It is with deep sadness that we regret to announce the passing of Betty MacIntosh on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney with her loving family at her side. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

Besides her parents, Betty was predeceased by her husband, Myles MacIntosh; sons, Sylvester, Myles (Joyce) and Dan (Mary); sister, Margie and a brother, Leslie.
