Miss Ida M. McIntosh, sister of Mrs. William S. Harding, 105 Wallace avenue, with whom she had made her home for several years, died at 9 o'clock, Thursday night, following a stroke of paralysis which she suffered just a week ago. Miss McIntosh however, had been in declining health for some time. Miss McIntosh was one of three daughters born to William H. McIntosh, early residents of Waveland. Her father, who operated farms in the Waveland vicinity, was a leading citizen there. He was a Civil War veteran who served throughout the war, as a member of General Lew Wallace's 11th Indiana regiment. Miss McIntosh attended the Waveland schools and then took a business course in the State Normal School at Fort Wayne, from which she graduated. She was employed in clerical work with the Indianapolis Light and Heat company for eight years. Later for a period of eighteen years, she was with Eli Lilly and Company, in a responsible position at their Indianapolis plant. Ill health forced her return to Crawfordsville, a few years ago, since which time she has lived in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harding. Miss McIntosh was a charter member of the Business and Professional Women's club of Indianapolis. She also held membership in the Methodist Episcopal church in Waveland. Surviving is her sister, Mrs. Maude Harding. The other sister, Jeannette McIntosh, preceded her in death a number of years ago. Dr. Howard Taylor, minister at the First Methodist church in Crawfordsville, will conduct the funeral services in her memory that will be held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harding, 105 Wallace avenue, at 2:30 o'clock, Saturday afternoon. Burial will be made in the Masonic cemetery here. - thanks to Kim H
