NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

It is easy to see how Debora Swatsworth Foster became the first female chair of the board of trustees of Westminster College, president Richard H. Dorman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

“The college was her second family, and she was enormously dedicated to its mission.”

Foster, who died on March 11 at age 60, was an alumna of the college, where she met her future husband, William Foster.

A resident of Upper St. Clair, she retired as vice president of corporate communications at the H.J. Heinz Co. in Pittsburgh in 2006.
