Jessie G. Macintosh

November 25, 1922 – February 21, 2022
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jessie Gray Macintosh (nee MacIndoe) at Mills Memorial Hospital after a brief Covid-19 infection.
Jessie was born in Drumheller, Alberta to Catherine Barr Stewart MacIndoe and David Caskie MacIndoe. She was one of five children. The family moved to Vancouver in 1934 when Jessie was in Junior High and attended Templeton School. She graduated from Britannia High in Vancouver in 1941.
Jessie married James Miller Macintosh in 1949 and in 1956 the family moved to Prince George. A second and last move was to Terrace in 1963. Jessie worked part time while raising her family, first for E.B. Horsman and Son and she ended her working life as an instructor of Business Education at Northwest Community College.
Jessie loved her family, especially her grandchildren. She loved music, sewing and knitting. She loved summer camping vacations and travel. Jessie was an avid reader and was grateful for the wonderful service provided to her in her later years by the Terrace Public Library.
Jessie was a lifetime member of Thornhill Chapter #85 OES in Terrace and Nechako Chapter #40 in Prince George. She was also a proud member of Daughters of the Nile.
She spent a great deal of time raising money for Cancer Research, being a survivor of multiple diagnoses of cancer herself. She was a role model for others and acted as a mentor for other cancer patients. For many years she also helped to make cancer dressings for patients in the Northwest and for others in BC.
Survived by her daughter, Catherine Macintosh (Lambright) of Terrace, her granddaughters, Jessica Lambright (Ben Dungait) Perth, Australia; Deana Gardner (Dave) Terrace; Christa (Lee) McColman, Parkland County, Alberta; her great-grandchildren Aiden and Asher Gardner; Phoenix, Shyla and Leif McColman, brother-in-law Lance Butler (Judy) Nanaimo.
She is also survived by her nephews Randy Butler and Chuck MacIndoe, and nieces Geri Smith, Linda Hall, Lori MacIndoe, Valerie Anderson and Pat Wilson.
Jessie is predeceased by her husband James Miller Macintosh, son Grant Alexander Macintosh, her brothers George, David, and Tom MacIndoe, her sister Margaret Butler, and her sisters-in-law Betty and Alberta MacIndoe.
In lieu of flowers, if you wish to make a donation in Jessie’s memory, please consider a donation to the BC Cancer Agency or the Terrace Public Library.
A Celebration of Life will be held May 7, 2022 at her home in Terrace.Obituary
