Beloved Mother and Nana
Anne MacIntosh, 63, of Venice Florida, passed away quietly on Sunday, February 27th. Her final days were spent surrounded by her family who loved her very much.
She was born on September 10, 1947 in Ridgewood, NJ and was the daughter of Elizabeth Hofmayer Post and the late Thomas Stuart Post, Sr. Anne graduated from Ridgewood High School in 1965 and received her Bachelor's Degree in Education from Lesley College in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1969. Before starting her family, Anne taught elementary school in Michigan and won a prestigious Teacher of the Year award for her dedication and commitment to her students. Later in her career, Anne brought this same enthusiasm and love to her Special Needs students whom she treasured. She was involved in countless volunteer activities throughout her life including intercity special programs, Special Olympics, Girl Scout Leadership, hospice, and many other compassionate causes.
Anne is survived by her husband, Douglas J. MacIntosh of Venice, FL and her beloved children Tammy Lynne Davis Frasca and her husband James of Easton, PA, Virginia Anne MacIntosh of Sarasota, FL and Scott William MacIntosh of Sarasota, FL. She was adored by her grandchildren, Ryan Clayton, Joseph James, and Kaitlyn Anne Frasca. She is also survived by her brother, Thomas Stuart Post, Jr and his wife Nancy and their children.
The family wants to express a special thank you to Wendy who provided Anne with compassionate care and so much more during her illness and became like family to her. Anne will be remembered for her generous heart and giving spirit. Anne was happiest when she was helping others and she touched the lives of so many. Anne adored her children and grandchildren and received such joy in their happiness. Her passing will cause a tremendous void and she will be missed dearly. We love you Mom.
