Mavis Carolyn Ard was born September 11, 1937, in Decatur County, the daughter of Sam & Mabel Lynn Nix Ard. She moved to Howey-in-the-Hills and Groveland, Florida growing up. Her daddy died when she was fifteen, so her family moved back to West Bainbridge. She attended West Bainbridge School from 9th through 12th grades. She worked nine years with Southern Bell as a telephone operator. She quit work after she had her son.

Mavis married Archie Duncan on March 28, 1959, and was married 53 years when he passed away in 2012. She was a member of Climax Baptist Church. Mavis thanks the Lord for saving her, dying on the cross, and shedding His blood for her. She loved her family with her whole heart. She loved working in her yard rooting roses and pollinating amaryllis and day lilies. She loved sharing her flowers with all her friends.

Survivors include her daughter, Amy (Greg) Marshall of Whigham; her granddaughters, Kimberly Chandler of Edison, Hannah (Dustin) Thomas of Cairo, and Heather Marshall of Whigham; her great-grandchildren, Cassiddee, Avery, River, Carson, and Kellen. In addition to her parents, Mavis was preceded in death by her husband, Archie Duncan, her son, Darin Duncan, and her brother, Wendell Ard.

The Duncan Family would like to thank Dr. Cochran, Bainbridge Pharmacy, the Manor, and Bethany Hospice for taking such great care of Mama.
