$25 per month rent and kept
$2 a week for myself." At
age 22 in 1932, he and his
family came to Detroit,
where he would meet his
future wife.
During his career, he
worked for various printing
houses and a number of
publications, including the
Polish Daily News, the
Detroit News, Detroit Times
and Detroit Mirror.
Betty's father could read
English and had owned a
successful import-export
business and a bath house.
The family of 10 literally
had dodged the bullets of the
post-Russian Revolution to
come to America in 1921,
when Betty was 9 years old.
Betty went to business
school, learning secretarial
work which she put to use
for a brother-in-law at
Brodes Department Store in
Dearborn. She also vol-
unteered to sell war bonds
and knit afghans for wound-
ed soldiers in the Second
World War.
What both Krokers de-
veloped from these life expe-
riences was a high degree of
organization, which stood
them well at JPM and,
ultimately, in working
toward their diplomas. Jack
Kroker, for example, became
president of the JPM senior
adult council, organizing
numerous trips for other
seniors, and Betty became
active in the choir. Both con-
tributed hundreds of hours
in volunteer work at JPM,
for which they earned corn-
munity service credit toward
their diplomas.
In fact, when Jack Kroker
needed an official record of
his work experience, he
found a letter of recommen-
dation from a Toronto
employer who praised him
for his skills and reliability
in 1926.
"What makes it so neat,"
said Joann M. Anderson,
Ferndale coordinator of the
adult-ed program, "is they
are our first graduates.
Sometimes that's what it
takes to get the ball rolling,
to get others in their age
group interested in getting
their diplomas. It becomes a
little contagious, even
though at their ages, it's
only for personal satisfac-
tion."
The Krokers' warmth to
others — not necessarily a
requirement for a diploma —
has endeared them to those
at JPM. "They are a special
kind of people who do not do
things for recognition, but
because they like doing
them," said Diane Sands,
JPM senior adult program
director.

"They always had a hug
and a kiss for their teacher,"
said Linda Kayes. "And they
always have respect for each
other. They always looked at
each other with pride."
The Krokers, who met at a
bridge game at the Chinese
Tea Garden on Woodward
and eloped a few months
later, reared two daughters,
RoseAnn Rubenstein and
Carolyn Bloom. The
daughters teased Jack last
week over taking mother to
the prom, and Carolyn joked
she was now saving money
for her parents' college tui-
tion.
The Krokers will be join-
ing RoseAnn and her hus-
band in Palm Springs, Calif.,
where they will be moving
this year.
"We will feel a great loss,"
said Sandweiss at a special
program in the Krokers'
honor at JPM. "They know
how to be friends, they know
how to be caring. And Betty
gives very special hugs."
Then Sandweiss presented
them with a special cer-
tificate from the Center
honoring them for their ac-
complishment.
"It was no effort on our
part," Betty Kroker said.
"But we'll be back. We'll
come on vacations here." ❑
