Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY -

Truro - It is with pro­found sad­ness that the fam­ily of Joan Macintosh announces her pass­ing peace­fully at home on May 5, 2019, sur­rounded by her lov­ing daugh­ters. She was pre­de­ceased by her de­voted and lov­ing hus­band, Don­ald Mans­field Macintosh; her par­ents, Harold and Made­line Tat­trie; and her sis­ter, Ardith Kuhn. She will be for­ever missed and fondly re­mem­bered by her four daugh­ters, Paige (Steve) Ger­tridge, and chil­dren Kira and Erin; Car­men Macintosh ( Jim De­wolfe), and chil­dren, Dwayne, Amanda, Ryan, Ash­ley, Kelly and Julie; Dawn (Ian) Mac­fad­den and sons, Ross, Corey and David; and Su­san Macintosh (Larry Swinamer) and her son Noah; and her 19 great grand­chil­dren. Joan was born in Truro, Nova Scotia on Novem­ber 28, 1930. She was an ac­tive mem­ber of her com­mu­nity, serv­ing as the first Pres­i­dent of the Halifax, Bed­ford Basin PC Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion (1979) and mem­ber of the IODE. In ad­di­tion to a de­voted fam­ily, Joan had many close friends in her life. She will be missed by the mem­bers of her bridge club where she will be re­mem­bered for her “en­thu­si­asm” for win­ning, and the hook­ing club where she pur­sued an­other of her favourite hob­bies. The fam­ily ex­presses its heart felt ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the ex­pert and com­pas­sion­ate care pro­vided to Joan in her fi­nal days by the staff of the Colch­ester East Hants Health Cen­tre, the Pal­lia­tive Care Team, the VON, and fam­ily friends, all of whom made it pos­si­ble for Joan to spend her fi­nal days at home sur­rounded by friends and fam­ily, and her dear dog, Lind­say.
