July 27, 1930 — Dec. 25, 2014
Cynthia S. MacIntosh of Hayward passed away on the day of her savior’s birth, at age 84, surrounded by her loving family at her bedside. She was born July 27, 1930, in Oconomowoc. Her parents, C. Turner (Ty) and Dorothea J. (Dottie) Stone, preceded her in death. After graduating from Oconomowoc High School 1948, she attended Ripon College for two years. She transferred to National College of Education in Evanston, Ill., where she received her bachelor’s degree in teaching in 1952. After college, she married her high school sweetheart, Donald J. MacIntosh, on June 28, 1952, at Zion Episcopal Church in Oconomowoc. They lived in Evanston, Ill., immediately after their marriage and then various Midwest locations throughout her life. Cyndy and Don retired to Grindstone Lake, Hayward, in 1991, to be in the midst of wildlife and beautiful lake area all year long. Their home sits on the shore of Grindstone Lake surrounded by deer and bird feeders that bring an abundance of wildlife.
Cyndy was accomplished in many areas, working as a teacher, a bookkeeper and a homemaker. Involved in numerous organizations, she volunteered as a librarian, the hospital auxiliary, meal-on-wheels, and was very active in her Episcopal church. She was an active member of PEO Chapter DM. She was an avid reader, a New York Times crossword expert, a fabulous cook, a talented crafter of knitting, crewel and cross stitching and the one you wanted on your Trivial Pursuit team.

Turner (Susan) Stone Jr. of Bailey’s Harbor; children, Susan MacIntosh of St. Paul, Minn., Kevin (Kristen) Mac-Intosh of Plymouth Minn., and Mary Jo (Allen) Carrell of Shenandoah, Iowa; six grandchildren, Katie (Joe), Laura, Drew (Marie), Sam (Ellie), Natalie and Turner; and three great-grandchildren, Will and Chloe (Katie), and Henry (Drew).
