Ardele Leone McAuley, beloved wife of Bob of Calgary, passed away on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at the age of 64 years.
Ardele grew up in Pincher Creek, AB and obtained her grade 10 in piano while going to school there. She attended the Banff School of Fine Arts and received her B. Ed., majoring in Music, from the University of Alberta in 1968. She taught school in Edmonton and Calgary and was loved by her students, coworkers and many friends. Her piano playing, both classical and popular, was a joy to listen to and her cheerful laugh made everyone around her happy. She volunteered as a piano player in the kindergarten at Captain John Palliser School where her children attended, and at other functions when needed. She liked to garden, knit and was a great homemaker. She will be sadly missed by her loved ones.
Ardele leaves to mourn her husband Bob; sons, Robert, Christopher and Jonathan of Calgary; sister Jean (Hank) Kirby of Comox, BC; cousins Ginny (Norm) Reed of Pincher Creek, AB and Jo Anne (Wally) Momsen of Nanaimo, BC; and numerous extended family and friends. Ardele was predeceased by her parents, Lewis and Iva Allison.
