  1. Curt, Mattie and Paulsen gang
    Ardell was one of the most amazing people I had ever met, we clicked from the moment I met her!! I am fortunate to say that Delly was one of my best friends and I loved her like a sister. She taught me so many things, mostly how to be a stronger and better person. I will miss her smiling face and contagious laughter, I can hear it now. Thanks Delly for being you, I love you and will miss you every single day of my life!!!!

  2. Ardell had a heart of Gold! She was one of a kind and helped everyone. Was a pleasure to work in her company. Always knew I could count on her help with any question. Will miss her dearly. Blessings to family and friends. Raise a glass to Ardell! Only good memories here!

  3. Curt, Mattie and Family…
    My heart continues to break for all of you with the passing of Ardell. I am so happy to have been a friend of Ardell; she was an amazing and inspirational lady. I will miss her beautiful smile, wit and the sound of her contagious laughter. She leaves a tremendous legacy behind, here on Earth. I hope you find comfort in knowing that she is eternally smiling and at peace. I will miss her!

  4. Dear Paulsen family,
    My brother Jim just heard today about the loss of Ardell and called me in California to ask if I knew anything of it. I was in Nebraska visiting from the 3rd of March through the 14th and so wish we had known so that we could have joined you in celebrating her life. Our memories of Bitsy and the rest of our neighbor Paulsen’s go back lots of years, but they are many and always will be fond ones. We had so much fun together, playing while our folks visited or played cards. Your house was always fun to come to! Our thoughts are with you all.
