In Memoriam

Mahlon Macy

The university's first seminary graduate has died. Mahlon Macy, who graduated as a class of one, received his degree in 1949 from Western Evangelical Seminary (now George Fox Evangelical Seminary). He was 88 at the time of his death March 10 in Newberg. A 1944 Pacific College (now George Fox) graduate, Macy, a retired pastor, was named the seminary's Alumnus of the Year in 2003. Macy was one of two seminary alumni honors recipients to pass away in March.

Dorothy Barratt

Longtime university board member Dorothy Barratt, a 1957 seminary graduate who earned a master of divinity degree and was named seminary Alumna of the Year in 1985, died March 27, also in Newberg. A 1949 Pacific College graduate, she was awarded the university's top alumni honor in 1990. She served on the board of trustees from 1977 to 1993, then was awarded honorary trustee status.

Barratt was a recorded Friends pastor with the Northwest Yearly Meeting who helped build Christian education ministries in Friends churches throughout the United States. For many years, she was general editor of Adult Friend, a quarterly publication for Sunday school classes, and for 39 years she was a member of the Christian Education Board of Northwest Yearly Meeting.

Macy, a Friends minister, served pastorates in Oregon, California, Washington, Nebraska and Texas. For nine years (1973-82), he was superintendent of Iowa Yearly Meeting of Friends. He also did interdenominational work with the National Association of Evangelicals, including eight years at the NAE national office in Wheaton, Ill., serving as regional director, field director and later director of development. After retiring from 45 years of active ministry and moving to Newberg in 1987, he continued to assist as the interim pastor of North Valley Friends Church, interim executive director of Friendsview Manor, consultant to Rocky Mountain Yearly Meeting and volunteer chaplain at Newberg Providence Hospital.
