Ardith Elaine Bellore Trubey
Ardith Elaine Bellore Trubey was born the last day of January, 1923, in Ironwood, MI. She passed away in Hot Springs, AR on December 15, 2009.
The only daughter of Alfred and Mayme Bellore, she had two brothers, the late Pershing and Danny Bellore.
While working on her Elementary Education degree, she met the love of her life at Emanuel Missionary College (now Andrewís University) in Berrien Springs, MI. Ardith married Amos Calvin Trubey on August 29, 1943 and together they loved each other for the next 63 years until Amos passed away on Dec 24, 2006.
For over 30 years Ardith taught elementary school, both public and Christian, in FL, CO, AR and in north, central and southern CA. She and Amos retired from Corona, CA and moved to Hot Springs, AR in 1980, where they joined Roger and Jan Trubey to make the Old Country Store a blessing to the Hot Springs community. Ardith always had a beautiful smile and warmth about her that everyone loved.
Together, Ardith and Amos had 3 wonderful children, Dan and Linda Trubey from Hendersonville, NC, Roger and Jan Trubey from Hot Springs, AR and Nancy and Bob Thornton from Sacramento, CA. Although Ardith only had 3 children of her own, she had hundreds of school children who loved and adored her and for whom she was not only their teacher but also their inspiration, mentor and friend. In addition to her children, she is survived by 8 grandchildren and spouses, 7 great-grandchildren, a large and wonderful extended family, a loving Seventh-day Adventist church family and a community of Hot Springs, all of whom will miss her dearly. She showed others what Jesus love is all about in the way she lived her life.
