Luanne Marie McIntosh, born May 19, 1952, passed away suddenly on Monday, April 20, 2020 all too soon in a Cape Coral, Florida hospital. Born in Erie, Pa., and raised in North East, Pa., Luanne graduated from North East High School in 1970, and later went on to receive her Associates Degree in Business from Gannon University. She worked at Welch’s as a Customer Satisfaction Leader and Shipping Logistics Clerk for more than 36 years. Luanne was loving, loyal, fun seeking, and always enjoyed her friends and family immensely. She thoroughly enjoyed many sports including years playing in the North East Women’s Softball League and then on to be an avid golfer. During her many years golfing, it was witnessed and recorded that she got four “hole in ones”. She was very active in her community, being involved in the Women’s Choral Club, North East Fuller Hose Auxiliary for 35 years, and the American Legion Post #105 Auxiliary, for 34 years. Luanne was and is loved by her husband Richard for over 42 years. She is preceded in death by her older brother Michael Dohanic, and survived by her sister, Susie Anderson (Jerry Strobel), daughter Kelli McIntosh Hughes (Thomas), grandchildren Joshua Hughes and Loren Hillard, great-granddaughter Selena Hillard; brother-in-laws, Don McIntosh (Elly), Terry McIntosh (Carolyn); nephews, Steve Anderson (Wendy), John McIntosh (Andrea), Shawn McIntosh, Jason McIntosh, nieces Lynette Anderson, Heather McIntosh, and great-nephews Brandon and Dylan Murphy; and great-nieces, Casey and Katelyn McIntosh. Due to the Covid-19, there will be a private Graveside Service. There will be a celebration of life at a later date. The family kindly requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her honor to American Legion Auxiliary Post #105, Fuller Hose Auxiliary, or North East Community Nurses. Funeral arrangements are being handled by the William D. Elkin Funeral Home, 65 S Lake Street, North East. Please send condolences to elkinfh.com.

We are heartbroken to learn of Luanne’s passing. She was a kind, generous, and loving person. Gretchen and I had many good times with Luanne.

Dick and Kelly, Sue, and all the other members of Luanne's family. My deepest sympathy to all. Difficult to believe that Luanne is no longer with all of us. Such a sad time for family and Luanne's many friends. I'd like to share a bit of humor that I will always remember. At Dick and Luanne's wedding reception, the three of us were chatting and Dick (more than a little inebriated) proudly proclaimed that he would never forget their wedding anniversary because it was the day before Easter! Luanne and I were laughing uncontrollably!!!!! I know we all will remember her smiling face and she will forever be in our hearts. Sincerely, Patti

What a wonderful lady. She will be sadly missed by a) and the American Legion post 105 family.

   Posted Tue April 28, 2020
As you may know, Luanne was on the planning committee for our 50th class reunion. The few of us who met had the pleasure of reliving some high school moments and laughed a lot. It was as if little time had passed since 1970 - the gift of being with people who have known you for so long. We are grateful to have shared that time with Luanne. We grieve her passing and pray you and your family see the reflection of her spirit in all your tears.

I was so saddened to hear this and still can't believe it. I was so lucky to have worked with Luann for years, but even luckier to be her friend. She was funny, loving and loyal. She will be missed. Heaven gained an angel. Love my friend!
