Geraldine (Gerry) McIntosh, of West Harrison, Indiana, passed away Wednesday, September 12th, 2018, at the age of 91. She was born on March 10th, 1927, to the late Bill and Avis Crowley. Gerry grew up in Henryville, Indiana and graduated from Henryville High School in 1945.
She opened and managed the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant, in Harrison, Ohio, in 1977, where she developed a love for Colonel Sanders and his original recipe. She also managed the seafood department at the Harrison Kroger until she retired in 1998.
In 2001, Gerry moved to the North Dearborn Village Retirement Apartments where she was involved in several operations at the Village Center: managing the gift shop, planting flowers, playing dominos, and more. She loved listening to classic country: Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, and Conway Twitty were some of her favorites. At age 18, she bought her first Harley Davidson motorcycle, and talked about riding again, up until the day she passed. She was a lover of her garden, Skyline chili, CNN, and her family.
Gerry is survived by 3 children: Teresa (Larry) Arnold, of Harrison, Ohio; Jim (Anne) McIntosh, of Harrison, Ohio; Joe Ed McIntosh Jr. of Austin, Indiana; 6 grandchildren: Morgan McClure, Bo and Brett McIntosh, Ronald Walker Jr., Jennifer Pearson, and Darlene Tomasura; 1 sister: Maggie Young; nieces, nephews, and her cat, Louie.
She is preceded in death by her parents, son, Bill McIntosh, son, Ronald Walker, and sisters, Evelyn and Lavon.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
