About Candy Owen

Candy Owen, wife of David, was a mother to three (Ellen, Katherine, Robin) and grandmother to four boys and two girls, and step grandmother to two more girls and two more boys. She was recently retired from Wakefield council and prior to that she worked at Heathview school. She was an active camper, real ale campaigner (CAMRA), women's pension activist, knitter, quilter, dog lover and friend. She travelled annually to Phoenix, Arizona to visit her daughters and five of her grandchildren & locally in the 'van' with David & their camping friends. She was diagnosed with bowel cancer in late 2016 & though she fought valiantly, bravely and uncomplainingly, she lost her battle in June 2018 after the cancer spread to her liver. She died in The Prince of Wales Hospice with her children and David by her side and holding her hand. She was loved & will be missed by many.
