November 29, 1929 – October 18, 2012
Ardele Diane Cunningham (nee MacIntosh) of Calgary passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at the age of 82 years.
Ardele was born in Collingwood, Ontario on November 29, 1929 to the late Norval and Irene MacIntosh (nee Foy). A beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend, she will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. An avid traveller, she explored much of Britain and Europe before her health put a stop to such activities. With much of her needle point work framed, Ardele was proud of her life long love of needlework. She also shared her love of knitting and crocheting with her granddaughter Michelle.
Ardele is survived by her children David of Calgary and Lori of Wakefield, Quebec; her grandchildren Michelle (Damon) of Calgary, Jason (Emma) of Calgary, Shawn (Carla) of Edmonton, Scott Bruce (Allison) of Ontario, Michael Bruce (Kelly) of Kitchener; her great-grandchildren Brandon, Roland, Lucian, Archer, Alexander, Kyle, and Autumn; as well as a great number of extended family and friends.
In addition to her parents, Ardele was predeceased by her beloved husband Ross and her youngest daughter Carol, as well as her brother Donald MacIntosh.
