Kandie was very creative and talented. She enjoyed baking and worked for many years at Dunkin’

cannoli were her specialties. She also worked at the KC Museum, at Union Station and Aisle of Capri

In her spare time, ,Kandie wrote poetry and was published in two books. She developed her own line of
fragrant candles and caramel apple liquor. She loved garage sales, shopping on Wish.com and never
missed a single episode of “The Walking Dead” or its spinoffs.
Kandie’s love of children led her to create a charity Motorcycle Run “Together, We Rise”. Money raised
during the run was used to buy back packs and basic supplies for foster children who are frequently
moved without anything to call their own. This was Kandie’s passion. She was involved with Freedom of
Road Riders and Visions MC of KC with her husband “Hoss”. They loved the freedom of the open road.
Kandie’s bright light has been taken from us far too soon. She touched us as a sister, aunt and friend.
