Ardyce worked for many years as a sales clerk for Gimbel's Department store both at Hilldale and East Towne. During WWII she helped make walkie talkies at a defense plant in Madison.
A longtime resident of Sun Prairie, Ardie was a devoted and fun-loving sister and aunt. She enjoyed watching sports and was a loyal fan of the Brewers, Packers and Badgers. She was a member of the Red Hat Society and a favorite hobby was to make sure her home was decorated for every holiday and special occasion.
A private family gathering to remember Ardie will be held at a later date.
The family would like to thank the staff and care givers at Oak Park Place of Nakoma for their kind and compassionate care. A special thank you to Ardie's in home care giver, Tammi, for all her loving help and support.
