her husband, an honorary assistant at Christ Church Deer Park. She loved her books, her dogs, and her garden. The family wishes to thank Doctor Amrit OZA and staff at the Princess Margaret Hospital and those from the Mount Sinai Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care and related services, who made it possible for her to die at home. Visitation will be at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West (2 lights west of Yonge Street) on Sunday, July 6 from 3-5 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will take place at Christ Church Deer Park, 1570 Yonge Street (at Heath Street) on Monday, July 7 at 11 a.m. with reception to follow in the Parish Hall. Donations in her memory may be made to Médecins Sans Frontières or Street Haven.
