To the Coninx Family, My brothers and I fondly remember Ardis Coninx. She was the head librarian at Lincoln Junior High School in Skokie, IL. We remember as a kind and helpful teacher and librarian who instilled in students a love for reading. She was a disciplinarian and no-nonsense. She always had time for students and always inquired as to how we were doing in our classes. She also helped us with our math questions and homework. May her memory be eternal. God has called home a wonderful and kind lady.

Ardis and husband Don we’re big parts of my life growing up just east on Concord Lane. They were big supporters of Scout activities which were sponsored at CMC in the era 1956...1970. Don worked with my dad on flooring jobs and they were regular social visitors at our home. I remember Ardis as energetic and nobody to fool with! RIP Ardis and my condolences to the family.

One of the last "originals" from when we joined Central in 1972. I will most remember being "sharp as a tack" with a memory of every detail. I also remember learning the Dewey Decimal System from her at Lincoln.

Central won't be the same without you sitting in "your" pew. You will be missed, Ardis.
