Born October 26, 1925, in State Center, Iowa, Mildred Katheryn McIntosh was the daughter of Paul and Grace (Cowan) Smith. She graduated from Maxwell High School in 1943, then attended beauty school and opened her own beauty shop in Maxwell. On May 13, 1963, she married Dale Richard McIntosh at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa.
In earlier years, Mildred helped with the Girl Scouts and played on the Maxwell softball team. She was active in the community and volunteered much of her time serving at the Community Historical Society and the American Legion Auxiliary. Mildred was artistic and enjoyed making ceramic dolls and other projects, many of which she gifted to family and friends. Music played a big role in her life and Mildred especially enjoyed get-togethers with her family to play the piano and share musical talents.
