RUDOLPH, Gladys
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 Rudolph's 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. 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 to a charity of your choice.
