Gresham High School in 1977. For the next couple

years she worked at Rockwood Fred Meyer as a

she met her second husband Ron Dey. The two were

wed on September 14, 1990 were they spent the

rest of their life together. Ron and Candy had two

children together Lauren and Jessica Dey. After the

birth of Lauren, Candy retired from working and become

a full time mother. This was the position that

she enjoyed the most. Candy was very active in her

children's lives from room mom in her children's

school, Girl Scout cookie mom, dance team mom,

to being a constant chauffeur to her children's sporting

events. However, her favorite thing to do was to

make sure everyone was fed. Candy loved to cook

and everyone who knew her would be in agreement

that she was darn good at it. Anyone that knew Candy

knew how much she loved her dachshunds. She

also enjoyed camping, crabbing, crafting, quilting,

gardening, and fi nding hearts in nature. Candy was

a very giving person and had a wondering group of

supporting friends.
