Dither Joyce DALEY
By Diane SOKOLOSKI, Monday, November 17, 2003 - Page A14
Wife, sister, mother, auntie, grandmother, friend. Born September 21, 1936, in St.Catharine, Jamaica. Died August 21, in Pickering, Ontario, of colon cancer, aged 66.
Grand Central Station is the nickname of a special house that seemed to have a hundred people whirling through at any given time. Dither DALEY was the matriarch of this Grand Central Station.
In 1955, during a Youth for Christ Rally in Morant Bay, Jamaica, Dither McCALLA drew closer to gospel music that was flowing out of some loudspeakers. Her parents always told her that when she has the Lord to rely on, life will be so much richer. Desmond DALEY was playing that music, and Dither got his attention that day -- and forevermore. They were married and eventually had seven children together (including twins).
In those days, Grand Central Station was a zinc-roofed bungalow in Morant Bay with mischievous cows roaming the fields. Dither raised her kids so they could be successful in school and take their places in the world.
An Evangelical Gospel Hall in Kingston was their home away from home, and the DALEYs had one bench all to themselves. Every Sunday as their micro-bus wound its way along Jamaica's twisting roads, the singing DALEY voices could be heard floating out toward the Caribbean Sea.
The Grand Central Station kitchen was the place to be, with the smells of mangoes, coconuts and ackee and saltfish in the air. The DALEY kids remember their mother singing all the time, in response to their demands for attention: "I'm coming, the Lord says I'm coming..."
Dither was never one to ask for help even when she needed it. Once she announced, "I swallowed a chicken bone." Dither worked the bone down and went on with her chores! Even with Grand Central Station being packed to the rafters with the DALEYs, Dither and Desmond found the time and patience to help four sets of foster children through some tough times. Dither made sure Grand Central Station was the kind of house that could absorb lots of people and make everyone want to stay. With the help of sponsors, the nine DALEYs, all on the same visa, made it to Canada in 1972 in the middle of a bone-chilling winter. Once in Toronto, Dither and Desmond worked hard inside and outside the home to provide for their family, and during that time the kids grew up and produced 18 grandchildren. Some of the original foster children still keep in touch and the generations gravitate to wherever Dither and Desmond make home base.
On January 1, with sparks flying, the multicultural DALEYs come from far and wide to greet the new year, celebrate life and pray. It is at these crazy feasting times that Grand Central Station is just the way Dither liked it -- bursting at the seams with God's love, family and Friends.
In 2002, Dither was diagnosed with colon cancer and she made a brave attempt to fight the disease with organic food and natural supplements, rather than breaking her body down with chemotherapy.
For more than 25 years, Dither and Desmond went to a little church in Scarborough called Bridlegrove Bible Chapel. Precious excerpts from Dither's journal were read at the her funeral there. Dither treated every day as a new chance to praise God and give thanks for the acts of kindness bestowed upon her by the people in her life.
Diane SOKOLOSKI is a friend of Dither DALEY.

Rolf O. KROGER, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of Psychology University of Toronto
Rolf died, as he lived, with grace, courage, humour and dignity, at home on April 18th, 2003, of advanced prostate cancer. He was the devoted and beloved husband of Linda WOOD. He was the cherished son of Erna KROGER and son-in-law of Adele WOOD; loving brother of Harold and Jurgen KROGER; dear brother-in-law of Wilma KROGER, Edelgard DEDO, Lorraine WOOD, Robert and Deborah WOOD, and Reg WOOD; much loved uncle of Andrew KROGER and Stephen KROGER, Christina and Linda JUHASZ- WOOD, Taylor, Genna and Devon WOOD, Jonathan and Nicole WOOD, Phillippe NOEL, and Jose and David TILLETT, and nephew of Liesl WINTER, Otto WINTER and Alf and Sue MODJESKI. Rolf was born in Hamburg, Germany, on September 28th, 1931. He emigrated to Canada in 1952, and completed a B.A. in psychology at Sir George Williams College (now Concordia University) in 1957. Following his M.A. (1959) at Columbia University, New York, he received his Ph.D. in psychology from the University of California at Berkeley in 1963. His advisor, Prof. Theodore R. SARBIN (Prof. Emeritus, University of California, Santa Cruz,) has continued to be a valued colleague and dear friend, together with Rolf's fellow graduate student, Prof. Karl E. SCHEIBE of Wesleyan University and Karl's wife Wendy. Rolf joined the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto in 1964 and continued his research and writing in social psychology after retiring in 1996. Rolf's work addressed a variety of topics concerning the individual in the social system. His articles and papers on the social psychology of test-taking, hypnosis, history, epistemology, methodology and the discipline of social psychology all reflected his dissatisfaction with the status quo combined with proposals for new directions. For more than 20 years he has worked with Linda A. WOOD (University of Guelph) on topics in language and social psychology (e.g., terms of address and politeness), and most recently on a book on discourse analysis. At the time of his death, he was working on a discursive critique of the 'Big Five' personality theory enterprise and on stories of his experiences growing up in Germany during the Second World War. Rolf also took great pleasure in teaching and greatly valued the opportunity to work for almost forty years with so many talented and enthusiastic students, both undergraduate and graduate. Rolf was privileged to have many long-lasting Friendships, and he was grateful for the encouragement, help and comfort given by so many, especially Bogna ANDERSSON, Eva and Fred BILD, Clare MacMARTIN and Bill MacKENZIE, Frances NEWMAN and Fred WEINSTEIN, Jesse NISHIHATA, Anne and Michael PETERS, Andrew and Judi WINSTON and Lorraine WOOD. We have also been sustained by the kindness of our neighbours on Walmer Road. We express our particular thanks and appreciation to family physician and friend, Dr. Christine LIPTAY. Our thanks go also to the staff of Princess Margaret Hospital, to the physicians and nurses of the Hospice Palliative Care Network Project, especially Dr. Russell GOLDMAN and nurses Francine BOHN, Joan DYKE, Dwyla HAMILTON, Lynda McKEE and Ella VAN HERREWEGHE, and to the nurses of St. Elizabeth, especially Liz LEADBEATER, Sylvia McCALLUM and Cecilia McPARLAND. Cremation was private. There will be an Open House for remembrance and celebration on Sunday, April 27th (3-7 p.m.), Monday, April 28th (4-8 p.m.) and Tuesday, April 29th (4-8 p.m.) at 98 Walmer Road, Toronto, Ontario M5R 2X7. Please direct any queries to Frances NEWMAN (416-351-0755.) In lieu of flowers, donations to Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care (700 University Avenue, Third Floor, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1Z5) or Amnesty International would be appreciated.
