Annual County Memorial Service May 27

Yolo County’s Annual Memorial Service will be held on Friday, May 27 at 11:00 a.m. at the Knights Landing Cemetery, located at 10150 County Rd. 102 in Knights Landing.

The county memorial service is held to pay respects to the individuals served this year by the Yolo County Public Guardian-Public Administrator’s office.  The office manages the estates and/or affairs of persons who cannot care for themselves due to serious physical illness, mental illness or other disability.  Public Administrator services include managing the indigent burial/cremation program and the estates of those who die in Yolo County without a will, or without a relative in the state willing or able to act as administrator.

The county memorial service is an annual celebration of the lives of residents who die alone, without any recognition of their passing.  Decedents being honored have either been clients served by the office of the Public Guardian-Public Administrator, or those whose death and final affairs were handled by the office.  Generally, those served through the indigent burial and cremation program are very low income and often disenfranchised from their families.

“This event provides an opportunity for friends and family to celebrate the lives and acknowledge the passing of Yolo County residents who have died in the past year and were assisted by our office,” said Yolo County Public Guardian-Public Administrator Cass Sylvia.  “The job of finishing up their personal affairs, contacting distant family and arranging for their final resting place is challenging, but can be very rewarding.  The memorial service also provides our staff opportunity to honor those who have passed.”

There will be a short ceremony with music and time for those who wish to share memories of their loved one.  All are welcome.  For more information, call the Yolo County Public Guardian-Public Administrator’s office (530) 666-8100.
