    • Obituary

      The Rev. Dr. Barbara Warren McCall, a pioneering clergy woman in the United Church of Christ, died October 26, 2007, at Pilgrim Place retirement community in Claremont, California. She was 93.
      She was born in Holden, Massachusetts, in 1914, the first child of William H. Warren and Edith Brierly Warren. She graduated from Mt. Holyoke College in 1935 and studied at the Chicago Theological Seminary. Barbara and her late husband, the Rev. Dr. Clarence Field McCall, Jr., were ordained together in the Congregational Church of Roundup, Montana, in 1938. They served briefly as co-pastors there. Then, for many years she focused on raising their four children, supporting her husband's ministries, and leading workshops and training events. At the time of his death in 1967, "Mac" McCall was UCC Conference Minister for Southern California. Entering a dramatically new chapter, Barbara was called as interim Associate Minister of the First United Church of Oak Park, Illinois. The following year she joined the staff of the UCC Council for Lay Life and Work based in New York City, and consulted with churches and conferences in the New England region.
      In 1972 she was appointed special assistant to UCC President Robert Moss as executive for the Task Force on Women in Church and Society. The Task Force report to the 1973 General Synod addressed the urgent need for the church at all levels to actively empower women both in ordained and lay roles. It advocated the adoption of inclusive language, identified systemic points of resistance, and led to the formation of the national Coordinating Center for Women in Church and Society. Later that year Barbara was named UCC editor of A.D. Magazine, and remained in that role until it ceased publication in 1975. She was a pastoral therapist in private practice in Concord, Massachusetts for several years until retiring to Pilgrim Place in Claremont, California, in 1982.
      Barbara's contributions to the Church were recognized in 1973 when she was awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from the Chicago Theological Seminary; and again in 1987 when she received the national Antoinette Brown Award for outstanding leadership by a woman within the United Church of Christ.
      She is survived by her daughter, (Dr.) Judith Brierly Campbell and her husband Bruce Suttle of Urbana, Illinois; three sons (the Rev.) Merritt C. McCall and his wife Carolyn of Portland, Oregon; (the Rev. Dr.) Robert M. McCall and his wife Rebecca of Blue Hill, Maine; and (the Rev. Dr.) John B. McCall and his wife Andrea of South Portland, Maine. Other survivors include her two brothers, Henry W. Warren and his wife Mary of Aurora, Colorado, and William H. Warren and his wife Caroline of New Haven, Vermont; grandchildren and great grandchildren.
      There will be a memorial service at Pilgrim Place in Claremont, California, in early December. Family and friends will also gather after Memorial Day in the Warren Chapel of the First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, Holden, Massachusetts. Burial will be in the Grove Cemetery, Holden, at that time.
      Gifts in Barbara's memory may be made to the United Church of Christ, Women's Ministries, 700 Prospect Avenue East, Cleveland, Ohio, 44115-1100; to Pilgrim Place, 660 Avery Rd. Claremont, California, 91711; or the charity of choice.
