1925 – 2015

AUBURN — Dorothy A. McIntosh, 90, of Lisbon passed away at Clover Manor Health Care in Auburn on Sunday, June 14.

She was born in Lisbon Center on April 7, 1925, the daughter of Ernest and Anna (Toth) Ouellette. Dorothy married her husband, Burton McIntosh, on Aug. 22, 1944, and they were married for 63 years before he passed in July 2008. Together, they raised their family of two sons and a daughter. She worked at the Farnsworth and Worumbo mills, as well as 18 years at Geiger before her retirement in 1987.

Dorothy loved cooking, having the family over for meals and getting to visit with the grandchildren. She would frequently talk about her ancestral French and Czechoslovakian heritage, of which she was extremely proud. Swimming, dancing and music were Dorothy’s true loves, which she often used to entertain her guests. Before losing her husband, they would make weekend trips to the Samoset Resort, Down East Maine and New Brunswick, or she could be found taking rides around her hometown, visiting sentimental locations. Dorothy was also an avid shopper, spending time looking for the right items to add to her collection or gifts for her family.

She is survived by three children, son, Dennis and Carmen McIntosh of New Gloucester, daughter, Janice McIntosh of Woolwich, and son, Blinn and his wife, Corinne McIntosh, of Lewiston; a brother, Ernest and his wife, Lucille Ouellette, of Auburn; two sisters, Madeline Junkins of Lisbon Falls and Claudette Karkos of Virginia; seven grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.

Dorothy was predeceased by her husband, Burton; five sisters, Jeanette, Frances, Laurette, Martha and Constance; and a brother, Raymond.
