She not only served as the past president but also held many other positions within the organization. Her needlework was a testament to her artistic talent and her ability to create beauty in the threads she wove.
Ardith's passion for genealogy was another facet of her multifaceted life. She spent countless hours researching family history, tracing lineage, and preserving the stories of her ancestors. Her work in this field was not just a pastime but a gift to future generations, ensuring that the roots and connections of her family tree would be known and celebrated.
Those who knew Ardith will remember her as a loving and creative soul. Her kindness radiated from her, touching the lives of those around her. She had a unique ability to make people feel valued and loved, a trait that endeared her to many.
