Sobbing pals recall their 'rose'
Kitchen volunteer fed hungry with food from own fridge
Pattern of abuse started early in victim's life, cousin says
By Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporter with files from Dale Anne FREED
Rose McGROARTY was known for putting the needs of others -- to eat a good meal, find shelter, have a shower -- before her own. Even among close Friends, the 46-year-old rarely talked about her aches, the causes of the bruises beneath her sweater, why she spent so much time volunteering at the Parkdale Activity-Recreation Centre, or made it her home away from home.
If only she had, mournful Friends said yesterday, her fate might have been different.
"I can't help thinking that I wish I had known what you were going through," a friend wrote to McGROARTY in a letter read at a packed memorial service at the community centre. The building houses the kitchen where McGROARTY spent six days a week the last three years volunteering and making Friends -- until she disappeared last month. Her dismembered body parts have been found throughout the city.
But a family member said it would have been out of character for the hard-luck woman to tell anyone if she was a punching bag. She learned early, the cousin said yesterday, to distract herself and not dwell on what was really going on.
"I understand that she didn't have a whole lot of money in Toronto," said Kimberly CAMPBELL, a cousin who grew up with McGROARTY in London, Ontario "The catch here is that it didn't start (in Toronto)," she told the Star in a phone interview. "But Rose Marie was the type of person, no matter what anybody did to her, she would never talk about it."
A pattern of abuse in McGROARTY's life started early, when she was about 6 or 7, CAMPBELL said. She was living in London at the time, and with her mother unable to care for her -- for reasons that are unclear -- McGROARTY moved into a boarding house run by Edith SANDERS.
In 2002, SANDERS was convicted for enslaving and torturing children, including CAMPBELL, her adopted daughter, from the 1950s to the 1980s. SANDERS' victims testified at her trial that while under her care, they were beaten with hockey sticks, tortured with a cattle prod and forced to eat animal feces. SANDERS was sentenced in January 2003 to four years in prison on four counts of assault and three counts of assault causing bodily harm. She died last year while on parole.
The conviction stemmed from allegations brought by CAMPBELL and other siblings; none of the charges that resulted in conviction related to McGROARTY.
"Rose Marie didn't have a fighting chance (in life,)" CAMPBELL said, recounting their tormented childhood. "Dysfunctional leads to dysfunctional. She didn't get the education she needed, she was abused mentally and physically, and yet she went along in life and tried to accomplish and do the best that she could.
"It sounds to me that she was doing wonderfully for what she experienced in her lifetime. She was such a forgiving person."
"This was Rose's home. This was a very important place for her," said Peggy-Gail DEHAL- RAMSON, a Parkdale community advocate.
Nearly 100 people gathered at the memorial service, one of two held for McGROARTY yesterday. Leaning on canes -- and each other and wiping wet cheeks, those whom McGROARTY treated like family lamented their great loss. At times, centre general manager Victor WILLIS had to pause to console the crowd.
"There's such a disconnect between who she was and how she died," he said. "We will not let another woman be harmed in our community."
Three women who worked alongside McGROARTY in the kitchen each day, Michelle WALDRON, Jean McGRATH and Sugar WALKER -- who had a red silk rose pinned to her top -- sobbed uncontrollably during the reading of farewell letters they wrote to their friend.
"Knowing someone like you, Rosie, you really were a 'rose,'" one letter said. "A good friend. A beautiful person. A 'rose' could not be so sweet as you!"
Greg DOWE, 25, met McGROARTY through his grandmother, Marjorie, who frequently offered up her Dunn Ave. apartment for McGROARTY when she needed a reprieve.
"This is just like killing a part of my family," DOWE said. "She's the kind of person who would give up their life in order for somebody else to live. Everything about her was to make everybody else happy."
Later in the afternoon, Father Vaughan QUINN asked 20 parishioners to remember McGROARTY and her good works at a service at the Missionaries of Charity Convent, near her apartment.
WALKER said McGROARTY had been trying to mend fences with her mother and two children, in their 20s, after years of estrangement.
After the hour-long service at the Parkdale community centre, Friends stayed to trade favourite stories about McGROARTY. She was a rare volunteer who allowed the very hungry to come back for seconds -- if the food ran out, she wasn't above running home and taking from her own fridge.
Robert WISZNIOWSKI, McGROARTY's 50-year-old common-law husband, has been charged with second-degree murder.
