Candace was born on Oct. 30, 1944, in Walker Valley, N.Y., to Joan and Eugene Weed. She is preceded in death by her parents and sister, Cheryl. Surviving her are two sisters, Maxine Weed (and husband Thomas Rumley) and Jennifer Weed, and a brother Glenn Weed (and wife Kathy); her lifelong love and partner Mark Sullivan; her son Dean Bubolo (and partner Amber McComber) and her two daughters, Sage Martin (and husband Alex Martin) and Jessica Galbo (and husband Mark Galbo); her stepdaughter Jessica Sullivan; her stepson, Colin Sullivan; nieces and nephews Sara Halferty, Matthew and Jason Stanger, Erin and Shaun Weed; and seven beloved grandchildren – Miles, Samson, Arabella, Henry, Jacob, Joseph and Mateo.
Candace lived a full life, rich with adventure and the desire to experience the natural world – rafting the Rio Grand, hiking the Grand Canyon, fussing in her exquisite gardens – with the people she loved. She was a passionate advocate of preserving the natural environment and had a deep love and appreciation for Southern Utah.
Candace took great pride in her seven grandchildren and has given them, among many things, a deep appreciation for nature, a love of baking, dancing and singing, a sense of fun, mystery and possibility, and most importantly, her undivided attention and the knowledge that they were the most important things in her life. Candace gave unconditional love, her innate gift, to every life she touched. She is remembered as a strong force and the center, the matriarch, of our beautiful family. Candace was a unique and precious gift. We thank her for all she did and for giving us all a fantastic time. Candace was cremated and requested a picture memorial with an open house at her son’s home in Norwood.
The memorial will be held Saturday, September 15, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., at 1415 Paradox Street (off of S. Pine St.; call 327-4094 for information). Food and drinks will be provided. A heartfelt thanks to her breast-cancer support group, the hospice team and the Monticello, Norwood and Telluride communities for their loving support.
