Ardith L. (Estep) McClure

Ardith L. McClure, 84, of New Cumberland, was welcomed into the kingdom of heaven on Saturday, November 25, 2023 at home surrounded by her loving family.

Ardith was a woman of strong faith with a love of music and was a member of Trinity Church of New Cumberland. Over her lifetime, she sang in choirs at several churches, and was an organist and pianist for congregations, including the First Church of God in New Cumberland. Her devotion to helping others included membership in the Stitchin’ Sisters ministry at Trinity Church where she knitted many beautiful prayer shawls for members of the church community in need. She was also a long-time member of Trinity Church’s Tuesday Morning Ladies’ Bible Study group.

Ardith was proud to be an excellent homemaker and mother. She was well known for her skills in the kitchen, and her dishes often starred at community and family events. Once her children were grown, she worked in administrative support at Capital Blue Cross in Lemoyne.  

Ardith McClure was born in Yocumtown, York County, the daughter of the late Roy and Pearl (Smaling) Estep and was a 1956 graduate of New Cumberland High School.
