Prayers and thoughts to the family of Ardith. I know she was a very loved mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. I remember her as a very happy and sweet person and will certainly be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Ardith and I worked together for a while at Baxter. She was a dedicated worker. She loved her Mother and family and talked about them a lot. I was blessed our paths crossed.
