Mary Louise Pieroni McIntosh, 92, of Lake Village died Sept. 22 surrounded by family.

Mary was born in 1930 to her parents, August and GigiaSampolesi Pieroni. The oldest of seven children, she grew up in Lake Village before moving to Memphis as a young woman, where she met and married her husband of fifty years, Harold F. McIntosh, Jr., and raised two children of her own.  

A homemaker most of her life, Mary was an avid gardener and enjoyed volunteering in her spare time. She dedicated much of her time in service to St. Louis Catholic Church, where she was a parishioner from the church’s founding until she and Harold returned home to Lake Village in 1985. Mary’s unwavering dedication to her faith continued as a parishioner at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church where she was a member of the altar society, a Eucharistic Minister, volunteered her time visiting the sick and participated in other charitable work.

A true matriarch, Mary was fiercely devoted to her family and was an impeccable example of faith, humility, love, and grace. She is missed beyond measure, but all who knew and continue to love her are comforted by treasured memories that will be forever held in our hearts.
