McINTYRE, MYRTLE - It is with a great sense of loss that we announce the passing of our dear mother and grandmother Myrtle May McIntyre (Buckler) wife of the late Hector McIntyre. Myrtle left us on March 18, 2012 at the Moncton Hospital following a lengthy illness. Born in Tatamagouche, NS, on March 25, 1927, she was the daughter of the late Stiles and Hilda (Stevenson) Buckler. Myrtle will forever be remembered for her dedication to her family, her grand sense of humour, her great sense of style and her culinary skills. Her favorite place to be was at the cottage in Dixon Point, where she spent many springs and summers with family, friends and relatives. Myrtle will be missed by her daughter, Lynn McIntyre of Calgary, AB; her daughter-in-law, Louise (late David) of Dieppe; her son-in-law, Peter Wheeler (late Colleen) of Calgary, AB; five granddaughters:

Myrtle was predeceased by her husband Hector (2002), daughter Colleen (2001), son David (2006), great-grandson Trevon (2004), sisters: Jean Crawford-Lane and Doris Buckler; brothers: Murdoch Morrison and Harold Buckler.
