Obituary of Eileen MacIntyre

MacIntyre, Eileen (Halifax, formerly of Point Edward) It is with great sorrow but gratefulness for the time we had of our mother’s love and caring, we announce the passing of Eileen MacIntyre, at home surrounded by members of her family. Mom was born to Raymond and Catherine (Katie) McNabb in Reserve Mines, 98 years ago. Mom was predeceased by her beloved husband Joe, sisters Priscilla, Marjorie and Jean, brother Gordon (Kay), brothers-in-law George, Ryan, and Bernie, and sister-in-law Shirley. Mom is survived by her children Jerry and Joan, sisters Anna Rennie and Rena Antle, brothers Ray and Larry (Bertie), grandchildren Jason (Trisha), Jennifer (Brett), great grandchildren Michael (Mikala), Emma Jean, Olivia, Henry, Emma Marie, and Quinton, as well as many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. Mom was the eldest of nine children. Mom maintained an interest in the well-being of this large family and their loved ones. Mom also pursued her keen interest in researching the family history of the McNabb clan. Following my father’s rejoining the military, our parents moved to places they had never anticipated seeing, particularly Germany and visiting the Netherlands. During her various moves, Mom established life-long friendships and maintained contact with these friends throughout her life, no matter where they were residing after leaving military life. Mom was an avid bowler during her time in Camp Borden and Oromocto. Many good times were had with her bowling buddies. During her civilian life, Mom continued to develop good friendships while participating in her interests and hobbies. Mom loved to dance, particularly jiving. Following Dad’s passing, Mom continued dancing by joining a line dancing group with her good Point Edward friend, Bernadine Lewis. Many games of Tarabish were played with family between Point Edward, Sydney River, and Glace Bay. Mom continued to travel to see new places with old friends or to visit her children or brothers and sisters. Mom enjoyed crafts, such as knitting and ceramics. Seasonal ceramics brightened our home during special occasions and will continue to do so. Beautiful scarves and sweaters will continue to be worn. Mom was an excellent cook and baker. There are so many fond memories of sharing wonderful meals with friends and family, which Mom particularly enjoyed. Mom was talented in a wide range of cooking and baking skills, and our home was full of the wonderful and welcoming aromas of these endeavours. Mom believed in prayer and second chances. Mom believed in trying to see the world from another person’s perspective when hard times ensued. Mom wanted for family and friends to take care of each other, a wish she emphasized before her passing. The family wishes to thank QEII Palliative Care and V.O.N. Halifax for their care and concern. Arrangements have been entrusted to T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, 370 Reserve St., Glace Bay, NS. 902-849-4199.
