A kind word, a welcome hand and a wonderful smile marked the long ministerial career of the Rev. Marvin Wayne McIntosh.

The Rev. McIntosh, 64, died on Monday, June 12, in Scottsburg after several years of failing health. But he never stopped smiling.

Marvin was a native of Booneville, Ky., and he operated several businesses during his career, but the call of the Lord was strong in his heart, and the Rev. McIntosh always relied on that strength. He was a member of the New Frankfort Pentecostal Church east of Austin for 46 years. For the past 26 years, he and wife Carmen pastored the church family and helped it grow.

The tiny church grew so much that it became well-known for its annual day-long hymn sings each spring and fall. Marvin enjoyed the folks, the food and certainly the music – his wife and daughter Lisa always performed and most often he chimed in as well. They eventually formed the Singing McIntoshes with daughter Tammy and sons Marty and Michael contributing. Their singing ministry led people to the altar and to a better faith.

Known to be handy with a hammer, Marvin never hesitated to help others with physical household issues as well as spiritual ones. He certainly wasn’t afraid of hard work and had operated Marvin McIntosh Construction for several years as well as Creative Mortgage Brokerage. He was a member of the Greater Scott County Chamber of Commerce, and his contributions to the community were recognized when he was nominated several years ago for a Mayor’s Good Neighbor Award.

His family and friends said farewell to this gentle servant of God at the service conducted in the church he served so faithfully on Friday morning, June 16. The Rev. Carlos Burdine and the Rev. Wayne Grace officiated. Burial was in Wesley Chapel Cemetery near Austin.

Staff of the Collins Funeral Home in Scottsburg was in charge of arrangements.

Memorial gifts may be arranged through the funeral home staff to assist the family. On-line condolences may be expressed to his loved ones by visiting www.collinsfubneralhome.net.

A kind person who encouraged hundreds of children during her teaching career, Lois Nolan, 72, Scottsburg, died on Monday, June 12, at a hospital in Louisville, Ky.

Lois was one of those people who never knew a stranger. If she could help a child or adult struggling to comprehend, she’d go that extra mile with a willing student and do it in a way that made the individual happy to be involved and learning.

She was born in Corbin, Ky., and was a 1967 graduate of Cumberland College in Williamsburg. She received her master’s in education from Indiana University in 1975.

Lois taught for both local school systems, but she may be best known for her work with GED students, those trying to earn their high school equivalency degrees. She was also an instructor at Ivy Tech Community College, Strayer College and the former Henryville Correctional Facility. She was patient and dedicated, a true teacher in every sense of the word.

With her husband Charles, Lois owned and operated the old Loaves and Fishes Christian Bookstore in Scottsburg as well as Nolans’ Educational Consulting Services. They became more active in those businesses when they retired from their education-based jobs.

Believing that education is one of the best tools people can obtain to become successful, the couple established a scholarship fund with the Scott County Community Foundation to help students.

After Charles died in 2008, Lois remained active, attending and participating in activities at Scottsburg First Christian Church, the General Charles Scott Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and the Scott County Genealogical Society.

Her survivors include son Joel and daughter Bethany, her husband Ethan and three grandchildren.

A DAR memorial service was performed during visitation on Friday evening, June 16, at the Stewart & Hoagland Funeral Home in Scottsburg.

Her funeral service was conducted on Saturday morning, June 17, at Scottsburg First Christian Church. Bro. John Lowry officiated.

Burial was in Scottsburg Cemetery.

Memorial gifts may be arranged through the staff of the funeral home to benefit the Charles G. Nolan and Lois D. Nolan Memorial Scholarship Fund.
