Kandie K. Magnuson
June 27, 1956 – January 9, 2021
Kandie Kay Magnuson was welcomed to Heaven on January 9, 2021 at age 64. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded in love after a graciously brief battle with cancer. She was born to Jerry and DeeAnn Knight on June 27, 1956. After graduating from high school, Kandie followed her heart and chased her dreams by marrying her husband, fellow horse lover, Dana Magnuson. Together, they had 3 children: Arene, John, Cullan, and 6 beautiful grand-babies. Kandie had many talents, but mostly, her love language was cooking. We all have fond memories of her in the kitchen continuously working to create meals, snacks, and memories that we will hold dear. She also loved her painting, crafting, and sewing. She was always the hardest worker in the room, rarely idle. Her heart belonged to Jesus and she lived her life striving to be Christ-like. She taught her children by example. This example and many memorable stories will continue on for future generations of her family. Her family and friends take comfort in knowing she went unafraid and sure. No doubt there was an enormous smile upon her face as she heard, “Welcome home my loved one, well done.” We’ll see you in the barn, Mama. A private family funeral service will be held for Kandie. Calling will be held Friday, January 22, 2021 from 3 to 7 PM at D.O. McComb and Sons Pine Valley Park Funeral Home, 1320 E. Dupont Road. For online condolences, please visit www.mccombandsons.com

To Dana and Kids:
My deepest sympathy for your loss. My heart is heavy in prayer for each of you, but so thankful for the peace she knew in Jesus. Kandie will always have a special place in my heart. Our friendship has endured since the summer before we entered seventh grade – and regardless of how much time we spent together over the years, we have always been able to pick right up where we left off – enjoying our conversations and updates.
As young moms, we spent lots of time together, canning and crafting, with endless conversations about parenting, marriage and Jesus. She had so many questions and always wanted to learn. She was a beautiful, special friend and I will always be thankful that God allowed us to be a part of each other’s journeys. I can only imagine her Heavenly celebration.
