Candace and her family attended Wayfaring Church Of God in Christ under the leadership of her grandmother, Pastor Broy J. Hobbs. After his transition, Candace and her family joined The Life Center Church Of God In Christ under the leadership of Pastor T.L. Barrett, Jr. They became members in 1983 and she joined the Royal Voices Of Life Choir.
Music was Candace’s passion. She loved singing and began directing choirs at an early age, often directing her grandmother through songs, and correcting her performance at the age of two years old. As she became older, her talent afforded her the opportunity to travel with Anna Mae Crockett Ford, the National Director of the Churches Of God In Christ, and the Billy Carson Singers to the Youth Congress and Sunday Conventions.
Candace attended Little Flower Elementary School and graduated from Whitney Young High School.
Candace was a proud mother and grandmother, and she found the most joy and fulfillment in caring for and nurturing her children and grandchildren, providing each of them with unconditional love.
Through her faith in God, Candace overcame many challenges in her body. However, on Wednesday October 16, 2019, Candace went home to be with the Lord.
