Sharon Lee McIntyre

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.

    When my husband Johnny Batts, (Chris' Brother) saw her he commented on what a beautiful lady she was. I responded back if you think she's beautiful now you should have seen her senior picture I happened to see on facebook. Not only was she beautiful she was "movie star gorgeous" Her outer beauty was only surpassed by her inner beauty, she truly had the greatest gift of all the gift of "unconditional LOVE and forgiveness" I had the privilege of reading one of her books...Not only was she a gifted author but she edited books for some famous high profile authors.. But her husband and children would quickly admit that she'll be missed probably mostly for her 'UNCONDITIONAL LOVE' and being quick to forgive. She will be realty missed ! She set a wonderful example of the secrets to a successful family and marriage.. God Bless all of you. You are in our prayers !
