BROWN, Candis Lee (Candy)

It is with great sadness, that the family of Candis Lee Brown announce her passing on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at the age of 66 years, after losing her courageous battle to cancer. Candy will be lovingly remembered by her husband and best friend of 40 years, Dave and her precious daughter, Rebecca (Becky). Candy leaves to mourn her passing six brothers and two sisters, Chick (Dee Martins), Don (Wendy) and Doug (Kathy); half-brother’s Sam (Barb), Ted, Scott (Darlene) and Dale (Deb); her sister Teri (Glen) Brockoff and half-sister Jackie (Kim) Gerbig.

Candy will be fondly remembered by her mother-in-law, Shirley Brown and sister-in-law and friend Deb Brown. She will be forever remembered and sadly missed by numerous nieces and nephews as well as many great-nieces and great-nephews and cousins. Grieving her loss are countless, extremely close friends from near and far.

Candy was predeceased by her parents, Les & Flo Kennedy; loving sister Joy Kayfish; special aunt Pearl Rogerson; special Grandma Ida Kennedy; stepmother Theresa Kennedy; father-in-law Gary Brown and brother-in-law Alun Brown.

Candy was born in Shellbrook, SK on July 15, 1953. Following a tragic accident that claimed her mother Flo, Candy from the age of one month, was raised along with her sisters in Leask, SK., by her Aunt Pearl and Grandmother Ida. Candy received her education in Leask from grades 1-11 and graduated from Neilburg Composite School in 1970.

Candy worked in Calgary at many different jobs but her working days ceased when MS (was diagnosed 1998) took over her physical ability to drive.

The love of Candy’s life, next to her family, was reading. Even that became difficult following an MS attack, as it quite often would leave her temporarily without vision in one eye. Candy was diagnosed in 2018 with lung cancer. She fought the battle without complaint until she became too tired to fight any longer.

A Memorial Service will be held for Candy on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 2:00 pm at Choice Memorial Cremation & Funeral Services, 105-4715 13th Street NE Calgary, AB with Reverend David Pickett officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Candy’s memory to MS Society Calgary Chapter

Candy and I were friends since high school in Leask. One winter I made Candy laugh every time we were out and about. I wore these stupid fashion boots and fell down frequently. Her favorite time was at the packed hockey rink. It didn't help that I was wearing my Grandmother's 50 lb fur coat. My sister Lorraine and I were blessed to have this friendship all these years. We will see you on the other side. Much love.
