  3. Dear Tom &Family, Lots of special memories over the years. Working together at Family Drug and Barb’s…..watching our families grow up….Christmas Eve RUNZAS at Grandma and Grandpa Eitels. Ardie was the family Anise cookie maker. We both learned how, but she was the one who continued the tradition, RUNZAS too. Every time I look at the calendar she gave me for my birthday I will remember her. Strong, loyal , loving…..I will miss her.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Ardie at Barb’s for many years. (Tracie even babysat my kids.) I enjoyed working there, but If
    Ardie was working I knew it was going to be a fun night. She will be truly missed.

  13. I am sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of knowing Ardie living next door to relatives and working with her at the web press. I remember talking with her about her family, the wild bird store, and her dog. Ardie will be missed but we will always have good memories.

  14. Tom, and family, Marguerite, Kay, Margo, and David,

    I was deeply saddened to hear of Ardie’s passing. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Ardie was my friend from childhood on and I have many wonderful memories of growing up with her. One memory I hold most dear is walking home every day from grade school and junior high and stopping and talking on every street corner. It took us hours to get home from school. We had such great times.

    I’ve seen Ardie just a few times since we all scattered after high school. I saw her a couple of times when she lived in the Sandhills, and I lived in North Platte. After moving to Lincoln I felt like I kept in touch with her by visiting with Margo occasionally.

    Peace be with you, as you all heal.

    With fond memories,

    Pat Sullivan Lyster
