October 18, 1956 – June 5, 2019

It is with profound sadness that the family of Candace “Candy” Dika, age 62 years, announces her peacefully passing on Wednesday, June 5, 2019.

She will be sadly missed by her husband Lawrence; daughter Laura and her fiance Evan; siblings Barb, Deb (Dwight), Carol (Ed), Pat (Ken) and Hugh (Kathy); in-laws Donna (Fred), Lorraine (Peter) and Kristine, as well as her many nieces, nephews and life long friend Sue Jantunen.

Candace was predeceased by her parents Leslie and Eileen Baxter; her son Trevor Koval; brothers-in-law Jerry Cizmar and George Mealey and father-in-law Peter “Peppy” Dika.

The family is grateful for the support of Dr. Simpson and all of her colleagues, as well as the nursing team at St. Joseph's.

As Candy always said, “There was no parade when I got here. I want no parade when I leave.” To honour her wishes, there will be no funeral service or celebration of life.

Due to allergies in the home, in lieu of flowers and food, a donation may be made to Candy's favourite charity, Operation Smile, or any other charity of your choice.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Westfort Chapel, 420 West Gore Street at James.

Larry, Laura and family,
Our heartfelt sympathies go out to all of you. We have fond memories of Candy's wit, smile and humour. We really enjoyed the many years Candy worked at the bakery. She was a hard, loyal worker and she has been deeply missed. We share many stories about her. In fact, we have a book with some of "Candy quotes" written down so they will not be forgotten. She was one of a kind!
Thinking of all of you. Take Care... Tammy and Gerald Van Elburg
