Ardis was born in Bloomfield, Nebraska, on November 18, 1928, to Elmer and Gladys Johnson. She graduated from Bloomfield High School in 1946. She moved to Lincoln and worked as a dental assistant until her sister’s death at which point she moved back to Bloomfield to take care of her family.

Ardis raised 4 children, attended numerous swimming meets and sporting events and enjoyed playing board games. She also liked to watch Wheel of Fortune, listen to polka and dancing, and her red glass of wine.

Family meant everything to Ardis. She had an infectious smile that could light up a room.

Ardis loved to entertain friends and family, and she especially loved to celebrate every holiday, which she made sure it was special for everyone.
