Sharon Lee McIntyre

April 12, 1953 - July 13, 2017

Sharon Lee McIntyre, 64 of Burgaw, NC took her last earthly breath peacefully at her home on the Mac Farm, with her son Jody holding her hand, Thursday morning, July 13th, 2017.

She was born on April 12, 1953 to Anna Lee Geatz and Willard “Andy” Ambrose in Cumberland, MD.

She married her high school sweetheart and the love of her life of 47 years, David Randall “Randy” McIntyre during a snow blizzard on New Year’s Eve, December 31st, 1970, and he survives.

Also surviving are her two daughters, Brandi McIntyre Lilley of Wilmington, NC and Stacy McIntyre Batts (Chris) of Hampstead, NC and one son Jody Randall McIntyre of Burgaw, NC, Two grandson’s, Ryan Lilley and Anthony Lilley, one granddaughter Samantha Lilley and one Step-Granddaughter, Brianna Batts, all of Wilmington.

Among many of her accomplishments while on this earth, she is known best for her love and compassion for all animals, including her own horses, mules, donkeys and their black Labrador “Jesse”. She loved spending time caring and loving them all at the Mac Farm in Burgaw until her last days. She was an amazing friend to all that had the pleasure of knowing her and a tremendous messenger of God to us all. Sharon will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. Her talent and passion for writing and the infinite love she had for the Holy Spirit of Christmas inspired several published Christmas Tea and Christmas Tea with Angels books that will forever be embedded in our minds and hearts.  May we all aspire to live by the example she has set as she was the very definition of unconditional love and the way God intends someone to live their life. We will forever be blessed just by knowing her.

What our families say...

“Michael Gubista took over the care of my husband and oversaw all of the services. He explained everything thoroughly and he even added some personal touches of his own and welcomed all the attendees that were very meaningful and thoughtful. He really listened to me and provided excellent support at an extremely difficult time.” – Barbara L.
