A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 8, for Jeannie Goodman McIntosh, who died on August 2, 2018, in Vineyard Haven.

Born in 1947 in Cincinnati, Ohio, her family had deep roots on the Vineyard. Her great-grandmother Anna Ferris, a relation to the Norton family, first settled on East Chop in the early 1900s, and her grandfather Harvey Knowles attended the Tisbury School. In 1940, Mr. Knowles bought the Draper Cottage at the end of West Chop, still owned by the family today. His daughter Jean Goodman and her husband Weir Goodman built next door after the war, where Jeannie spent every summer of her childhood.

Vineyard Haven had been Jeannie’s permanent home since the 1980s, but over her lifetime she had made homes in Cincinnati, Ohio, Southern Pines, N.C., Fairfield, Conn., and Key West, Fla. as well. An avid rider since childhood, she built a 70-acre horse farm and raised thoroughbred horses for racing in North Carolina. Jeannie brought her southern love of antiques to the Vineyard and opened Bogart and Company, a one-of-a-kind furniture store, in the 1990s. She was an enthusiastic contributor to the Gazette and collaborated with her husband, cartoonist Jon McIntosh, on many Vineyard political cartoons. She passionately supported Sail MV every year and contributed significantly to charities in Key West, her winter home.

Jeannie’s happiest days were spent fishing and sailing in the sound, and gardening, cooking, entertaining and beaching on her Island homes. Family and friends will remember her for her vibrant humorous spirit, creativity, passion for animals and deep love of Island life.

She is survived by her daughters, Buffy Trott Hanschka and Hays Trott Blinckmann, and two grandchildren.

The service will be at noon at the West Chop Club, with a reception to follow.

Donations can be made to Sail MV or the Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard.
