Ardys "Ardie" Bubak was born on March 11, 1929, in Sisseton, SD to Albert and Clara (Iverson) Bubak. She grew up in and was a 1947 graduate of Sisseton High School. She worked at the Stanford Medical School and was a successful saleswoman in the real estate industry. She worked as a real estate agent in California and in Santa Fe, NM, where she lived since 1991. Two things were of great importance to her - her love for God, and her love for her family. Mostly as a single mom, she raised three sons, Thom, Jim and David. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the joy of her life. Family members often remarked that each new grandchild was as special to her as the first. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. She was also a member of the Christian Life Fellowship church in Santa Fe, NM. She passed away in her sleep on April 4, 2004 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Memorial contribution may be made to the American Cancer Society.

Beverly Brafford of Atlanta, GA; one brother, Orville and his wife Shirley Bubak of Sisseton, SD; nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, Albert Bubak, and one sister, Audrey Beardsley.
