I never had the pleasure to meet Ardith in person but her and I chatted quite often while Larry and I were talking. We had a lot in common. We had similar background and upbringing. We shared some of these similarities during our chats. I even got to taste some of her baking which she carefully packaged and sent to me in Canada. I’m so sorry I never got to meet her. I’ll miss her!

Lorraine, Audrey and Ardyth's Family
We will truly miss visiting with Ardyth during our trips through Springfield. We always tried to meet with Ardyth each time we either went trough Springfield or were there on business. Usually we met for breakfast and most of the time at the Bob Evans just off I-55 on Stevenson Drive which we think was one of Ardyth's favorite breakfast eateries. We will unable to attend Ardyth's funeral because of prearrange travel plans. You are all in our prayers and thoughts and may Ardyth rest in peace which she truly deserves.

Ardy was a special friend that always had a smile and a laugh. I enjoyed talking with her over lunch about life in general. We shared several Amish friends and chatted about them . My deepest sympathy to all the family, may your memories help sustain you through this difficult time.
