She attended a rural country school near her parents’ homestead and went on to graduate from Windom High School. On January 1, 1939, Ardith was united in marriage to Marvin A. Pietz at the parsonage in Jeffers, Minnesota. They lived in Rosehill Township from 1939 until they moved to rural Revere in 1941where they farmed with Marvin’s two brothers and their families.

In her younger years she kept a beautiful garden, knitted and crocheted, and she was an excellent cook. She loved to entertain and always set a beautiful table, whether for her family and friends or for her ladies circles and neighborhood groups. Ardith was a faithful member of the Lamberton United Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School for several years. Her husband Marvin passed away in May of 1998. In 1999 Ardith moved to Boulder Estates in Marshall where she thoroughly enjoyed all the activities and the company of fellow residents.
