October 13, 1953 – March 6, 2020
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of a woman of great kindness, honesty and integrity. Candice Jean Scott passed away peacefully on March 6, 2020 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, at the age of 66.
Candice was born on October 13, 1953 in Vancouver B.C., and grew up in Ladysmith on Vancouver Island and in Vancouver. She attended David Thompson Secondary School and was a two-time graduate of Simon Fraser University where she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree, a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree, and teacher training. Her first career was teaching Elementary school in Whitehorse; Kelowna and Keremeos, B.C.; and Brooks, Alberta. She later ran a successful bookkeeping and accounting business in Whitehorse where she resided and worked for many years.
Actively involved in her community, she volunteered for many events at the Yukon Arts Centre and was on the Board of Directors for numerous non-profit agencies. Candice had the qualities of a true Yukoner – strength, courage, independence and an adventurous spirit. She loved nature, camping and hiking in the North where she explored remote areas few people have seen. She often walked the Millennium Trail along the Yukon River, her place of peace. Candice also enjoyed global travel and learning about other cultures with trips that included many parts of Canada, the UK and the USA, Europe, Iceland and Finland.
Candice had a life-long love of music, completed Grade 12 of the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music in piano, and in recent years, resumed piano lessons to fine tune her skills.
Predeceased by her devoted parents Samuel and Doris Scott of Maple Ridge, B.C., Candice is survived by her loving brother Stephen Scott and his wife, Patricia Enns, niece Samantha Scott, and nephew Drew Scott. A beloved and supportive aunt, Candice helped both Samantha and Drew with their post-secondary education. Candice is also survived by numerous cousins and relatives in B.C., Saskatchewan and New Brunswick.
A Celebration of Life in the Yukon will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations would be gratefully accepted at Whitehorse Concerts, CPAWS Yukon, and the Yukon Women’s Transition Home.
Candice will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by all who knew her. Safe Journey friend.
