ARDELLA ELKINS Obituary

Ardella Noreen Kinman Elkins lived a happy and fulfilling life.  She was born on November 2, 1929.  She passed away on July 1, 2022 at 92 years of age from natural causes. She was very much loved and will be deeply missed.

She graduated High School from Potlatch, Idaho then attended Kinman Business School in Spokane, WA. She worked for the Internal Revenue Service in Ogden, Utah and worked 10 years as a secretary for four New York Life Insurance agents in Spokane, WA.

Ardella was a member of DAUGHTERS of the NILE EL KARNAK TEMPLE NO. 6 and Orders of the EASTERN STAR BETHLEHAM CHAPTER OF DEER PARK, and member of Veterans of Foreign Wars. Past President of Wandermere Ladies 18 HOLE GOLF CLUB and volunteered at Shriners Children’s Hospital Spokane, WA.

Ardella married Earl and their favorite pastimes were golfing and traveling with friends. She was a great cook, baking desserts and canning. She loved animals, especially birds and had a special talking parakeet named “Tobey.”  She was very artistic, creating beautiful oil paintings, she enjoyed various crafts including cross stitch, embroidery, crochet, quilting and sewing. She also created her granddaughters wedding dress with hand beaded designs! She kept her mind active with crossword puzzles. Ardella was definitely an inspiration and most of all she loved her family, getting together often. She shared a special bond with her loving sister Doris who spent several weeks each summer visiting. We all loved Ardella and will always carry her memory in our hearts.

Ardella was preceded in death by her husband Earl. She was also preceded in death by her brother and both parents. She is survived by her two sons: Dick (Daphne) and Mike (Sheila). Two grandchildren Zach and Jake (Nicole), and three great grandchildren. Her sister Doris, plus numerous nieces, and nephews.
