Alice L. McIntire

Homemaker co-owned farm, was tax collector

GREENVILLE — Alice L. McIntire of Jackson Center passed away peacefully of natural causes with her daughter and friends by her side at 7:14 p.m. Monday, June 16, 2014, in UPMC Horizon, Greenville. She was 92.

Born Oct. 5, 1921, in Mercer, Mrs. McIntire was a daughter of Carl L. and Pearl N. Euard Swartz.

She attended the former Stone Pile Country School and then graduated from Mercer High School in 1940.

Alice was a homemaker and along with her husband owned and operated a dairy farm in Jackson Township for many years. She loved the farm and worked very hard in all aspects of farming, including milking and field work. She tended to the farm up to the present day, always seen out working in the yard and along the fence row, using a corn knife in early years to keep down weeds and in later years using a weed eater for the task.

For many years, she and her husband had a huge garden they would work together.

She loved taking care of all the animals and will be missed by her pet cat, Socks. She enjoyed doing crossword and word search puzzles.

Alice loved to visit and enjoyed the many folks who would stop by for a chat on the porch. She always had a smile and a kind word.

She succeeded her husband as Jackson Township tax collector, for a combined total of 27 years.

For many years, she had been a member of Jackson Center Presbyterian Church.

Her husband, David Frederick "Fritz" McIntire, whom she married April 7, 1942, preceded her in death Aug. 24, 1990.

She is survived by her loving daughter, Shirley A. "The Retired Mail Lady" McIntire, at home.

Besides her husband, her parents, two sisters and three brothers preceded her in death.


Mrs. David Frederick "Fritz" (Alice L.), 92, Jackson Center.
