Carol Sawyer McCall, Lewis & Clark trustee since 2001, died unexpectedly on September 22.
For the last five years, McCall chaired the Campus Life Committee of the Board of Trustees. She also served the college in other capacities including on the Executive Committee and the Presidential Review Committee, "all with enthusiasm and skill," according to board chair Ronald Ragen.
McCall was tireless in her devotion to her family and in giving her time to civic affairs, where her involvements were wide and deep. She served on the boards of numerous Portland-based community organizations.
She and her husband, life trustee Robert McCall, met while traveling in Europe and were married for 47 years. They enjoyed traveling with their children and grandchildren, most recently on a float trip down the Salmon River.
Survivors in addition to her husband include two daughters, two sons, and 11 grandchildren.
