Clarita de Gala DAYOT
By Trisa DAYOT and J.J. DAYOT, Page A24
Wife, mother, dentist, friend, benefactor. Born June 7, 1917, in Candelaria, the Philippines. Died December 22, 2005, of a stroke, in Toronto, aged 88.
Clarita DE GALA was born the youngest of four children. Her parents Manuel and Honesta recognized an unstoppable and confident spirit of adventure in their daughter. Clarita graduated from university as a dentist in the early 1950s: a time when women in the Philippines were not expected to drive a car, let alone practise a profession. After an ironic stint as the resident dentist for a candy factory, Clarita wanted to further her education. She was awarded the Fulbright scholarship for post-graduate studies in dentistry at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Before returning to the Philippines, Clarita drove cross-country with several girlfriends to see as much of America as she could. She followed this up with a round-the-world tour, making quick and steadfast Friends wherever she went.
When she got back home, Clarita soon married Luis Adrian DAYOT. Luis was her soul mate; a "mestizo" lawyer. The happy couple soon had two children, a daughter, Trisa, and a son, J.J. Clarita left her full-time dental practice, limiting her treatment to family and Friends and devoted her time to looking after her family. In 1971, Luis and Clarita became increasingly wary of the political situation in the Philippines under the dictator Ferdinand Marcos. The decision was made to emigrate to Toronto, Canada.
The four Dayots tried hard to rebuild their lives in their adopted country; life was not easy in their new surroundings and Clarita was very homesick. But instead of dwelling on her sadness, she soon got busy. She founded the Candelaria Association (after her birthplace) and became a founding member of the Filipino Parents' Association. She surrounded herself with individuals who shared her history and love of her native land. She also found a job with a dental supply company.
Tragedy struck in 1976 with the sudden death of Luis. Clarita became both a mother and father to Trisa and J.J., encouraging and supporting their endeavours and aspirations while continuing to work full-time. After her retirement and up until her 80th year, she was a busy and caring volunteer at the Silayan Filipino Community Centre and for the Red Cross at Sunnybrook Hospital. She also rekindled her passion for travel and visited Israel, Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. When she turned 85, she travelled back to the Philippines for the last time to celebrate her birthday with family and Friends, dancing the night away with the playfulness and abandonment that had characterized her as a young woman.
Our Mom was always at her happiest in the company of others. She enthusiastically organized social events, brought people together and happily watched Friendships unfold. She kept up avid correspondence with Friends and family all over the world. She adored celebrations of all kinds, from large family birthdays to a block rosary party. Everyone was family to her; she was "Tia" (auntie) to all.
Since her death, we have learned even more about her acts of kindness: how she helped put less-fortunate relatives through school, helped others find jobs, buy their first car or furnish their first home. She never forgot her birthplace of Candelaria and continued to help new immigrants from her hometown.
In many ways it made perfect sense that Mom had helped others surpass their limits and achieve their dreams, since she herself had the opportunity to achieve so much and to live a life well beyond her time -- a life of spirited independence and indelible warmth.
Trisa and J.J. are Clarita's children.

She will be remembered for her insistence on always trying to do better, especially by the many students at The Atkinson School of Nursing at T.W.H. with whom she came in contact as well as to those for whom she acted as advocate during her tenure at The Canadian Diabetes Association, Toronto Branch. She never forgot the continued support she received from her many medical professionals, most recently Doctor Jeannie CALLUM of The Sunnybrook Cancer Centre, and the family would like to express their thanks for the care and compassion afforded to Audrey by Doctor Marcus KARGEL and the Intensive Care Unit team. The family requests that memorial donations should be made to Glenview Presbyterian Church, Toronto, or a charity of choice. There will always be a place for her at her beloved Kinrara We will cherish the Memories
