Julie, I offer you my sympathy with the passing of your mother. Sorry I didn't get with you at the service at church, but I did want to let you know how I smiled sitting in the sound booth when Pastor Lisa read your words of remembrance. That's also the way I remembered Ardell. Always friendly and smiling, knew no strangers, gift of gab, always cleaning and tidying up. I also remember seeing her at church quite often, and usually at the contemporary service that I attended, and she always made a point to say "hi". We will miss her.

When we first moved to Waterloo in 2006; Leroy and Ardell were the first to welcome us. I was riding my bike around the neighborhood and she was out cleaning up the acorns in the street. That was Ardell. She spoke to me and when I told her we had moved in behind her, she welcomed me and we soon became good friends. We started to get together and play cards and had lots of laughs and fun. She loved her little treasures and when we had our garage sale, she make my daughter and I laugh because she couldn't stop coming over and buying them. She was a wonderful person and will be sadly missed. Donna J. Glynn
