Longtime Yreka resident Nadine Lea McIntyre, 85, passed away May 31, 2023 after battling with Parkinson’s for several years. She was born March 6, 1938 in Fallon, Nevada to Ralph and Ada Miller.

Nadine will be remembered by her family as an exceptional and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. She is survived by her husband of 67 years, Allen McIntyre; sister, Cleta Boyd of Brookings, OR; sons Ronald (Barbara) of South Prairie, WA, Keith (Daphne) of Hinckley, OH, Michael of Meridian, ID, Dennis (Mary Ellen) of Elk Grove, CA; her beloved 6 grandchildren, Ashley Vaughn (Mason), Matthew, Travis, Derek (Elexa), Jordan, Jacob and her 2 great grandchildren Maddux and Hayden Vaughn, with whom she spent as much time as possible. She is predeceased by her sister Lucille Dunn of Modesto.

She graduated from Butte Valley High School in Dorris. Upon graduation she married Al McIntyre. Nadine was employed by the Yreka Elementary School District for 26 years, starting as a playground supervisor and ending her career as the district secretary.

Hobbies and joys included bowling, fishing, camping and attending her son’s sporting events. She would always state that there was no better drug than catching a big salmon, or watching her grandchildren do the same.

There is not enough room in this paper to record all the good times, good friends and good family gatherings that have occurred over the years. A life well lived. Nadine, we will miss you.

A celebration of life will be held at Girdner Funeral Chapel, 202 S. Oregon St., Yreka, on Saturday, June 10, 2023 at 1:00 PM.

    Nadine was a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful woman in the district office. She always knew what to do, how and when to do it, and was happy to help newbies feel at home. Her kindness will never be forgotten.
