Candace Sue Blissit, 69, went peacefully to be with her loving Savior Jesus Christ early Thursday morning, April 23, 2020 at her home in Arlington.

PRIVATE Graveside Service: 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, April 28, at Hawkins Cemetery, Arlington. A Celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Memorials: In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Mission Arlington or National Right to Life.

She was born January 11, 1951 and was welcomed by her adoptive parents, Jim and Renee Williams and brother, Guy. Candy was a graduate of Coronado High School in El Paso in 1967 and met the love of her life at UTEP in a survey of the New Testament class. They were married on June 9, 1972. Candy and Mike grew in their faith as young Christians and Candy began her career as a kindergarten teacher until they welcomed their first daughter, Elizabeth in 1976 and Jonathan, Deborah and Andrew followed in 1978, 1980 and 1986 respectively. She thrived at home raising kids and spending time with her best friends. Candy and Mike relocated to Arlington, Texas in ’91. She resumed teaching and later became a bilingual pre-K teacher and retired from AISD after almost 3 decades of teaching.

Candy had an enthusiasm for life that came from being rooted and grounded in Christ’s love for her. Candy never met a stranger and she couldn’t help but let that love overflow on anyone she came across. She shared her love of Spanish and the Lord with anyone who would listen. She will be remembered for her gentle, kind evangelistic heart that transcended cultural barriers.

Survivors: Candy is survived by her husband, Mike Blissit; children, Elizabeth, Jonathan and wife Lacey, Deborah, Andrew and wife Ashley; and grandchildren, Dakota, Sierra, Jasmine, Sarah, Kaylee, Lydia and Ava; brother, Guy Randolph Williams; her nephews, Eric and Dale; as well as her newly found birth family: brothers, Jack Eberling, Bruce Eberling, Ronald Reynolds; sister, Carol Ann Chase and their children; and many, many precious friends.

Mike and family, sending our sympathy and prayers during this difficult time. Candy was the most genuine and joyful person anyone could ever meet. We will miss her smile, loving hugs and bilingual quotes of scripture. I can imagine her greeting those coming through the gates. If you don't see her when you get there give her a few minutes she may be late, but worth the wait. :-)

Mike, I am praying for you and your family as you walk these days of losing Candy. I don't think I've ever met anyone who so consistently and vivaciously lived their faith in Christ as Candy did. And I loved it that she shared Him with everyone! Candy was a bundle of energy, and great energy for Him. She was always an inspiration to me, and I know many others.

May the Lord's comfort be great in the days ahead.

Please accept my prayers and deep sympathies for the loss of Candace on our earthly home. She will always be remembered for her kind and welcoming heart, her amazing smile and her love of Christ and her family. Every time that I was around her, she lit up a room, and she just made you feel like you were part of the family. I know that she loved our Lord and that you will all be together again one day in heaven. Until then, keep her memory in your hearts. Sending my love, and I'm so sorry that with this situation, it makes it impossible to have a service right now. I look forward to celebrating her life with the family one day soon.

Love Shannon Clay
