Valley City, ND

Ardella Ann Moeckel, 88, of Wishek, N.D., died on February 2, 2024, following a stroke at SMP Health – St. Raphael in Valley City, N.D. Ardella was born on June 29, 1935, to Martha and Fredrick Sayler in Wishek, N.D., the eighth of ten siblings. After Ardella graduated from Wishek High School in 1953, she went on to study education at Northern State Teachers College in Aberdeen, S.D., before taking her first job as a teacher in Aberdeen, S.D. In 1957, Ardella married Donald Hilsendager, and they had three children, Theresa, Cole, and Fred. In 1968, Ardella and her children moved back to Wishek, where she later married Stanley Moeckel. Over the years, Ardella held many jobs. She was a teacher, seamstress, business owner, and radio show host—but her most cherished roles were that of mom, grandma, and great-grandma. Whether immediate or extended, family was the most important thing to Ardella. She readily accepted anyone into her family, and she would always go out of her way for those she loved. Ardella was active in church and the Wishek community. She loved music, played piano, and sang in the church choir. She was a talented cook—and her fried bread, vegetable soup, and homemade caramel rolls will be dearly missed. She enjoyed crafts—especially sewing and ceramics. She especially enjoyed attending everything her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren participated in. Ardella was loving, creative, talented, and one of the words most often used to describe her—kind. In a world so often divided, kindness is one of the most important qualities a person can have, and Ardella had it in spades.
