February 26, 2014 • 7 pm at the Cemetery’s main office Book Club ST. JOHN’S NORWAY CEMETERY AND CREMATORIUM Read a book related to life beyond death/dying/grief, and share your thoughts and impressions: The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion (2005). Didion didn’t start writing her 13th book until 10 months after her husband’s death. He had died of a heart attack as the couple sat down to dinner in their apartment and while Quintana, their only child, was in intensive care with pneumonia and septic shock. She died 18 months later. As the book demonstrates, after a period of derangement, Didion turned to face her grief and asked, as she has been asking with force all her life, can I write this down? Didion takes on the American way of grief, which she sees as evasiveness posing as courage.

How may we serve you? St. John’s Norway provides a complete range of services that can respond to the cultural and financial requirements of each individual or family, as they wish. We therefore encourage commemoration of the deceased in ways that are appropriate to the unique preferences and culture of the lives they lived. Chapel Our nondenominational Chapel was built to accommodate all services associated with cremation and seats approximately fifty people. Crematorium About St. John’s Norway Cemetery St. John’s Cemetery Norway is an historic cemetery in Toronto, Ontario. It is located at the intersection of Kingston Road and Woodbine Avenue in the east end of the city just northwest of The Beach neighbourhood. In 1853, Charles Coxwell Small, a prominent landowner in the area then known as the village of Norway, just east of Toronto, deeded three acres of his land to the then Bishop of Toronto, The Rt. Rev. John Strachan, to build an Anglican church with an adjoining “churchyard”. By 1921 the churchyard and cemetery had expanded to some 35 acres. There are now approximately 51,000 graves and 80,000 interments. Although operated by The Church of St. John the Baptist, Norway (Anglican), the cemetery has always been open to all people, from the early United Empire Loyalists to the cosmopolitan population of Toronto today. In 1998, a Crematorium was added to ensure that the cemetery provided a full range of contemporary services for the twenty-first century. For additional information, please visit the website at , email or call the office at 416-691-2965. With the Crematorium and Chapel, full cremation services are provided for the community and greater Toronto area. Niches The aboveground niches on the exterior wall of the Chapel and the free-standing niche monuments can accommodate two to four urns. They are faced with granite and a bronze wreath is available to memorialize individuals.
