While in Dallas, Ardell was employed at the Dallas Morning News for several years. She later found employment with The Home Depot, where she remained for eighteen years.
In 2001, her motherly instincts guided her to Oregon to help her oldest daughter and grandkids. In 2008, she made the move back to Oklahoma to further assist her youngest daughter and grandkids. Since moving back, she was able to enjoy the last few years surrounded by her family. We are all comforted by the fact that she returned "home" to her final resting place.
