Kandy Lynne Novack

August 14, 1956July 24, 2020

Kandy Lynne Novack, 63, of Seguin, Texas, passed away on July 24, 2020, at 10:10 p.m. in New Braunfels, Texas, as a result of complications due to Covid-19 and Leukemia.

The memorial service will be Thursday, July 30, 2020, at the Colonial Funeral Home in Universal City, Texas. Due to COVID-19 and limited gathering allowances, the funeral is by invitation only.

Kandy was born in Highland Park, Wayne County, Michigan to Alice Janice (Riley) and John Robert Argust.

Kandy spent most of her growing up years near Denver, Colorado, until she married Edward J. Novack, her husband of 46 years, two weeks after high school. After moving a few times with the Air Force, they made their home in Texas, residing in Converse for about 20 years before moving to farmland outside of Seguin for the last 20.

Kandy enjoyed playing the piano and flute, singing, sewing, crocheting, and watching Hallmark movies. She loved taking care of her family, both immediate and those of her church. Throughout her adult life, she served in churches as the pianist, organist, a choir member, and/or a Sunday School teacher. She loved the Truth of Jesus and loved to share it with others. Her favorite Bible verse was “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13

Kandy is preceded in death by both her father and mother as well as by her daughter, Lynne Elkins. She is survived by her husband Ed; the children she lovingly raised: April (Scott) Holmes and her children Ryan, Lexi, and Rhonda, Melissa Holm and her children Ashley and Marcus, Ed (Kristi) Novack Jr. and his children Cameron (Kerstin) and Hailey, Robert (Amy) Holm and his children Joseph and Jaxon, and Krystal (Oscar) Hernandez and her children Oscar, Edward, Louis, and Kandy; Lynne’s children Michael (Nathalia) and Colton (Gabrielle); four great-grandchildren, and her siblings: Karen Argust, John (Karen J.) Argust II, Kerry Holm, and Karmen Lemon, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

She was greatly loved and will be sorely missed, but we are grateful that we will see her again in heaven. “...Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” Matthew 25:21

The Novack family welcomes flowers, but donations in Kandy's memory can also be made to the Marion Baptist Church designated for missionary support. Their address is 312 W. Wetz St. Marion, TX 78124.

I have many memories of Aunt Kandy. From family reunions in Kansas to visits at grandma's house during Christmas. My most memorable though is while she was on a road trip to see her great-granddaughter she stopped a few nights each way and stayed with my family here in Georgia. My wife was with one of our newborn twins who was fighting RSV in the hosptial. Aunt Kandy stayed with my other children so I could go to work. The morning she left I took the other twin to the hospital because he was having difficulty. When Aunt Kandy called me for an update she asked if I needed her to come back. I assured her we would be ok and that she could finish her trip home. I will never forget her selfless love. Until we meet again!

Word's just can't express how much I feel for the Novack Family and what they are going through. Kandy was a beautiful woman inside and out. I enjoyed our time together and the bond we built over the last 5 years. It was always pleasant talking to her and the comfort she gave me when my husband passed away. I will never forget Kandy. God Bless all.

i cant even think of what to put here grandma was the best grandma anyone could ask for.
even though i wasnt always the best grandson and wasnt always nice she was always kind and caring and always treated me and my brother as if we were her own kids.
i could always trust her with anything and if i asked her not to tell anyone she wouldnt tell a soul.
I love you grandma rest easy now
