Ardyce was born to Chester & Beverly (Hoots) Zweigle on March 27, 1949 in Harvey North Dakota. Ardyce was raised on a family farm west of Harvey. She graduated from Harvey High School in 1967. During her school years she was active in singing with the choir and in band. She was involved in 4H and presented projects at the Wells County Fair winning ribbons.

 Ardyce attended NDSU and while in Fargo she met her future husband. She was united in marriage to Daryl G. Snyder on January 10, 1971 in Harvey, ND. They moved to Montana, living in several communities where Daryl worked as a meat cutter in grocery stores then advancing to an Inspector. With their many moves they were in Sioux Falls, SD, Fargo, ND, and Worthington, MN, then to Minot, ND and finally they settled in New Rockford, ND together, enjoying their final home.

For many years Ardyce sold Home Interiors, helping beautify other people’s homes and her own. She worked at Vorland Land Company as their office secretary and was a licensed Real Estate Agent.
