Ardith Allene Roachell (Malone), of North Little Rock, was born to Harold William Malone and Hazel Ardith Malone (Buhler) on September 25, 1942.
She was preceded in death by her love in life, Bobby Roachell. She is survived by her sons, Harold Roachell and Shawn Roachell (Melody); sister, Kim Gravitt; seven grandchildren, Durane Roachell, Stephanie Tinnon (David), Ben Bowie, Dustin Roachell, Heather Roachell, Newton McNew and Accyllia Roachell; six great-grandchildren, Rhiannon Roachell, Daedyn Roachell, Ryley Lobdell, Peyton Solerto, Dayton Tinnon and Jaiden Tinnon.
Ardith had a full career as an LPN for the Veterans Administration following in her mother's footsteps in the nursing field. She was an avid shopper and enjoyed getting family members presents by the truck load for the holidays. She was an avid PBR (Professional Bull Riders) fan and also enjoyed spending time strolling through Branson, Missouri and window shopping with family members. But her favorite pastime was spending time with, as she referred to him as "Her Sexy Sailor!" (Bobby Roachell). Ardith Roachell was truly one sweet little Gem of Life, that everyone she touched felt special and loved. She will be sorely missed by all.
May Gods Hand Reach Out and Welcome Her into Heaven and reunite her with missed Love ones and Friends of past days.
The family requests instead of flowers, donations be made in her name to the "American Brain Tumor Association."
