Ardith J. Gloden

Ardith J. (Dowd) Gloden passed away on September 14, 2023, at Lake Isabella, MI following a brief illness. She was 75 years old.
She was born June 20, 1948, in Sault Ste. Marie, MI to parents Harold Emerson Dowd and Margaret Mae (Rader) Dowd. Ardith was born just 33 minutes after her beloved twin sister (and dearest friend) Desta Ann Dowd.

Ardith is survived by Caryl Robert (Bob) Gloden, her wonderful, always home-focused husband of 34 years. They accomplished much together. Also surviving are her stepson, Robert Scott Gloden (Theresa Bush); and grandson, Connor Scott Boucher Gloden (Cassie Castillo). Her twin sister, Desta A. Kearney (Dan) also survives, and has been a tower of support, strength and comfort to all.

Per Ardith’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no service of any kind. May you remember her fondly, as she remembers you.
