Evelyn Ardel was born on Aug. 10, 1926, in Watson Township, the 10th of 11 children born to Jerome and Bertha (Hosman) Webb. She married Gilbert G.

Also surviving are grandchildren, Israel Slone, John Slone, wife Somer, Christian Bradford and Lindsey, Gretchen Fuhr, husband Clayton, Katie Smoron, husband Scott, Kimberly Dubbelde, husband Josh, Colin Bradford, wife Kristina, and Kelly Johnson; great-grandchildren, Jace Slone, Kinley and Nolan Slone, Avery and Alex Dubbelde, Reece Fuhr and Cohen Bradford.

In addition to her husband Gilbert, Ardel was preceded in death by her parents; son-in-law, Ed Bradford; brothers, Leo (in infancy), Jesse, Louis, Elwyn, Lester and Dale Webb; and sisters, Ida (in infancy), Esta Scott Keller, Lucille Percival and Iva Evans.
