Linda D. McIntyre
It is with tremendous sadness we announce the passing of Linda Diane McIntyre of McAdam, NB., after a brief battle with cancer at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital, Fredericton, NB on Saturday, May 1, 2021.
Born on White Head Island, NB, daughter of the late Laurence and Juanita Trecartin.
Linda had a passion for coffee, the ocean, the outdoors, gardening, jigsaw puzzles and picking enough berries to supply all of White Head. Her most intense love was for her family, especially her grandchildren, who she kept entertained with bedtime stories of her childhood adventures.
Linda touched many lives over the span of her 30 plus years as an R.N. Even after she retired, she continued to dole out advice, take blood pressures and tend wounds from her home on White Head.
Linda will be forever loved and missed by her husband, Lawrence McIntyre, daughter, Jolene Messer (Joel), grandchildren, Tori (Ben), Tyler (Brittany), and Gabrielle, great granddaughter, Aubree. She is also survived by her sisters: Marguerite Rideout (Eldon) and Leah Loof, brothers: Rodney Trecartin (Norah) and William Trecartin (Candace), brothers and sisters-in-law: Harold McIntyre, Ronnie McIntyre (Lorraine), Jackie McIntyre (Rose), Edna Cleghorn (Raymond) and Betty Donahue, as well as many, many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Linda was predeceased by her first husband, Terrance Golding and her children, Michael, Stacey and Ryan in a tragic house fire in 1987. She was also predeceased by her brother, Laurence "Bub" Trecartin, sister, Janice Gildart and two infant nephews.
Due to COVID 19 regulations, a private family funeral service will be held, however the family will receive friends at the Rockland Drive United Baptist Church, McAdam, NB on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 from 12- 1:30 PM. We ask that you please respect all COVID protocols if you plan on attending the visitation at the church.
For those who wish, donations in Linda’s memory may be made to White Head Cemetery, c/o Dorothy Daggett, 443 White Head Road, White Head Island, NB E5G 1K8, Charlotte County Cancer Society or a charity of one’s choice. Condolences may be sent to the family online at www.mehanfuneralhome.ca
