Candace graduated in 1973 from Dwight Township High School. She worked at Coils in Dwight for more than 20 years; County Market for more than 15 years; and VSI in Pontiac.
Her family suggests memorials be made to Livingston County Humane Society or a charity of the donor’s choice.
Candy enjoyed spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking, watching her nieces’ and nephews’ sporting events, and she was always ready for a ride, especially if it was out to eat.
She will be dearly missed by her family and all who knew her.
