The family will always cherish Candis’s giving heart and how proud she was of her Metis heritage. She accomplished so many things in her journey here, but the family are especially proud of her being the first female Fire Chief and Air Traffic Controller in Ocean Falls, British Columbia. She had a passion for babies, books and the renewal of springtime. She loved to dance and to pass on her knowledge of herbal and medicinal plants. But beyond all these passions, her greatest passion was always for her family and friends. Candis will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. The family wishes to express their gratitude to all the staff at Breton Care Center, for all the kind and caring ways they looked after Candis during her time there. A celebration of Candis’ life will take place on April 9, 2022, at 2:00 pm, in Liberty Hall, Bluffton, Alberta. The hall is just off Highway 611, between Range Roads 23 and 24.
