COVID-19 Memorial & Tribute

The City of Irvine seeks to honor and remember its residents who have died from COVID-19 by establishing a memorial webpage and tribute. Sadly, 80 Irvine residents have succumbed to COVID-19 since the pandemic began. The memorial webpage offers the community an opportunity to remember loved ones lost to the coronavirus. The webpage will be updated as new submissions are received. As a resource during this troubling time, you can view FEMA's Federal Expense Reimbursement plan which will provide financial assistance for COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020.

"My Father's vibrance and zest for life carried him until his death from Coronavirus on the morning of May 5th. Always the entertainer he even played piano at the nursing home. Until the end he called my daughter and I to just say good night."

"Hearing you scream at the hospital and not being able to say good bye during this PANDEMIC was heartbreaking. Your singing, “YES I CAN” & “Watch your back when walking” & “Youth wonderful treasure” will be always remembered RIP Shema Israel"
