Public burial ceremony July 13 lays to rest 15 residents7/1/2019

The Kitsap County Coroner's Office will hold a public burial ceremony at 10 a.m. July 13 at the Silverdale Pioneer Cemetery for 15 residents who were considered "indigent" at the time of their passing and left the world without family or funds for a final resting place.

The Kitsap County Coroner's Office feels very strongly that these individuals deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. By way of a generous donation from Sue Brown several years ago, Kitsap County was gifted two large cemetery plots at the Pioneer Cemetery, located at the end of Impasse Place off Anderson Hill Road. These plots provide a beautiful setting for these individuals to be interned.

Chaplain Don Melendez of Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue will officiate a short ceremony. Anyone who would like to attend is encouraged to join in this opportunity to show respect to those who have departed, and that they are not alone nor forgotten as they are laid to rest.
