Ardis J. Swensen

Ardis J. Swensen, age 90 of Dunwoody, Ga., passed away peacefully at home on May 19, 2019. The former Ardis Manderscheid was born April 6, 1929, to the late Raymond A. & Alma (Doern) Manderscheid of Malone, Wis.

Originally from Wisconsin, Ardis graduated as valedictorian from Chilton High School and from the Stout Institute (University of Wisconsin - Stout) in 1953 with a B.S. in Family and Consumer Science. Upon graduation, Ardis became a Home Economics teacher at Kiel High School and then a county Home Extension Agent for Oneida County. She continued working in education in Clinton, Miss. and as a Paraprofessional in elementary schools in north Dekalb County for the Dekalb County School District.

On June 27, 1959, Ardis married Edmond I. Swensen of Rhinelander. Ardis, along with her husband and family, lived in Mississippi and Arkansas before moving to Dunwoody in 1976 and retiring there. She and her husband enjoyed spending their summers on a lake in the Northwoods of northern Wisconsin.

Ardis is survived by her children, Eric (Amy Stark) of Houston, Texas; Gerda of Dunwoody, Ga. and Karl (Susan) also of Dunwoody, Ga. She is further survived by three grandchildren, Anna, Scott and Amelia of Dunwoody, Ga. Preceding her in death were her parents; her husband, Edmond; a sister, Gloria C. Sattler; and a brother, Raymond H. Manderscheid.

According to their wishes, Ardis and Edmond will be laid to rest together at Forest Home Cemetery in Rhinelander at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made in Ardis' name to University of Wisconsin - Stout, the Red Cross or Georgia Public Broadcasting. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother and will be missed.
