The First Presidency recently called John K. and Janell B. Pallin to serve as the temple president and temple matron of the Toronto Ontario Temple.
President Pallin was called after the former temple president, Gordon Keith Macmichael, passed away on November 28 at the age of 71.
Prior to his new calling, President Pallin served as the first counselor in the Toronto Ontario Temple presidency as well as a high councilor, stake mission president, bishop’s counselor, and high priests group leader. A native of Toronto, Ontario, President Pallin worked as the director of network provisioning for Bell Canada before retiring, according to lds.org.
Sister Pallin, who will succeed Sister Judith K. Macmichael as temple matron, served as assistant to the matron at the Toronto Ontario Temple before her new calling. A native of Oakland, California, Sister Pallin has also served as a seminary teacher, counselor in stake Relief Society and Young Women presidencies, and ward Young Women president.
