Booth retiring after 36 years with Iowa State Bank

Aaron Kness, president and CEO of Iowa State Bank, announces that Susan Booth, vice president of Consumer Lending, will be retiring from Iowa State Bank at the end of May after 36 years of service.

“Susan has made an indelible mark on the bank with her ‘can do’ attitude, genuinely fun personality and wonderful sense of humor,” said Kness. “These past few years, her contribution to training our staff has been invaluable. We’re going to miss her very much.”

Booth started her career with Iowa State Bank on Oct. 10, 1983, and has worked for many years as a consumer loan officer. She has also served on the South East Iowa Bank Group board, Walton Club’s board of directors, and has been actively involved with the Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce and many other local organizations.

Booth’s husband, Steve, farms in Jefferson County. The couple have one son, Jeremy, as well as two granddaughters.

Although Booth is retiring from the bank, she plans to remain active in a variety of causes around Fairfield. When she’s not cheering on the Hawkeyes, she can be found spending time with her family, golfing, and traveling.

Jared Lyle, Iowa State Bank’s senior vice president, added “Susan’s passion and commitment to her customers and our community will certainly be missed. On behalf of everyone at Iowa State Bank, we wish her the very best as she begins the next chapter of her life.”
