(Owen Sound Sun-Times) - Death came suddenly on Tuesday evening about 10 o'clock to Mrs. A.L. McIntyre, a resident of Owen Sound for over 50 years. She was in her 83rd year and passed away at her home, 1342 Fourth Avenue West. Mrs. McIntyre had not been in the best of health for several years, but had maintained a keen interest in life and had been around as usual until a few hours before her death.
Mrs. McIntyre, who was formerly Mary Jane Fleming, was born in Derby Township on February 21, 1859 the eldest daughter of the late John Fleming, a pioneer settler, and spent her girlhood in that township. On Dec. 23, 1878, she was married to A.L. McIntyre and after spending several years at Mulmer and Mattawa, Ont., they came to Owen Sound in 1890. With the exception of a few years in Listowel, and several winters spent with her sister, Mrs. Murphy, in Alliston, Mrs. McIntyre has lived in Owen Sound ever since.
Devoted to her home and family, Mrs. McIntyre lived very quietly, but she was always interested in community affairs and during the Great War and this was active in Red Cross and other work. Her sterling qualities of heart and mind won her many close friends and her memory will remain the choice possession of all who knew her. She was a faithful member of the Disciples Church.
Mrs. McIntyre was predeceased by her husband in 1912, and she is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Stewart Young, Regina, Sask.; and a son, Dr. A.F. McIntyre, of Grimsby. A daughter, Mrs. F. Carthew, and a son, Melville M. McIntyre, Chicago, predeceased her.
