Of sundry relationships formed in a workplace, the one with Ardelle is the only one that endured for me. Almost all from her steady effort, we stayed in touch over the next twenty-plus years: a project, a long conversation, lunch. I’m grateful that she kept the connection.

In an early printed staff bio I mentioned her “spirit.” She embodied, as a first impression, the best of passion, commitment, creativity, work ethic. It was an impression that only strengthened with time, and more so when I learned of the serious health challenges she’d faced all of her adult life. She didn’t want to be defined by them, she said. No self pity. But she certainly taught me about them. I admired and was inspired by her courage living as full a life as she could, and did, in spite of them.

She spoke from time to time, consistently over time, of Randy, of Norm, of her mother, and the others she loved and admired, and she was clearly grateful for the love and support they’d given her, from start to finish.

The loss is irreparable, but the memories remain, and I’m somewhat consoled that my last words, not too long ago, were that it had been good to talk to her and that our plans—a lunch date—remain in the making.

Ardelle and I were classmates at Harry Ainley and we went on the first trip to Europe during spring break for the school. For me, Ardelle has a special place in my heart because in Amsterdam she probably saved my life. A street train was zooming by and I had my back turned. I was leaning into it’s path and Ardelle grabbed me and pulled me back. I have always remembered her for that alert, heroic deed. Like all things school, travel and life has taken me away from Edmonton. I’m remain eternally grateful and may you find peace in your time of sorrow.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, during this difficult time. Ardelle was a wonderful person full of love.
RIP my friend, love Allan & Brenda
