Every time she visits the Oak Street Cemetery, Carol Jurovaty, a Norwich grandmother, sees more examples of vandalism. Historic headstones from the late 1700s and 1800s are knocked down or broken in half. Wrought-iron railings are missing, likely stolen to be sold as scrap.
“It’s heartbreaking,” Jurovaty said. She visits the cemetery every couple of weeks and voluntarily picks up fallen stones, cuts brush and fills garbage bags with litter. “It’s a labor of love,” she said. “It’s not a job for me. I love doing it.”
