Nicole McIntire

July 21, 1993 — January 27, 2022

FITCHBURG/ CHARLTON: Nicole S. McIntire, 28, of Fitchburg, formerly of Charlton, passed away on January 27, 2022.

She leaves behind her parents James McIntire and his wife, Brenda, of Scituate, RI; her mother, Amy (Norton) McIntire of Worcester; her sister, Caitlin McIntire of Dudley, MA; a sister, Kelly (McIntire) Feiz of Holden; and her three brothers: Jimmy McIntire of Danielson, CT, Jesse McIntire of Holden, MA, and Michael McIntire of Dayville, CT. She also leaves behind her grandmother, Barbara Norton, of Paxton, MA, along with several cousins, aunts and uncles.

She was predeceased by her beloved Uncle Bobby, Uncle Pete, her paternal grandparents and maternal grandfather.

Nicole graduated from Shepherd Hill High School, class of 2011, and was a member of the National Honor Society. After high school, she attended the University of Montana/Missoula for a year. Her original plan was to be a Wildlife Biologist. After returning to the area, she earned her Associate’s Degree from Quinsigamond Community College and completed two Certificates in Animal Welfare in a bid to become an Animal Control Officer.

While most recently she was an administrative assistant, she also held positions as a Vet Tech for several local veterinary businesses – animal welfare was always her abiding love. She was particularly fond of dogs and was interested in the preservation of wolves. Nicole also loved to read, scrapbook, and label things incessantly with a label maker. Her desire to help others was so strong that she happily volunteered at Special Olympics as a youngster with her family, at Ronald McDonald House in Missoula, at Forgeworks Farms Equine Therapy in Rutland, and at Second Chance Animal Shelter in E. Brookfield. She was a loving soul who was known to give homeless folks warm blankets, and to arrange clothing donations for a women’s shelter in Fitchburg.

Nicole struggled with mental health issues since young adulthood and was not able to bounce back from the buffetings this life handed out. Yet she was always concerned with making an impact, often sticking up for the underdog and coming to the defense of the defenseless. She was a fierce and loyal friend.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the Wolf Conservation Center of South Salem, NY in her name (email:
