Halifax, Nova Scotia
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, April 23, 2007

It is with deep and profound sadness that we announce the passing of a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle at his residence in Nova Scotia. He was born in Grand Falls, N.L., where he spent most of his youth.

He attended St. Francis Xavier University and graduated from Dalhousie with a B.Sc. in 1948. He received his medical degree (MB BCH BAO) from the National University of Galway, Ireland, in 1954. He then went to Michigan (Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids, U.S.A.) to specialize in obstetrics and gynaecology, where he received his fellowship degree (FRCS) in 1959. Following his specialty he returned to his native land, St. John's, N.L., and practiced medicine where he became well-known and loved throughout the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Illness befell him in the late 1960s, and he was forced to give up his loved practice of obstetrics in the 1980s. He received transplant in 1986 in London, Ont., at the good age of 64. Following his transplant surgery, he returned with gusto to pursue his special interest in a specialized field of surgery - cryosurgery. He continued to practise his beloved medicine with devotion to his patients until 1994 when he retired. He was the oldest recipient of a heart transplant in Canada and retained good health for 20 years enabling him to continue his lifelong dreams.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Philomena E. Murphy, formerly of Galway, Ireland; daughters, Dr. Carolyn Boulos and Deirdre Broude; sons, Albert and Cieran Boulos; grandchildren, Krista, Daniel, James, Robert, Zachary, Connor, Sarah, Amber, Madison, and Aidan. Also left to mourn are his only living sibling, beloved older brother, Albert and wife Maisie, and many nieces and nephews. He will be deeply missed by a wealth of good friends.

RUDOLPH, Gladys
- 84, Halifax. It is with great sadness, mixed with grateful appreciation for a life well lived that we, her children, announce the passing of our beloved mother, Gladys Rudolph on Thursday, April 5, 2007.

As she had hoped, Mom died peacefully in the comfort of her own bed, at home in Halifax. Our dear mother was the third child of Rhoda and Tom Lake, Newfoundlanders who had moved to Whitney Pier, Sydney, Cape Breton. Gladys is survived by two of her sisters, Dorothy and Vida. Mom was predeceased by her brother, Clarence, and her sister, Genevra "Jenny".

Gladys grew up in Sydney, graduated from Sydney Academy, then moved into a career in nursing, earning her RN from Sydney City Hospital in 1945. After a brief stint traveling in Canada, Mom and her nursing friend Helen returned to Nova Scotia's South Shore where each met a handsome young man and married. Not long after, Jim and Gladys' first child, Dorothy (Roy), was born. Then came Tom (Debby) and Dan (Janet), and after a brief pause (five years), along came John (Wendy). By this time the Rudolphs were settled in Halifax and Mom resumed her nursing career, looking after many, many newborns on the night shift as Head Nurse of Unit B at the Grace Maternity.

Devoted to family and to her career, Gladys organized the household and everyone knew clearly whose turn it was to do chores or to say the grace at mealtime. After her retirement, Gladys focused on family including grandchildren (Jamie, Gary, Gwen, Julia, Hilary, and Joel), church, and her lovely home in Halifax. People always commented on Gladys' ability to keep the place just perfect.

Mom was our number one cheerleader, and we are so appreciative of her loving care for each of us over her 84 years. We would like to thank the wonderful, caring staff at the QEII Emergency Unit, and also the staff who helped Gladys with her many needs on Floors 4, 5, and 7 and at the Restorative Care Unit in the veterans wing where Mom spent some time during the last few years. A very special thanks and heartfelt appreciation go to Dr. Rex Langdon for his care and home visits. We are also indebted to the kindness of Mom's neighbours, especially Rory and Donna and Patricia Martin, and to Mom's Newfoundland Angels, her caregivers Cathy Chaisson and Gloria Mauger, without whom Mom would not have been able to enjoy her last days in the comfort of her home. Thank you Rev. Rod Gillis for your support and prayers, and for bringing communion to Gladys, in her sun porch! Mom, we know that you are at peace in God's loving embrace. It's easy for us to imagine one more smiling angel in Heaven's glorious choir.

Visitation will be in J.A. Snow Funeral Home on Windsor Street on Tuesday, April 10, from 2-4 and 7-8:30 p.m.; funeral service at 1 p.m. Wednesday in St. James Anglican Church at the Rotary, Rev. Rod Gillis officiating. Family flowers only. Memorial donations may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Atlantic Division, the QEII Foundation, or charity of your choice.
