Candace Winnett, 68, fell into the arms of Jesus, and was taken by angels to heaven on January 11, 2019. Candace was born on March 29, 1950 to Henry and June Baxter (Sanders).
Candace retired from Kimberly Clark in 2006 with over 25 years of service. She loved to crochet. She would make a blanket for anyone and specialize it to their taste.
Candace was never far from Shadow, her dog and best friend. They truly adored one another. Shadow will miss you dearly.
Candace is survived by son Michael (Judy) Winnett, grandchildren, Shad, Shawon, and Kayla. Son, William Winnett and daughter Shari (Steven) Sitzberger, grandchildren, Cole, Hunter, and Hope, and three great grandchildren. Candace is also survived by siblings, Robert (Jeanette) Orheim, Joyce Brain, Donald (Virginia) Orheim, Peggy VandeZande, Debra (Bruce) Heimerman, and her very close sister Kathleen (Dale) Heinzen and many nieces and nephews.
Candace was preceded in death by her mother June Baxter (nee Sanders), father Henry Baxter, a sister Melanie Norton (Kenneth), a brother Oscar Orheim (Sharon), a brother-in-law Harvard VandeZande and nieces Vicky Wockenfus, Lisa (John) Stuempges.
We would also like to thank the Hospice nurses who took care of Candace at Cherry Meadows, especially Lou who made it all happen.
Going against traditional ways, our Mother decided to be cremated and stated she did not want a funeral or showing. Although we did not agree, those were Candace's wishes and we should respect her decision.
