Arthamese “Ardy” Mary Osmundson, 83, of Austin, Minnesota, passed away peacefully at home with family at her side on Saturday, June 1, 2024.

Arthamese was born September 28, 1940 in Austin, Minnesota to Edward “Pete” and Mary Arthamese (Feeley) Titus. She graduated in 1959 from Pacelli High School. She worked at Echo Lanes Bowling Alley where she met the love of her life, David Osmundson. Ardy and David were married January 2, 1965 and had three daughters.

Ardy worked at Weyerhauser for 42 years. After retiring, she wanted to keep busy, so with her love of children she became a Day Care provider for four very special families. Due to Covid and health issues, she retired from babysitting at age 80. Always having time for her special families, she was Grandma to all of them.
