I am so saddened to learn that my long time friend, Ardy has passed. I first met Ardy as a freshman at Frenchtown High School and we have remained friends all these years. It seems like yesterday that I was in her wedding to Bob all those years ago. May she rest in peace. My deepest sympathies to her family. She was a good friend and her family was very important to her.

to the entire family of Ardath Balliet, our condolences to all of you. I remember when I was a young girl she would ride past my parents house and always wave to us with her 4 small sons in the car. Happy memories to all of you

From: Edward Hack
I first met Ardy in the summer of 1950 at the Barn Theater where she was working behind the counter selling candy. We chated for a while and she told me she was starting High School in September. Wow, so am I. I thought to myself, what a lucky dude I am, having Ardy in my same classes. The next 4 years, we shared some classes, and she was a cheerleader performing at all high school sporting events. I didn't meet Ardy again until our 50 year reunion in 2004 and always had my highest esteem for her. Rest in peace Ardy.
