She is survived by her 3 children, Richard Doty (Karen), Larry Doty (Sharon) and Marilyn Hatch (Terry). Also surviving are five grandchildren, Chad, Christopher, Terry, Ryan and Erin. She was also very proud of her 9 great grandchildren and one great-great grandson. She has numerous nieces and nephews.

Ardis was a military wife for 23 years moving around the United States as the military gave orders. To add to the family income, she worked as a secretary at the local schools where they resided at the time. In later years, after her husband retired from the military, she worked for the State of Washington for 5 years. Ardis was an avid quilter making beautiful quilts for her children and grandchildren.

She and her husband belonged to Pines Baptist Church for over 30 years, and were members of the A.O.U.W. Lodge and National Camping Travelers.
