The Spokane County held a funeral service Tuesday at Fairmount Memorial Park Cemetery. The cemetery provided a discounted cemetery plot for the burial. The Hennessy Smith Funeral Home also provided a casket and transportation of the body to the cemetery at a discounted rate according to county officials.
Chaplains from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Department performed the service, which was attended by staff members from the Medical Examiner’s Office.
The Medical Examiner’s Office said all potential leads to the woman’s identity had been exhausted.
Officials at the examiner’s office said they believed the woman’s family was still missing her and hoped that someone would recognize her description and come forward with a name.
She was described as between 30 and 55-years-old, without tattoos, 5’2” tall and weighing 144 lbs. She had dark hair and brown eyes according to the medical examiner.
The Medical Examiner thanked community partners for helping with the burial and asked anyone who recognized the woman’s description to call their office.
