Candy lived a full life surrounding herself with her sons, grandchildren, and beloved twin sister Carol and brother -in-law Rick. Candy enjoyed spending her free time creating “stampin” cards by hand for all occasions for family and friends. When she wasn't stamping or with her grandchildren you could find Candy strolling down Main Street in Disney World with her fun-loving twin sister Carol. Candy and Carol were two peas in a pod, always the life of the party. Candy loved to travel around the world with her family and friends, while traveling Candy collected many Engel-Puppe Dolls from Germany. She was an avid fan of the New Orleans Saints and loved watching football on Sundays with her sons.  

Candy brought joy to all who crossed her path, she was a selfless, kind, loving, beautiful person. She was a cherished mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. She has left a lasting impression on all of us and was taken from this world far too soon; Candy will be missed eternally by all friends and family throughout the country. In lieu of flowers hug someone you love, or contributions can be made in her memory to the American Heart Association.  A Memorial Mass will be offered in Candy’s memory, to be announced in the near future for her family and friends in the Lehigh Valley.
