Our beloved friend and longtime St. James member, Norman Taylor, died on Saturday 30 May just before 9:00am after a long battle with cancer. He was at home surrounded by his wife Lois and their three daughters.
Norm will be remembered for his remarkably kind heart, good nature and steadfast faith - a living example of what the Holy Spirit can do in the lives of those who trust in God.
Norm's funeral service will be livestreamed on Friday 12 June at 2:00pm from Egan's Funeral Home. The recording of the service will be available for on-demand viewing for seven days thereafter.
On Saturday 13 June, from 1:00-3:00pm, you are invited to pay your respects to Lois and her family by driving by their home at 16943 Humber Station Road, Caledon. Lois will be outside to greet you.
Due to the pandemic, in lieu of cooking food for Lois, the family has asked that you give her gift certificates to the Wishbone Restaurant.
They would also greatly appreciate donations to St. James in Norm's memory.
Please send your memories of Norm to Diane Allengame who will collect them in a book.
A message from Diane:
Dear Parish Family – please send me your thoughts on Norm and what he meant to you. Don’t worry about getting it perfect, I will clean up any grammar issues. I will be making a book for Lois with your comments and photos of the church and of the area around Norm’s farm. If you didn’t know, Norm was born on the family farm in the former township of Albion (now Caledon). Lois told me last year ‘he was born in this house and he says they’ll carry him out of it’. We’re glad his last earthly sight was his family and the land he loved.
Even if you didn’t know him long or well, please participate anyway. We are a family, and this is one way we can show our care for Lois.
OR leave your written comments in the church mail box outside the east-facing door.
Give rest, O Christ, to your servant with your saints, where sorrow and pain are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting.
