Yolo County’s annual memorial service, which pays respect to individuals served this year by the Public Guardian/Administrator’s Office, will begin at 11 a.m. Friday at the Knights Landing Cemetery, 101501 County Road 102.
The Public Guardian/Administrator’s 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/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.
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 530-666-8100.
