SOUTH PARIS — Candace Louise (Smith) Howard, 62, of Albany Township, died Sunday, June 30, after a short battle with cancer, at the Market Square Center. She was the wife of the late Peter Howard Sr., who died June 20, 1997.

She was born on March 26, 1951, in Norway, a daughter of the late Gardner and Helen (Trimback) Smith. She attended local area schools, spending three years at Gould Academy before graduating from Telstar Regional High School.

Candace loved to watch NASCAR, rooting for her favorite driver, Jimmie Johnson. She also enjoyed crossword puzzles, watching TV, “Spirit,” her dog, hunting and fishing, as well as being on the computer and cooking. However, her favorite times were the ones she shared with family and friends.

She is survived by her daughter, Lorie White and her husband, Rodney; and her son, Peter Howard and his fiancee, Jessi Smith. She also leaves three granddaughters, Kristilee and Karen White, and Shawna Howard-Berube; and two stepgranddaughters, Harlowe and Ashlin, all from Albany Township; as well as her close cousin, Penny Allen; and good friends, Mabel and Frank Buiniskas.
