Agnes G. Matthews

March 10, 1926February 15, 2021

On Monday, February 15, 2021 surrounded by those who love her, Agnes Matthews passed away at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born on March 10, 1926, Aggie was the daughter of the late Dan and Agnes (Kerr) MacIntosh of Boularderie.

Aggie graduated from Empire Business School in Sydney. She went on to hold to several positions in Sydney and later in Dartmouth, NS as a bookkeeper. Earlier in life, Aggie enjoyed gardening; genealogy; and traveling with her husband. After her retirement she returned to Sydney to be close to what was most important to her: family. More than anything, Aggie treasured the time she spent with her son, grandsons, and great-grandchildren.

Aggie was a loving and loyal wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.

She is survived by her son, William MacIntosh (Mary); her grandchildren Tim (Doreen) and Derek (Kim), all of Sydney as well as many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Besides her parents, Aggie was predeceased by her loving husband, Patrick Matthews (Dartmouth); grandson, Robert (Sydney); her sisters Christine, Sadie, Effie, Jean; and her brothers Angus and John.

A sincere thank you is extended to the nurses and physicians at Palliative Care who provided support, care and compassion to her and her family.

Cremation has taken place under the direction of T W Curry Parkview Chapel. A celebration of life will be arranged for a later date. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family by visiting

To honour Aggie’s life, memorial donations may be made to an organization that specializes in animal welfare.

Our sincere condolences going out to all the family at this very sad time. Aggie was an elegant lady, one who concealed her age without effort. Always looking and acting much younger than her birth certificate stated. Aggie was well versed and could easily blend in with various age groups and keep the conversation going well beyond the knowledge of the room. It was always a pleasure being in her company and we will miss the many laughs we had with her. Hugs and love going out to the many people feeling the pain of Aggie’s passing. Love Anita & Junior

My deepest condolences to Bill and family. I first met Agnes when we worked together in Halifax. She was a very special and caring lady who provided 'motherly' advice to me over the years. I will miss our chats.
