Susanne Heintzel Boone, 96, of Brandon, passed away Friday, May 8, 2020.

Graveside Services will be held at 2:00pm, Monday, May 11, 2020, in the Johns Cemetery.

Susanne was born June 5, 1923, in Berlin Germany, the daughter of the late Erich Heintzel and Johanna Ilchmann Heintzel.

During her marriage, Susanne made her home in the Johns community, where she was a long time member of the Johns Baptist Church. In recent years she attended Rock Hill Baptist Church.

Susanne delighted in her life as a wife and homemaker. A grand cook, she was well known for her delicious breads and German potato salad. Susanne loved to do handwork and was proficient at many stitches including crochet and knitting. For many years she and her husband maintained a sizeable vegetable garden, often sharing their homegrown veggies with friends and neighbors. They were also faithful to visit friends in the hospital, or attend funerals or weddings, always showing their support for those around them.

For the last ten years of her life, Susanne was a resident of Brandon Court, where she continued to stay busy with her handwork, and enjoyed someone else making the German potato salad for a change. Always happy to see visitors, her niece, Willie Jean Harris, visited her every week, making sure her needs were met and often surprising her with her beloved chocolate candy or dill pickles.

In addition to her parents, Susanne was preceded in death by her husband, J.D. Boone, a retired veteran of the U.S. Air Force who served in during WWII and the Korean War.

Survivors include her niece, Willie Jean Harris; nephews, Marcus Heintzel, Charles Anderson and wife Marilyn, Harry Anderson and wife Dianne, Sam Hupperich and wife Sandra, Ronnie Boone, Foy Lockhart and wife Donna, Don Lockhart, Leon Boone and wife Tina, and Bob Boone; and many extended family members and friends who cared for Susanne deeply.

Memorials may be made to the Building Fund at Rock Hill Baptist Church, Brandon.
