McIntosh, Jean E., Saginaw, Michigan


Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away with her family by her side. She was 85 years old. Jean E. St. John was born on March 3, 1926 in Jackson, Michigan to the late Laverne and Mabel (West) St. John. She married Robert W. McIntosh on July 7, 1946 in Jackson, Michigan. Jean graduated from Jackson High School and attended Hillsdale College. Jean truly was a wonderful person with an excellent sense of humor and she treasured the times spent with family and friends. She was a member of First United Methodist Church of Saginaw and Maple Hill Golf Club in Hemlock. She enjoyed golfing, traveling, and playing bridge.
