She will be truly and dearly missed by all who knew her and had the privilege of meeting this wonderful woman. She was always willing to help anyone anytime she could. Candy worked as a custodian for over 20 years for the public schools and after her retirements she worked for a local Home Health Care Agency in Espanola where she loved all her clients and considered them family and at any point in time you could find Candy on the phone with one friend or another as she loved all of them and truly enjoyed being on the phone with each of them.
She also truly loved and enjoyed spending time with all of her grandkids, because that smile never left her face when anyone of her grandkids were around. Being a mother and grandmother was one of her greatest joys and she still also made sure that her own grown children were taken care of on a daily basis.
