Remembering Loni McIntosh: Memorial walk on November 1st

Two and a half years ago, we noted local fitness instructor Loni McIntosh‘s cancer battle, as friends organized a fundraiser. Today, we have word that Ms. McIntosh’s long fight is over, and that everyone who knew her is invited to gather for a memorial walk next Saturday:

Beloved fitness instructor and longtime member of the West Seattle community, Loni McIntosh, passed away from brain cancer Wednesday 10/15. Please join us to celebrate Loni as we do a walk and gathering in her memory on Alki Beach next Saturday, November 1st at 10 am. We will meet outside the Alki Bathhouse for a few words and walk as a group. Rain or shine. Let’s remember Loni with fun stories and memories of the tough, kind, loving person she was. Please wear blue/teal if you can.

Ms. McIntosh was 57 years old.

    Loni was a very special person. I’m grateful I had the pleasure of knowing her. I loved attending her motivating fitness classes. To her family and close friends, may you find comfort in knowing Loni’s joyous and positive approach to life helped many of us.

    Loni was such a joyfull positive person, her smile was a joy to see. We would always love to see her and her husband walking by our house. We loved to talk about our Corgies, Bootsie, Pearl, Ruby and Huey (not corgi, but a real love). I am sure she is on a long walk with her Bootsie, and previous beloved animals they have owned and loved. Her love of animals and talk of art and projects was always a joy. We will surely miss seeing her in the neighborhood.

    Loni was a delightful person, full of joy and light. I never saw her in a bad mood in the 30 years I have known her. I had a really good dog joke to tell her. I’ll have to tell Terry instead. We’ll miss you Loni.

    Old spirit, in and beyond me,
    keep and extend me. Amid strangers,
    friends, great trees and big seas breaking,
    let love move me. Let me hear the whole music,
    see clear, reach deep. Open me to find due words,
    that I may shape them to ploughshares of my own making.
    After such luck, however late, give me to give to
    the oldest dance….Then to good sleep,
    and-if it happens-glad waking.

    Loni heard the whole music, and she shared it with us. John Wiley
