Candy was a loving caregiver to everyone with whom she was connected. She was an English major at Carson-Newman and worked at The Herald Journal in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Candy also worked at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind and as a substitute teacher. Her lifelong love of the written word never ended. She spent countless hours pouring over her many Bibles and reading her grandchildren's poetry. Candy enjoyed teaching others and taught piano lessons and sign language to her grandchildren. She was a hands-on grandmother who picked up her grandchildren from school, attended every function they were in, and engaged their minds in religion, literature, and love. She loved to make others laugh and feel comfortable. Candy had a vigorous intellect and enjoyed reading sci-fi and religious texts. Candy enjoyed playing with her cats, sewing, crocheting, gardening and drinking a hot cup of Earl Grey. She was not attached to earthly belongings and valued her time with friends, family and God.
