[Providence RI Journal, Tuesday 30 Mar 2004] Retired Justice Florence K. Murray, 87; a pioneer for women in R.I. politics, law. Chief Justice Frank J. Williams calls her "an inspiration to many -- especially women," and orders flags at all court facilities to be lowered to half-staff for 30 days. By Tracy Breton. Journal Staff Writer. Newport -- Florence Kerins Murray, Rhode Island's first female judge, who spent four decades on the bench -- originally on the state Superior Court, and then as a justice on the Rhode Island Supreme Court -- died early Sunday morning, at Newport Hospital, after falling inside her house on Kay Street. She was 87. Murray, a widow who had lived alone since the death of her husband, Paul F. Murray, in 1995, died of internal injuries, according to former Rhode Island Supreme Court administrator John H. Barrette, a close friend of the retired justice who was at her side when she died. A pioneer in politics and the law, Murray served as a Democratic state senator from Newport from 1948 to 1956, when she was sworn in as the state's first female Superior Court judge. She became the first female chief judge of the Superior Court in 1978, and when she was elected by the General Assembly to the state Supreme Court in November 1979, she became the first woman on that bench. Barrette said that Murray had a jam-packed day on Wednesday. He drove her to two doctors' appointments and to her final meeting as a board member of Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island, and then to Wal-Mart so she could shop. Barrette and his wife, Kathy, then took Murray out to dinner at her favorite Newport restaurant, La Forge Casino. But after Murray retired for the night on Wednesday, she fell in her house, Barrette said. Barrette said that Murray balked at seeking medical treatment, but that he and his wife decided Friday night, after bringing Murray a fish dinner at home, that they would return the next morning and take her to the hospital. When the Barrettes returned to Murray's home on Saturday morning, they found that she had fallen for a second time, and could not get up from the floor. A rescue was called to take her to Newport Hospital, where she died at 3 a.m. Sunday, Barrette said. Murray "was probably, besides my Mom and wife, one of the most remarkable women I've ever met," said Barrette, who said he considered Murray "a surrogate mother." "She was a walking history book about the courts, Newport, national politics. She knew everyone," said Barrette. The Newport County Court House was named after her in 1990, and her stature as a jurist was recognized nationally. From 1980 to 1987, she chaired the board of directors of the National Judicial College, the country's school for new judges. Barrette said that last summer, when Murray attended a Blue Cross board meeting on Cape Cod, former presidential candidate Ross Perot, who was a featured speaker, greeted her by name. Rhode Island Chief Justice Frank J. Williams called Murray "an inspiration to many -- especially women. Her mind was keen until the end and it was altogether fitting and proper that if we had to lose her, it would be during the month celebrating women." Murray retired from the state's high court in 1996 but continued to sit on the bench part-time until a couple of years ago. Her last big case, which she was called out of retirement to hear, was the state's appeal of a decision by a Superior Court judge to throw out all the corruption charges against former Gov. Edward D. DiPrete and his son, Dennis L. DiPrete, because of prosecutorial misconduct. Justice Murray decided, with the majority of the justices, that dismissal of the charges was too severe a sanction, and sent the case back to the Superior Court for trial. (DiPrete ended up pleading guilty to 18 felony charges and served 11 months in prison; his son pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and paid a $1,000 fine.) Governor Carcieri yesterday ordered the flags at all state offices to be lowered to half-staff through Thursday in Murray's honor. Williams ordered flags at all court facilities in the state to be lowered to half-staff for 30 days. Supreme Court Justice Maureen McKenna Goldberg, who took Murray's seat on the high court upon her retirement, lauded her "for having broken down so many barriers that were previously closed to women. I believe her greatest accomplishment is that, before she boldly marched into uncharted territory, she paused, turned around and beckoned the rest of us to follow." Murray wasn't the type of person who trumpeted her accomplishments. She described herself as "Mrs. Vanilla" in a lengthy interview published in The Providence Sunday Journal in 1997. "I haven't got any special attributes," she said. "I just do a job as well as I can do it and I seek to keep myself well-informed about whatever my field of work is." She was known as a judge who liked to get to the heart of a problem quickly, someone with street smarts, a feminist before that word was popular, and someone with strong opinions. As a Supreme Court justice, she would make a painstaking search of a court record to support what she believed was a just result. "I'm a prober . . . . I'm tenacious, stubborn but not intractable," said Murray. "I'm inclined to have a lot of patience and to be a listener.... In the law, I'm an issue-finder but I also think I'm a solution-finder. "I was a very good student in law school, and one of the things that saddens me is that my academic talents get overshadowed by 'the first woman syndrome.' People tend to think women have minimum academic credentials. They think that the reason I got where I did was because I was a woman, not because I was smart. "There are a lot of women who are dumbbells and a lot of men who are buffoons," said Murray. "If you're going to give the public their due, appoint, elect or hire someone based on their qualifications, not their gender." Ronald V. Gallo, president and CEO of The Rhode Island Foundation, where Murray served on the board, called her "both feisty and generous to the end. Florence was not shy about expressing her opinions," Gallo said, and "continued to offer us wise counsel as recently as two weeks ago." Murray, a lifelong Newport resident, was the daughter of the late John and Florence (MacDonald) Kerins. A graduate of Newport's Rogers High School and of Syracuse University, in New York - where she would later serve for many years on the board of trustees - Murray taught school for a year in a one-room schoolhouse on Prudence Island before going to law school. She was the only woman in the graduating class of 1942 at Boston University Law School. She joined the Women's Army Corps after graduation and was promoted to lieutenant colonel before leaving the service in 1947. She was the youngest woman to achieve that rank at the time. Upon leaving the Army, she opened a one-woman law firm above a grocery store on Thames Street and later practiced law with her now-deceased husband, who went on to serve as U.S. Attorney for Rhode Island from 1977 to 1981. During Murray's six years in the Rhode Island Senate, she was the only woman in that chamber. While there, she sponsored legislation to abolish wage differences based on gender and for equal pay for teachers throughout the state. She also introduced a bill making it easier for a parent to get child support if a former spouse leaves the state, and another that led to the creation of state facilities for the care and treatment of alcoholics. At the same time as she was a senator, Murray was also a member of the Newport School Committee. Asked how she broke the gender barrier to become Rhode Island's first female judge, Murray said: "I refuse to recognize any gender barriers and considered those who did ignorant." Upon reflection, Murray said she enjoyed life as a trial judge better than that as an appellate judge, where "you're only one-fifth of a judge." She said the hardest part of her job as a judge was that "sometimes, you have to apply law which does not seem to accomplish justice." She was a member of the Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame, and a recipient of a Citizen of the Year Award from the Rhode Island Trial Lawyers Association and a Judge of the Year Award from the National Association of Women Judges. The American Bar Association honored her in 2002 for pioneering work, in the late 1950s, that led to the establishment of Rhode Island's Family Court. She served on numerous judicial and civic boards over the years, among them, Salve Regina College and Bryant College. She founded the Newport Girls Club. In her retirement, Murray was appointed by President Clinton to serve on the board of directors of the State Justice Institute and remained active in National Judicial College affairs. Murray leaves a son, Paul M. Murray, of Algonquin, Ill. The funeral will be held in Newport on Friday, at 9 a.m., from the Memorial Funeral Home, 375 Broadway, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in St. Mary Church. Burial will be private.
