Irene Sue Hodge

June 12, 1956 ~ August 13, 2020 (age 64)


Irene Sue Hodge, age 64, of  Bolivar, Ohio, died Thursday afternoon, August 13, 2020 in the Schroenbrunn Healthcare Center at New Philadelphia following a long illness.

She was born June 12, 1956 in Canton, Ohio and was the daughter of  the late David Ray and Hazel Odessa Berry Gamble .  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two brothers, Floyd Weir, and Kenny Weir, three sisters, Doris (Weir) Hartline, Frances (Weir) Brenneman, and Shirley (Weir) Landry and her longtime companion, Ed "Teed" Martin.

Irene was a graduate of Carrollton High School.  She was fond of spending her time reading, or when the opportunity presented itself, going to play bingo at the New Philadelphia Elks Club, or anywhere else that she could find a bingo game. But little else could match the freedom she felt when she had the chance to go for a ride in the car with family or friends.  She was a loving sister and aunt that will be missed by those who knew her. 

She is survived by  two brothers, David M. (Becky) Gamble of Dellroy, OH, and Ronald Weir of Bowerston, OH, a sister Mrs. Mary (Glenn) Shaner of Carrollton, OH, and numerous nieces and nephews.
