Candy was a pillar of strength in her role as a mother of 3, as a wife, as a sister of 10 siblings, and as an aunt and great-aunt to many. No matter what problem the family was facing, she always found a way to help, ignoring her own challenges. She worked as a laboratory technician at Allegheny General Hospital for over 35 years. She also worked as an EMT, and as manager at Skateland and Romp’n Roll. Candy was also an avid dirt track racing fan which led her to working as a videographer and pit steward at Lernerville Speedway and Pittsburgh Motor Speedway. No matter who she met at the race track, she always greeted them with a smile and offered a caring ear. Throughout her life she was also involved at Glenshaw Valley Presbyterian Church as a member and youth group leader. Candy never let any obstacle stand in her way as she battled her many ailments. She always put everyone else’s happiness ahead of hers.
