Candy, before she became disabled, cared for children in her own daycare business. She was a lover of traveling, waterfalls, snow and bears. She was crazy for OSU Buckeyes football. She could be heard cheering them on before you could get in the house! Candy was well know for her sweet and candid humor. Her memories are wonderful and she will be missed deeply.
