kyrstin Elizabeth


Named for Kyrstin Elizabeth Eachus, the Kyrstin Elizabeth Fund fills a special need at Share of Lancaster. Monies from the fund are distributed to families who are in need of financial assistance to meet burial and funeral costs when a baby dies. This Fund is specifically designed to serve those families who may not qualify for the Share Burial service, such as those whose babies have died from SIDS.

Parents interested in applying for a funeral or burial expense grant from the Kyrstin Elizabeth Fund should request an application and further information from their funeral director. Parents may also contact Share of Lancaster directly with questions regarding the fund at 717-553-7857 or
