Their life path led them to different parts of the country including Los Angeles, CA; Medford, Oregon; Prescott, IA; Excelsior Spring, Mo; Joplin, Mo; and after retirement to Creston, IA to be near family and friends. Ardena became a member of the Assembly of God Church in Creston and was very active in the church until her health began to fail. Ardena was a devout Christian and practiced her faith daily.

Ardena was preceded in death by her parents, Rowe and Elizabeth EIGHME; husband Don (May, 2008); sister Rowena TAYLOR; and brother in-law Wayne TAYLOR.

She is survived by five nieces; Roma Jean HALSEY of St. Joseph, MO; Dixie LINKEY (Jim) of Kansas City, MO; Twyla BRECKENRIDGE of Diagonal, IA; Debbie CAPPS (Ron) of Kansas City, MO; Annie JENSEN (Clark) of Grinnell, IA; and many cousins and host of friends.

Her legacy lives on in all those who loved her and she will be remembered with great fondness.
