|May the memory of Carolyn be with us forever|
It is with great sadness that we the family announce the sudden passing of our sister Carolyn McIntyre on June 14, 2010 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida where she resided. Carolyn was born on August 7, 1967 in Glace Bay to the late Joan (Somerton) and Fabian McIntyre. She was survived by her sister Kathy (Paul) Stanford (Dartmouth, NS), sister Denise McIntyre (London, ON) and brother Fabian (Julie) McIntyre (Orlando, Fl). She was the aunt to nieces Laura and Morgan, and nephews Jason, Mark and Matthew. Carolyn graduated from St. Michael’s High School and attended Dalhousie University, Miss Murphy’s Business College, Assiniboine Community College and Gold Coast School of Real Estate. In the past 10 years Carolyn had great success in Real Estate Sales in Florida. Prior to her career in real estate Carolyn had a successful career in news broadcasting throughout Canada and the US. Carolyn will be remembered for her vivacious spirit, smile, laughter, and love for life. A private family viewing followed by cremation took place in Ft. Lauderdale. On August 21st. at 2pm a service will take place at the family gravesite in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

"@Brigette Fustey It was quite a shock to everyone. So sad to lose such a vibrant lively free spirit. I went to grade school with Carolyn and we lived close to each other. I think of her often as well, how could you not? Carolyn had a way to make everyone around giggle. I am sorry for your loss. https://www.facebook.com/#!/carolyn.mcintyre.54?fref=ts"
"I have searched for Carolyn many many times as we have lost touch over the years and I think about her often. When I do I search and could not find her on Facebook, etc. Today was a day when I thought of her again and did a search except I looked at photos this time. To my shock, it brought me to a memorial page. I am so sorry for your loss."
"Happy Birthday Carolyn, Today is Dad's special day too. God Bless :)"
"Today would have been your 45th birthday and I would have called to ask how it feels to be halfway to 90.....I stopped by and visited you and Ma last Wednesday. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you. Love Always Fabian"
