Ardith Marie Wolfe was born on October 6, 1932 in the Town of Beaver, rural Loyal. She was raised on the family farm and received her education in the Town of Beaver, graduating from Loyal High School in 1950. Ardith was united in marriage on July 1, 1953 to Edward J. Domine, Jr. at St. Anthony Catholic Church, in Loyal. They moved to Milwaukee where she worked as a beautician and was a volunteer at the Children's Hospital. In 1963, they purchased the Ever Breeze Resort on Pike Lake, near Park Falls, WI, which they operated until 1968. They sold the resort and moved back to Loyal, so Ardith could be a full-time mother. They continued to reside in Loyal until moving to Marshfield in 2014 and then to La Crosse to live with their granddaughter, Ashley, in October 2016.
Ardith had many interests, but especially loved spending time with her family, doing volunteer work, traveling, playing cards, bingo, and going to the casino.
She was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church and its PCCW.
