Candice was born in Tampa, Florida, on October 15, 1969, to the delight of her parents, Ann Daniels Eaton and Albert Franklin (Frenchy) Eaton. She was a beautiful baby that loved to laugh and looked for the happiness in every situation, the signature trait of her personality her entire life.
She attended grade school in Ft. Worth and Ranger and graduated high school in College Station, Texas. As a child, Candice, “Skeeter” to her dad and “Belle” to her Mamaw Daniels, liked outdoor play, school sports and distance running. She loved to play and laugh at the antics of her cousins and friends and, in turn, they loved to hear her beautiful laugh; they knew how much she loved them. She received her BA from Texas A & M and worked as a business analyst/trouble shooter until her illness.
On December 30, 2009, Candice gave birth to her greatest joy, her son Colton Ziad Khatib. She was loving and patient with her “Coltie”. Many an issue was resolved when Colton and his Mom had one of their talks. When illness took her strength, she still found joy in having him near and watching him have fun.
Candice loved the Lord. She loved to sing to the Lord, especially with her Momma. She believed in the Lord's healing power and even as a child, if she felt sick, she would say “Momma pray”.
Candi loved people and always looked forward to having fun with her friends and family. She was that special kind of friend that truly loved you and would put your wants above hers. One friend expressed it this way: “She was one of the sweetest, kindest, fun souls I've ever known.”
Candice was preceded in death by her Dad, Albert Eaton, of Bonham, Texas; her maternal grandparents, Jack (Daddo) and Byrl (Mamaw) Daniels of Ranger, Texas; her paternal grandparents, Ed and Velma Eaton of Lenora, Kansas; her uncles, Jay Daniels of Hurst, Texas, and Jackie Daniels of Eastland, Texas; her cousins, Troy Daniels of Eastland, Texas, and Joshua Daniels of Ft. Worth, Texas.
She is survived by her son, Colton Khatib; her mother, Ann Eaton; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks for all the love and support her family and friends have given during these last difficult years.
