I am so sorry about Ardine passing. She was always so kind and friendly to everyone she met. I always considered her a very dear friend.

Oh my goodness. This is truly a sad situation. I worked with Ardine at K-Mart for years. She was the only one I looked for at WalMart. What a blessing she was to everyone. She will be missed. Prayers for the family.

Ardine was a cherished sister, sister in law and aunt. She loved to talk and tell stories. She was fiercely loyal and if she was in your corner, SHE WAS IN YOUR CORNER! We will always be thankful for the time we spent with her last March. We are truly blessed with countless memories, and will carry her in our hearts always. Dink was the smallest member of the family, but we all knew she was there, cause she was as big as life itself. Love, Glen, Karen and Family

I got to work with Ardine at both Kmart and Walmart. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed.

Thank you Clint Stutts. Mom talked about you through the years. Especially when she would see you "flying over".
