Ardelle Faye Mohr
March 6, 2019
Ardelle Faye (Anderson) Mohr, 79, of Richland, Wash., passed away in her home on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019.
She was born on Oct. 18, 1939, in Glasgow, Mont., to Simon and Irene Anderson.
Growing up, Ardelle was a farmer's daughter and enjoyed playing with the other local farm kids. She loved her pets, especially her cat Tiger and dog Tippy. As she got a bit older she learned to play the clarinet and enjoyed reading. Ardelle graduated from Nashua K-12 School.
She went on to attend a one year college in Havre, Mont., where she was trained as a nurse. She met her husband, David Mohr in 1964 and married him two years later. Her proudest career accomplishments were becoming a certified nursing assistant, as well as becoming a mother, then grandmother and then a great-grandmother to three beautiful little girls. However, nothing could top her being a homemaker and taking care of her family.
Ardelle spent her free time tending to her garden, where she would grow anything and everything. She would take the bright and colorful flowers from her garden and make beautiful arrangements. When she wasn't caught in the garden she could be found in the kitchen baking. She was a firm believer that there were good baking days and days that weren't. She and Dave enjoyed eating a spudnut or just having coffee at the Spudnut shop in Richland. Ardelle loved to make pillows for herself and her family, she was known for the fringe that she would line the pillows with.
She is preceded in death by her husband, David Mohr; her parents Simon and Irene Anderson; and many aunt and uncles.
She is survived by her two daughters, Linda (Marc) Lampton and Cheryl (Gordon) Johnson: two granddaughters, Jessica Keller and Sabrina (Joel) Beauchene: three great-granddaughters, Samantha, Annora and Zoey Beauchene; two siblings, Myrna (Bill) Lauckner and Lavour Anderson; and one brother-in-law, Donald Mohr, and his daughters.
Visitation was at 1 p.m., March 1, at Einan's at Sunset Chapel, 915 ByPass Hwy, Richland, Wash. Interment/service took place at 12 p.m., March 4, at Sunset Memorial Gardens.
