So sorry to hear about Ardith’s passing. She worked with our family at Dixie Lee for years. She use to also babysit for us when Mom and Dad went away. She was one brave woman! I have great memories of her showing up at our house with bread fresh from the oven made by Mrs. West.

Ardith’s family:
I am so very sorry to read this.Ardith and I lived two houses apart, she on Waterloo and me on College. We became good friends and started playing marbles every day., either on the road or in her yard. We couldn’t wait for the next day to come.Both of our families were friends and my Dad, Reg Wigglesworth, along with Frannie Mouzar and Ardith’s Dad, Earl,rabbit hunted often, but some of the shenanigans,they got Earl into were too funny.Those were the days.
I am also so very sorry that I can’t make the service. Have been in with a very bad cold for 2 1/2 weeks. I will miss seeing all the family!

Condolences to you all.

It is with great sadness that we send this message. We are sorry that we are not there in person with all our brothers and sisters for Ardies Celebration of Life but we are definitely there in spirit and mind. We share your sorrow.

To Clayton: We send our deepest sympathy. you and Ardie had a special love. and we know at this moment you are wondering , “What am i going to do without Ardie”? Please remember the good times and we are sure Ardie will be whispering in your ear what you should do. Stay strong and know that one day you two love birds will be together again.

To Donna, Crystal and Tony: Your Mom was special. Full of fun and laughter. God had blessed her with 78 wonderful years and God did not want her to be suffering so he called her home to her special place. Please remember the good times and continue to show love for and to one another.

As well , I, brother Walter have great sorrow and fond memories of my sister Ardith, especially when stories were being told and Ardie would end by saying , “That Dam Fool”‘ I will truly miss her,
Our heart aches for Ardie but we know she is gone to a better place. May she rest in peace.

Much love and our deepest sympathy,
Kathy and Walter
