Passing of Joyce Herman
By President John Sly
May 4, 2020

On Monday, May 4th, 2020 Mrs. Joyce Herman passed away at age 91. Mrs. Herman was the wife of Past Chief Richard Herman who served the Company as Fire Chief from 1961-1973 and was a mentor to many of the younger generations of firefighters.

For those who do not understand the sacrifices made by the wives and families of our Fire Chiefs, Mrs. Herman could still often be found assisting and supporting many of the fire company's events; including our long-running Bingo games at which she was a faithful attendee.

She was employed as a seamstress by the former PattiTone Dress Company in Gap, retiring in 1990 and was a nearly lifelong resident of Westwood.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 situation, we were unable to express our sympathy in the traditional manner we provide to our long-time supporters of the Fire Company.

Our thoughts are with her daughter and family during this difficult time.
