Ardys Corra, age 85, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013, at Issaquah Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
Ardys was born Aug. 4, 1927, in Rake, Iowa, and moved to Seattle, becoming a beautician shortly after graduating high school. Ardys met her husband Bob in Issaquah in May 1948. The two got married a few months later, on New Year’s Eve, and just celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary.
Ardys then decided to stop working and dedicate her time to raising her four boys. Ardys’ greatest passion was spending time with her family and being a loving sister, wife, mother and grandmother. She loved cooking, humming birds, shopping, playing basketball when she was younger and cheering on the Seattle Mariners.
