Iona Sue Hand

Iona "Sue" (Booth) Hand, 96, of Antwerp, passed away Tuesday, December 8, 2020, at Hickory Creek Nursing Home, Hicksville, Ohio.

Sue was born on September 26, 1924, to the late Alfred and Lottie Booth. She was a 1942 graduate of Antwerp High School.

On September 25, 1943, she was united in marriage with Justus Seymour Hand, a happy union that lasted until both were in their nineties. 

Sue loved the farm life, piano playing, card playing, crossword puzzles, dancing, and time spent with her family and friends. She exuded a girlish charm right up until the end and will be deeply missed by her loved ones, including her children, David (Debra) Hand, Janet (Terry) Foust, and Roger (Jennifer) Hand.
