The burial of stillborn infants has become a Staten Island tradition, giving them a burial that both dignified and deserved.
Thanks to the Richmond County Public Administrator’s (RCPA) Office, these infants are recognized as human beings that deserve a proper burial. The RCPA, headed by Commissioner and Public Administrator of Richmond County Edwina Frances Martin, presided over the burial of six stillborn babies at the Garden of Angels section for children at Resurrection Cemetery, Charleston.
In addition, volunteers from the Foundation for Dignity, a non-profit organization that works to bury all residents of Staten Island, participated in the funeral. The John Vincent Scalia Home for Funerals and Resurrection Cemetery also donated professional services, caskets, flowers and gravesites to RCPA for the burial of the stillborn infants.
Among these volunteers was Beta Abstract’s Title Coordinator, Helen Kingsley Timari. She helped to provide Staten Island stillborn babies with a caring, compassionate burial. Helen has done amazing things not only in her professional life but in her volunteer work as well. The Beta Abstract team would like to extend a huge congratulations to Helen for all of the outstanding work she does for the community.
