The Auxiliary has lost another amazing and kind woman this year. Phyllis Williams, Past President and Past Secretary of the VSFA Auxiliary. Phyllis passed away on August 23, 2019.
Phyllis has served with the Christiansburg Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary and the Auxiliary to the Virginia State Firefighter's Association for over 40 years. She was the Secretary for the State Auxiliary for 25 years.
Phyllis was an amazing woman who was a mentor to many of us as we were all considered family to her. This is a loss to the Christiansburg Community, the State Auxiliary and she has left a special place in our hearts.
Please continue to keep her family and the Christiansburg Fire Department and Auxiliary in your prayers.
