Tribute To Phyllis Schlafly

September 5, 2016

Statement from Cindy Honcoop State Director of Washington Eagle Forum on the passing of Phyllis Schlafly:

"Today Phyllis Schlafly completed her calling here on earth, and is now safely with her Savior. She finished well.

It is hard to put into words the deep and personal loss I feel. She was my friend, and a mentor to me for more than 30 years.

Phyllis was an incredible woman, a spirited defender and champion of the noble causes that matter - faith, family and freedom.

Phyllis's connection with Washington State began when Eagle Forum did - with her successful effort to defeat ERA. Citizens from our state served that effort in defense of marriage and family - the very cornerstones of our culture.

In subsequent years other Washington grassroots citizens activated in defense of conservative principles and values on a myriad of important issues, and chapters of Eagle Forum dotted our state from Spokane to Seattle, Whatcom to San Juan County.

We will continue her legacy just as Phyllis taught us - with grace and truth. That is the greatest tribute we can offer this amazing woman.
