Recently there was an article in the paper about three individuals, a church and a water district that were honored for their excellence by the Woodbridge Municipal Advisory Council (WMAC). There is another individual in Woodbridge who needs to be acknowledged for her unprecedented dedication and generosity to this community. That person is Faye Comer.

Faye and her husband, Jack (now deceased), moved to Woodbridge in 1941. She knows the history of the area and enjoys sharing stories of the early days. However, it is Faye's contributions to this city that are remarkable. For example, she co-chaired the first pancake breakfast for the Woodbridge Fire Department and continued in this capacity for several years. She was also co-chairman for the first cleanup in old town Woodbridge. Woodbridge Park would not have been built without her support. In addition, she was the first member of WMAC and served on that board for four years. Yet that group has not honored her for her excellence.

Faye continues to live in Woodbridge and is an advocate for this community. Her daughter, son-in-law and one grandson also reside in the city. Another grandson is a lieutenant for the Woodbridge Fire Department. Her family shares her dedication. It is her legacy.

Thank you, Faye Comer. The city of Woodbridge is a better place because of you.
