Cousins Sue & Randy,
We knew that this day would eventually come. With so many past peaceful years, I rejoice that aunt Ardis was able to depart in peace. With mom’s passing in 1986, your mother in many ways sustained her memory as well. Aunt Ardis was the last of that generation, a generation that witnessed a phenomenal amount of history- an endured! I remember… . I will remember the times of “family” that aunt Ardis and uncle Don desired to cultivate and nurture over the decades and generations. The “cottage” has always been the “siren call” to gather together, despite the increasing miles - and time - that increasingly separates family from each other nowadays. Aunt Ardis can now rest with our Lord from all her labors.

Blessings!

Cousin Ted (Dornbos)

So very sorry to read of Ardis' passing. There are many memories of her from being neighbors to happy times raising families around the lakes. Benson's Drug Store has to be one of my first memories.
