Mrs. L.E. McIntosh Died Thursday
Funeral Rites Here Friday

Mrs. Lewis E. McIntosh, 73, died at her home on North Court Street in the early hours of Thursday morning following an illness of several years. She had been in declining health for some time, her condition having become critical several weeks ago.

The former Miss Lila Thompson, a member of a prominent and important Georgia family, she was born July 10, 1883, in Savannah, GA, a daughter of the late Wall Tattnall Thompson and Josephine Wade Thompson. The family moved to Quitman many years ago when she a young child and they were among the most foremost families here, occupying a place of prominence in business, religious and cultural circles.

Mrs. McIntosh had been a member of the Quitman Presbyterian Church for many years and to her church she gave a particular devotion, being active in its work until ill health necessitated her retirement. She and her husband, the late Lewis E. McIntosh, had been generous with their efforts, time and philanthropic gifts and only two weeks ago a beautiful stained glass window in the church auditorium was dedicated to Mr. McIntosh, a memorial gift from his widow.

In earlier years she has been active in social and cultural activities here and her passing last week has saddened the hearts of many friends.

She is survived by a brother, Peyton W. Thompson of Waynesboro, GA and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were held Friday morning at 11 a.m. from the residence with Rev. Thomas J. White and Rev. F.H. McElroy conducting. Interment followed at Oak Hill Cemetery where she was laid to rest beside her husband who died June 16, 1956. The Maxwell-Eason Company had charge of arrangements.

Active pallbearers were W.J. Hewett, Donald Taylor, Audie Lowe, Dr. John McGoogan, J.W. Rieley, Spencer Bennet. Honorary pallbearers were Denmark Groover, J.M. Heeth, W.M. English, Dr. L.M. Shealey, Warde Chambers, W.W. Williams, P.a. Tanner, A.E. Williams and J.C. Baker.
