Florence Ann McIntyre
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our mother at the Moncton Hospital following a brief illness. A profoundly dedicated mother, she spent much of her life on her own working hard to provide for her four daughters who will miss her deeply: Gisele Peacock of Saint John; Monica Plant (Fred) of Dieppe; Kathleen Kieley (Paul) of Bedford, N.S. and Margaret (Maggie) Floyd (Michael) of Pointe-du Chene and her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Jill Peacock (Jamie Van Alstine), Jennifer St. Thomas (Phillip), Nicholas Henrichs (Patti), Daniel Plant, Darcy Plant (Christine Comeau), Laura MacIntosh (Ken), Stephen Kieley (Brittany), Lauren Weir (Sam) and Chris Floyd; Ella, Lexi, Leif, Grace, Rhys, Sterling, Marin and little Emmeline, several nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents Florence was predeceased by her sisters Edna Roy, Albina D’Aoust, Irene McIntrye; brothers Herby, Alban and Forbes and her infant son, James.
Born in Charlo, she moved to southern New Brunswick as a young adult and spent most of her working life in administrative assistant positions with Prudential Insurance and the Federal Government.
In retirement Florence was a dedicated volunteer at the Moncton Hospital, United Way, Heart and Stroke Association and The Riverview Tourist Bureau. Florence was immensely proud of her Irish and Scottish heritage and had a great love of travel and adventure.
For forty-six years Florence was a member of The Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Riverview. Her dedication to God and the Catholic Church propelled Florence though life and formed the foundation of her desire to assist others while giving her comfort through times of trouble.
A Funeral mass will be held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church on Monday, August 10, 2020 at 11:00am, the number of guests will be according to covid-19 restrictions at that time. A guest book will be available to sign when the maximum number of guests within the church is reached.
Florence spent the last 6 years of her life dealing with blindness associated with strokes. Memorial donations to the House of Nazareth, Knights of Columbus (Riverview),The Canadian Institute for The Blind or to the charitable institution of the donor’s choice will extend Florence’s generous spirit and will be greatly appreciated by the family. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Arnold Brassard for his kindness to our Mother.
