Candy had the same effervescent spirit as her mother, Janis! Your family has always been by our side as we all grew from small children way into adulthood. We have shared so many beautiful memories at Jackson Lake and too many parties to count!!! Candy loved the outdoors, camping, building fires and being in nature. Her passing has left many broken hearts here on earth, but Candy, fly high sweet angel and we will see you again soon!!! Love you!!!

Miss candy was one of the dance teachers i got the privilege to meet while taking dance classes with miss patsy. Yes she was hard on us but that was only because she believed in all of her students and knew we could do whatever we put our mind to. I can remember at first i would get upset or frustrated because she was being kinda tough on us. But thats only because she was helping us all reach our full potential and be the best dancers we could be. I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity and the blessing of meeting her. Im deeply saddened by her passing but i know down in my heart she is in a way better place. I send my love and prayers to the family

My mom was a beautiful woman and a warm spirit. She would be described as brash, bossy and hard on her students. But that was because she believed so strongly in her students. I got to learn from her daily throughout my childhood, and my young adulthood. My mom will always live in my heart and in my memories. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Please write a memory about her if you have one to share.

Thank you!
Alex Preston, Candy’s Son
