September 20, 1922 – January 25, 2021
Audrey Marion McIntosh went to be with the Lord on January 25, 2021 at the age of 98 years. She will be remembered and sadly missed by her loving husband David; children Christopher of Victoria, Ian (Christine) of Summerland, and Nan (Rick) Cogbill of Summerland; grandchildren Sarah (Gordon) Hawkes, Laura (David) Fairfield, Steven (Destini) Cogbill, Carmen McIntosh, and Spencer McIntosh; and great grandchildren Emma, Theodore and Desmond Hawkes, and Chloe and Jasper Fairfield.
Audrey was born on September 20, 1922 in Scarborough, Ontario, the second of four children and only daughter of Victor and Elfrieda Smith. She was predeceased by her parents and brothers Maurice, Don, and Ken.
After finishing high school, Audrey worked for her father at the J.F. Hartz Co. in Toronto until she married David McIntosh in 1951. They moved west and settled in Summerland where they raised their family and lived for 69 years together.
Audrey was an industrious homemaker. She was an accomplished knitter and seamstress, did beautiful handiwork, canned fruit from the family orchard, and was well known for making the best pies. She loved to swim in Okanagan Lake which she continued to do into her early nineties.
In their retirement years, she and David took up bird watching which they enjoyed with the S. Okanagan Naturalist Club as well as on their many travels.
Over the years, Audrey was active in the Summerland Baptist Church having a keen interest in the Mission Circle, and in later years attended Lakeside Presbyterian Church and Summerland United Church. She was also involved with the Fall Fair, and with sewing costumes for the Singers & Players’ Gilbert and Sullivan productions in the 1960’s.
Audrey loved her family greatly, always offering support and lending a helping hand. She was so proud of her grandchildren, always interested in hearing their news and attending their piano recitals, theatre productions, dance competitions, band concerts, and other events. She was a faithful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Hers was a life well lived and she will be sorely missed.
