Candice Turner Williams

Suffolk, VA

Candice, Daughter of Anne and Johnson Turner and lifelong resident of Suffolk passed into eternal rest Sunday March 18, 2018 at home with her family by her side.

Candice is predeceased by her mother and father. She is survived by her husband Roger; sons, Clayton and Michael (Mandy); grandsons, Adam and Cole; Aunt Linda Simpson; Brother David Draper (Angie); Aunt and Uncle Dori and Bill Turner, and numerous other relatives.

Candice’s passion early on in life was that of skilled equestrian, showing her horse,“Rafaat”. After Marriage, on March 17, 1974 she transformed this passion to love of family and the mothering of all animals.

Fostering their love, she and Roger dedicated themselves to be one. They succeeded and he held her hand as she gently eased away. The family would like to Thank Mary Cutchins for her love and support shown towards our family.

Roger and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Candy and i use to play together as kids in Lakeside, I was 2 doors down from her Grandparents, and we went to SHS together.

Roger, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Like several of my classmates, I, too have special memories with Candy -- like our Brownie troop with her mom as one of our leaders and memories made through our years at Suffolk High. She was a special friend to many. May God continue to give you peace and comfort as you and your family reflect and remember in the days ahead.

The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.

Dear Roger and family,
I remember Candy with deepest affection as another Turner cousin. Her arrival as a baby to Ann and Johnson was a glorious gift to them and all of our family. I have kept up with y’all through William and Dorri and mourn your loss.

Pat Turner

Roger and family...although we haven’t seen y’all recently, please know our prayers and thoughts are with you all as you go through these difficult days. Candi fought long and hard valiantly through the years. She was loved and will be missed, but knowing she’s not suffering and in the arms of our Lord prayerfully brings peace to your hearts.
Sorry we were out of town, but please know she’ll always be remembered with love and a smile. You were blessed.
