In memoriam: Moira Hill

Moira Hill died on July 10, following a courageous battle with cancer. Moira joined the team at the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society in 1998, after working for a time at the Centre on Aging. For eight years she served as CSRS’s senior secretary, a role she performed with expert competence and a deep sense of purpose and caring. Moira had personal warmth in abundance. All were welcomed and made to feel important. As the centre grew during this period and gained in reputation, so many faculty members, students and scholars across Canada and internationally came to associate the CSRS with the friendly and efficient service she provided. Moira took a special interest in the graduate students who held fellowships at the centre, always ready with a smile and a kind word to ease the hardships of graduate life. In recognition of this, the Moira Hill Graduate Student Book Prize was established in 2006, to be awarded each year to a graduate student fellow who makes an outstanding contribution to the life of the centre. Moira spent her final years at home in the care of her close and loving family, who were the great joy of her life. Memorial contributions to the Moira Hill Book Prize fund may be made care of the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society.
