Ardith Lee (Ardi) Thorson Mannos was born December 1, 1949 in Flagler, CO to Gene and Opal Thorson. Ardi departed this life on January 12, 2017 after a brief illness. Knowing that Ardi gave her heart to the Lord at an early age, we are comforted by the fact that we will see her again.

Although she loved her time living in Texas she always considered Colorado home. Ardi worked as a bookkeeper until her retirement when she started a cleaning business where her clients witnessed her tireless work ethic and kind heart. Ardi was married to Ed Scroggins October 10, 2009 when she moved from Denver to Grapevine and soon became well known in the city of Grapevine for her generosity and bubbly personality. Ardi had quite a sense of fashion, loved pink, and there was no such thing as too much bling. She was an excellent cook and was best known for her German Puff Pancakes and Lemon Chicken Piccata. She also loved to crochet blankets and made a special one for each of her nieces and nephews. If you were ever in her home you knew her love of animals as you had three Huskies and one Pomeranian greeting you at the door, these were the current four fur loves of her life.

You would often see her b-bopping and singing along to southern gospel and 50’s & 60’s era music.

Although Ardi never had children of her own, she was a mom to many, a loving sister, and daughter, a best friend that was always there when you needed her.

Ardi was preceded in death by her brother-in-law David Morgan.

She is survived by her husband Ed Scroggins of Grapevine, step-son Jared (Wendy) Scroggins of Grapevine, parents Gene & Opal Thorson of Strasburg, CO, sisters Beverly Morgan of Colorado Springs, CO and Debra Deines of Strasburg, CO, brother Clifton (Shirley) Thorson of Twin Falls, ID, nieces and nephews Angela (John) Gonzales, Holly Ramos, Brian (Heather) Deines, Jenna (Michael) Middleton, Courtney (Brad) Leyshon, great-nieces and nephews Jessica (Eli) Fell, Brandon Ramos, Brooke Ramos, Aidan, Rhyan, Liliana, Jaxen, Jaydon, Hendrix, Jager, and great-great nephews Isaiah and Theodore.

A memorial service will be held at First Baptist Euless on Tuesday, January 17th at 11:00. A memorial service will also be held in Strasburg, Colorado at a later date. All flowers may be sent to the church and donations made to Adopt a Husky of Dallas, Inc. or First Baptist Euless.
