Maude McIntyre, passed away December 12, 2020, in Fort Saskatchewan, AB.
She had just celebrated her 104th birthday. Maude was born in Roland MB, on Dec. 9, 1916, the 3rd of 9 children born to Archie and Annie Miller.
During her training as a secretary in Winnipeg, her family moved to Grandview MB, and it was there she met and in 1939 married Neil McIntyre, then a farmer in that town. They were introduced by Fran Routley, a fellow secretarial student from who just happened to be from Grandview.
Their 3 children were born in Grandview, and the family lived there until 1958, when they moved to Fort Saskatchewan, as did so many friends and relatives. As her family grew, Maude went to work as an Aide at Rivercrest Nursing Home, where she worked for 16 years until her retirement. She developed a group of friends from there who called themselves “The Old Girls” and they remained close all their lives.
After Neil’s death in 1996, Maude moved into Turner Lodge, where she lived for 20 years until transferring to Rivercrest Lodge shortly after she turned 100. In later years there she was joined by her friend and cousin-by-marriage Alma (McIntyre) Manns, who has been her friend since 1939.
Maude was predeceased by her parents Annie Anderson Miller (1969), Archie Miller (1978), 3 brothers and 4 sisters, her husband of 57 years, Neil (1996), and her beloved grandson Kyle (July 2020). She is survived by her children Hazel (Cary “Kass”) Kassebaum of Cottonwood AZ, Don (Lois) of Fort Saskatchewan AB, and Bruce (Jennifer) of Blaine, WA., 14 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and many many nieces and nephews, all of whom she loved and admired.
Internment will be in the Fort Saskatchewan Cemetery at a later date, no service at this time.
