Ione (Allen) Robertson was born on April 19, 1918 in Clay County, Kentucky. She was the daughter of Gilbert and Della Webb Allen. She married Albert Robertson on November 16, 1940 in Manchester, Kentucky. Ione enjoyed gardening, cooking, quilting, crocheting, reading, and taking care of the needs of her family and friends. Her fried chicken was enjoyed by many of those who knew her, and she gladly shared delicious meals with them. She was a member of the Oak Forest Church of Christ in Brookville. In addition to helping her husband farm, she worked at Sperry Rubber and Plastics Company, and retired from there in 1983. Ione went to be with her Lord at the age of 99 on May 7, 2017 at Margaret Mary Health in Batesville.
Those surviving who will cherish Ione’s memory include her daughters, Doris Tincher of Brookville, and Donna (Jeff) Moorman of Greensburg; five grandchildren, Jeff (Colleen) Tincher of Brookville, Daphne Porter of Brookville, Danielle (Robert) Ortman of Brookville, Laura Moorman of Tampa, Florida, and Kari Moorman of Bend, Oregon; six great grandchildren; seven great-great grandchildren; two brothers Breck (Annie) Allen of Escondido, California, and Bill (Arlene) Allen of Fairfield, Ohio.
