Br Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B. , President of Saint Vincent College, issued the following statement following the death of Dr. JoAnne Boyle on Nov. 1:
On behalf of the students, faculty, staff and Benedictine Community of Saint Vincent, I express my deepest sympathies to the family, friends and colleagues of Dr. JoAnne Boyle, president emerita of Seton Hill University. JoAnne was a great teacher, an extraordinary leader and a dear friend who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. I want to especially extend condolences to her husband, Arthur, SVC’56, and their seven children. JoAnne’s impact on Seton Hill’s students, on the growth and development of the university, and on the Westmoreland County community will endure forever.
