Our hearts go out to the Spencer family today as we all mourn the loss of a great lady. Our family is devastated. We have lost a friend of over 30 years. We remember how wonderful Ardeth and Jack were to Mom, lending her their condo after Dad's death so that she could walk on the beach and start healing from her grief. How there was so much beach time, breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with Mom, Ruth, and Floyd. Lots of laughter and fun. We thank Ardeth and Jack for being there during Mom's final years, her illness, and death. Martha remembers them picking her up at the airport the morning Mom died. We are so grateful for the friendship and love Ardeth and Jack gave us over three decades and we pray now for the Lord's comfort in the days ahead as you learn to live without her. Please accept all our love and support.

Jack, My heart breaks for you the most. Such a great and beautiful lady, Ardeth was. Yet, we know, shortly, the Lord returns and in a twinkling, we all meet in the air with Christ! What a remarkable encouraging woman! Always cheerful! Great kids and grandkids, a wonderful legacy. How excited grandmama was about this new great grandchild! Good to talk to you folks. Loved seeing Webby! We are to edify, comfort one another, in the faith. Ardeth did have that gift. Love in our Savior, Wendy

Will miss seeing Ardith in the Township. She always seemed like a touch of Class. I followed her as Peters Township Neighborhood Girl Scout Chairman. Her leadership was impeccable and thorough. So many years ago.
