In Memoriam: Jill Ann Ziemkiewicz

Today is the 16th anniversary of the1-DSCN9653-001 last flight of TWA Flight 800, which crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island on July 17, 1996.

One of the crew members on that flight was a young Rutherford resident named Jill Ann Ziemkiewicz, for whom DeKorte Park’s beautiful butterfly garden is named.

The South Bergenite ran a column about the butterfly garden two years. The link is here.

Since then, the butterfly garden has been redone, and we’d like to think it is more beautiful than ever.
