BOUDREAU, Dr. John Francis "Jack" - Surrounded by his entire family, Dr. Jack passed away peacefully and with great faith in his God, on Saturday, October 18, 2003. Jack was born in Halifax in 1922, the son of Captain Thomas and Beatrice (O'Neill) Boudreau, brother of Marie (MacKinnon), Joan (Cullens) and Larry. Jack spent several active years at Dalhousie University culminating with his graduation from Medical School in 1951. During his stay at Dal, he was social director of the Arts and Science Society, Med School Representative to Student Council, president of Student Council, member of Phi Rho Sigma Fraternity and president of the Dalhousie Newman Club. Not surprisingly, Jack graduated with the Dalhousie Gold "D", the Student Council Award and the John Henry Newman Honor Society Gold Key. This all paled in significance to the most fortunate event in his life at the time - he met the love of his life and his wife to be, Corinne "Peggy" Meade and in 1952 they began a union that was to last 51 years. This union was blessed with eight children and several lifetimes of great friends with whom many great times were shared. From 1951 to 1993 Jack shared his gifts of kindness and compassion with thousands of patients in his family practice starting in the upper floor of his parents' home on Robie Street and ending several blocks away in the Halifax Professional Centre. Upon his retirement he was genuinely touched by the many expressions of kindness from countless loyal patients. Over the years Jack also found time to volunteer in his community as chair of the Rockingham School Board, treasurer of the Medical Society of Nova Scotia, chair of Saint Mary's Basilica Parish Council and up to the time of his death, in Pastoral Care at QEII Health Sciences Centre. Jack's most profound love however was for his wife and family to whom he gave himself completely. Great family vacations, countless gatherings were shared with family and friends. 6620 Jubilee Rd. was open to all. The music never stopped.

BOURQUE, Joseph Thomas - 15 Spring St., Amherst, passed away March 3, 2004, peacefully  after a brief illness. It was his 95th birthday. He was the great, great, great, great, great, great, great-grandson of Antoine Bourg who immigrated to Nova Scotia from Loudun, France in 1632. He joins his parents, Wilfred and Celina (Boudreau) Bourque: brothers, Alfred, Edward, Francis,  Adolphe; sisters, Mary, Jean, Margaret, Alice, Rose, Ella and Elizabeth; and his beloved wife  Betty (LeBlanc) whom he missed and looked forward to being with again. He was certain of a grand birthday celebration with those he loved! From the age of 16, he worked in Christies Trunk and Baggage, and made many friends there over the years. One hiatus in work was the three years he spent overseas as an R.C.A. Field Gunner, where he joined the 19th Field Regiment for the third wave on Normandy in June of 1944. Though he saw much action, Joe's war stories were of  friends he made in Holland, and the lifelong love of bagpipes he discovered in Scotland. He traveled the Maritimes throughout his life, first by motorcycle with "the bike gang", then bringing his family on many memorable vacations, discovering hidden gems from the Cabot Trail to the Gaspe.
With camera ever ready, he leaves behind a wonderful collection of pictorial memories. Joe was  first and foremost a family man, and lived a life centered around his siblings, his ever-smiling wife, and children with friends in tow. There were two things
central to Joe's life, a love of music whic  he shared with all who entered his home, and "Yokum Inn", the cottage he built at Tidnish Head, where family hearts are firmly ensconced. These joys will continue on for many years. Joe is  survived by his daughters, Marion Bourque, Toronto; Phyllis Greer, Dartmouth; Jeanne Bourque,   Amherst; grandsons, Scott and Matthew Greer. Visitation will be held on Saturday, March 6, from   2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in Furlongs Funeral Home, Amherst. Joe's
funeral mass will be held Monday, March 8, at 10 a.m. in St. Charles Parish, Amherst. Following the service, a time of fellowship and  gathering will be held in St. Charles Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations in Joe's memory may be made to St. Vincent de Paul Society, Amherst or a charity of your choice. (902-667-8777 or   e-mail: Furlongs.Funeral.Home@rapidprint.ns.ca
