Ardeane Snook passed away Monday, October 29, at Taylor House Hospice.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 a.m., Monday, November 5 at Saint Mary of Nazareth Catholic Church. The family will greet friends one hour prior to the Mass at the church.

An Iowan all her life, Ardeane was born March 5, 1915 to Harriet and William Morey. She spent her early years in Grand Junction. After graduating from high school she managed Morey's Fashion Shop until her marriage to her high school sweetheart John Snook. To this union a daughter Gloria was born.

Among her favorite interests were talking daily to her daughter, family activities, china painting, needlework, quilting, playing in several bridge clubs and at The Bridge House. In 1969, she was a charter member of the Godey Ladies of Questers, a chapter of Questers International, of which she was still a member. She ran several church bazaars as she was very talented at crafts.

Ardeane resided at Scottish Rite Park since 1999. She loved Gloria Guyton, a wonderful caregiver and friend there.

Left to celebrate her life is her daughter Gloria Ward and her husband Dave of Clive, two granddaughters Lori (Todd) Hall of Maple Grove, MN and Lisa (Bob) Smith of Clive; six great-grandchildren Austin, Colin and Brandon Hall and Keely, Haley and Morey Smith. Ardeane was preceded in death by her parents, her loving husband John and her grandson Morey Ward.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the Scleroderma Foundation or the Greater Des Moines Bridge House.
