MARGARET ARLENE MCINTOSH APRIL 22, 1929 - MAY 18, 2014 Margaret passed away peacefully in her sleep Sunday morning, May 18, 2014 after a very full and rewarding life. She was born in Cherokee, Iowa and met the love of her life, John McIntosh, a native Santa Fean during their college summer break in Estes Park, Colorado. Once married, she and John settled in Santa Fe and raised their family. After the children were grown, most of the remaining winters were spent playing tennis in Mesa, Arizona. Tennis was Margaret's passion which continued to energize her throughout her life. She was the New Mexico Senior Tennis Champion in 1993 and attained 4th place in the National competition that same year. She taught many children to swim and coached the Santa Fe Dolphins Swim Team from 1968 to 1970. She was a founding member of the first P.E.O. Chapter in Santa Fe. Margaret was a fun-loving, spirited adventuress. She was preceded in death by her older sister Marian Karsjens. She is survived by her husband John McIntosh, her twin brother Milford Fleig, her 3 children; Jill McIntosh, Sharon (Calvin) London, Don (Chris) McIntosh, and the 3 London grandchildren that were the light of her life. Margie's kindness, generosity and sense of humor left a positive impression on all who knew her. She kept a special place in her heart for all creatures and always had beloved pets at her side.
