Ardella Gloria Weisbeck, beloved wife, mother, daughter, and friend, unexpectedly left us on December 19, 2023. She will be deeply missed by all those who had the privilege of knowing her. Ardella's passing has left a void in our lives that can never be filled, but we find solace in the memories we shared with her during her time on this earth.
Ardella was born on January 1, 1952, in Dickinson, ND. Growing up in a small town taught her the values of community and family that she would carry with her throughout her life. After graduating from Trinity High School in 1970 and then attending North Dakota State School of Science, Ardella embarked on a journey that would touch the lives of many.
She spent decades in the insurance industry, working as a Senior Underwriter/Computer Liaison with Assurant. Her dedication and expertise allowed her to make valuable contributions to the company. In recognition of her hard work and commitment, Ardella retired with Assurant Scottsdale in December of 2013.
While Ardella was admired for her professional achievements, it was her devotion to her family that defined her. Family always came first for Ardella, no matter what else was going on in her life. She loved each and every one of them unconditionally and made sure they were always happy and taken care of. To them, she was not just a loving wife and mother but also a source of warmth and guidance—a second mom to many.
Christmas held a special place in Ardella's heart. She had a passion for decorating and transformed their home into a magical wonderland during the holidays. The joy she found in creating beautiful memories for her family was evident as laughter filled their home during this festive season. Ardella's love for Christmas became an annual tradition that will forever be cherished.
When Ardella wasn't nurturing her loved ones or excelling in her career, she filled her time with a wide range of hobbies and interests. She enjoyed coloring, dancing, swimming, working out, watching football "Go Vikes!" She even had talents in sports such as golf, pickleball, and bocce ball. Ardella's creativity extended to the kitchen, where her baking skills delighted those lucky enough to savor her delicious treats. However, it was through traveling that she truly found a sense of exploration and wonder. Ardella cherished every adventure and collected countless memories along the way.
Ardella's proudest accomplishments included being a Catholic Daughter—an organization close to her heart—serving on the Sun Lakes Architectural Committee—and supporting Veterans. These roles allowed her to make meaningful contributions to her community and foster relationships with like-minded individuals who shared her passion for making a difference.
Ardella was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Terry Anthony Weisbeck; father, Peter S. Wanner; son, Phillip Anthony Weisbeck. She is survived by her sons, Taylor (T.J.) John Weisbeck, wife Kiley and their five children; Laine (L.A.) Anthony Weisbeck, wife Mallory and their three young children. Along with her mother, Gloria Wanner; brothers, Harlon, Gery and Elvis; sisters, Grace and Carol.
Ardella Gloria Weisbeck's presence in our lives brought light and love to all who knew her. Her kindness knew no bounds, and she had an innate ability to make everyone feel welcome. Her warm smile and compassionate heart will forever live on in our memories.
As we bid farewell to this remarkable woman, let us remember the joy she brought into our lives. May we carry forward the lessons she taught us about family, love, and generosity. Ardella would want us to celebrate her life with love and laughter while keeping those values close to our hearts.
