Candace Kae Kelsey, 75, passed away on February 5, 2021 at her home in Muncie.

She was born September 28, 1945 in Muncie, to Clifford and Betty (Newman) Wood.

Candace graduated from Muncie Central High School and was always active in local theater.  She starred in many roles at the Muncie Civic Theater and remained engaged in theater throughout the majority of her life.  She always had a unique energy and personality that was infectious to all who loved her.

Candace worked for WERK in Muncie for many years which led to her buying and operating a radio station in Peoria, Illinois.  Candace also lived in Nashville, Indiana where she owned an art gallery, which was her passion project, as well as Ft. Myers and Jacksonville, Florida, returning to Muncie for the latter part of her life.

Candace is survived by three loving daughters that meant the world to her, Laura Drumm (husband, Peter),Cathy Loft (husband, Scott), and Julie McClendon (husband, Bryan);  four cherished grandchildren, Alexander Mitch (wife, Stephanie), Zachary Mitch, Brittney McClendon, and Joshua Loft; great grandson, “Little Man” Jaxton Mitch; Jack Kelsey’s daughter Trisha Stanley (husband, Joe), her daughter Paige and son, Rex; and a cousin, Nancy Wilson.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husbands, Jerry Childs and Jack Kelsey; and her sister, Judy McKillip.

A Private Memorial Service and Celebration of Candace’s Life will be held at a later date.
