WHITE CREEK, N.Y. -- Amy MacIntosh Barnewall, 89, died in the early morning hours of Thursday, Dec. 20, 2007, at her beloved Shaker Hill Farm after a courageous, unwavering battle with cancer. She was the wife of John Barnewell.

Born Sept. 26, 1918, in Passaic, N.J., she was the daughter of James S. and Amy L. (Jurgensen) MacIntosh. After graduating from high school she attended Goucher College.

She and John were married on Oct. 2, 1941. They lived in New Jersey where Amy was very active in Republican politics. Her proudest moment was representing New Jersey at the 1960 Republican Convention in Chicago.

In the early 1960s, the family moved to upstate New York and settled at Shaker Hill Farm, which had been the family’s summer place.

She was a member of the Germaine Methodist Church in White Creek.

Amy loved animals and was very active in the Tri County Holstein Club. In her younger years she enjoyed sailing, skiing and gardening. She was a great sports fan, her favorite teams being the Mets and the Giants. She liked to knit and do crossword puzzles.

Recently she enjoyed watching sit-coms and shopping with QVC.

Not liking the cold, but staying north until the leaves fell, Amy and John wintered in Surfside, S. C.

She is predeceased by a grandson, James A. Barnewell Jr.; a brother, Stanton MacIntosh; and recently, her beloved dog Toby.

Along with her husband of 66 years, she is survived by two sons and their wives, John S. (Chip) and Ginny Barnewall of Chateaugay Lake, N.Y., and Pawley’s Island, S.C. and James A. and Barbara Barnewall of White Creek; five grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter.

Friends and relatives are invited to call on Saturday, Dec. 22, 2007, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Ackley & Ross Funeral Home, 73 West Main St., Cambridge.

A graveside service conducted by the Rev. Paul Baker will take place on Sunday, Dec. 23, 2007, at 10 a.m. at Center White Creek Cemetery.

The family request’s that memorial donations be made to Friends of Hospice, 415 Lower Main St., Hudson Falls, NY 12839 or Second Chance Animal Shelter, 6879 Vt. Route 7A, Shaftsbury, VT 05262.
