The 12 Children of Arthur and Malissa Ard.  (No picture of Arthur Ard Available)

Malissa Ard was born in Houston County, November 23, 1883, and died August 15,1969 at 10:00 AM.  She became a Christian when she was quite young and joined the Mt. Zion Ash Baptist Church and was baptized.  Later she became a member of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church.

She lived a Christian life ever after.  Her Christian life was as the fragrance of a beautiful rose, and her influence will ever live in whatever place she has resided because she was known for extreme courtesy and willingness to accommodate everyone.

(Taken from the Obituary of Mrs. Malissa Ard, August 20, 1969)
