Mary K. (Mahler) McIntosh, 85 of Evansville, Indiana passed away peacefully at home on June 24, 2019. She was born on November 19, 1933 in Evansville, Indiana.
Mary was a baker and enjoyed cooking. Her specialties were dinner rolls and pies. Marys skills with baking pies were amazing. She took on a career as a baker not only for her church, but also for The Weinbach Café and The Pie Pan of Evansville, Indiana. Yes, all of the delicious pies we enjoyed were made by Marys’ hands for nearly 30 years. There is no recipe because she baked according to how the dough felt in her hands. She would make pies and dinner rolls yearly for her church’s sausage supper, St. Pauls United Church of Christ. Her personal favorite was Strawberry pie.
Her hobbies ranged from quilting, going to the casino, attending concerts with family and above all else BINGO, especially playing at Leisure Living. Mary came home a winner every time she played (mostly at the VFW).
When Mary was young she was raised mostly by her grandmother, Barbara Rausch and attended St. Bonifice Church and School. As Mary grew up she also took on the role of caretaker and raised her brother and sisters. Mary will be deeply missed by her entire family and many friends.
