Obituary

Candace Lee (Champlain) Ellison, 73, passed away on Friday, January 24, 2020, at her home in Hornby, New York, after an extended battle with cancer. Candace was born on September 24, 1946 to Franklin and Beatrice (Maxwell) Champlain. Although dearly missed by many, Candace now resides with the Angels in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Family was important to Candace and she delighted in organizing regular gatherings, as well as lovingly following the lives of her stepdaughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and other extended family members. After the passing of her parents, Candace became the family matriarch, assuring that all stayed in touch and supported one another. She was the glue that kept the family together. Her compassion, her insights, her help and her smile will be cherished and remembered by all.

Candace enjoyed a successful career as a Payroll Professional for Ingersoll-Rand, Dresser-Rand, and Corning Inc. and continued to enjoy crafts, gardening, canning, holiday planning, and playing Bunco with her girlfriends. She was particularly partial to sunflowers and her cat, Floyd.

Candace is survived by her husband, the love of her life, Rick Ellison, who remained at her side and provided loving care, during her extended challenges. Candace is also survived by her siblings, Cheryle (James) Boorom, Craig (Mary) Champlain and Cynda (Scott) Poley, stepdaughters Stephanie (Rich) Danieu and Kimberly Ellison, grandchildren Aiden, Mara, Ava and Meena, in addition to her many friends whom she cherished throughout her life.

Family and friends are invited to call at Philips Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 17 W. Pulteney St. Corning, NY 14830 on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 11:00 am-1:00 pm with a memorial service immediately follow at 1:00 pm.

Candy, even though I have known you almost 72 1/2 years of your life, getting the opportunity to spend a little time with you the past 2 yrs. I realized how much of your life I had missed. Thanks to Father Time most have those memories have now gone. I have to try to go back to when we were little cousins and hanging out while all the aunts and uncles gathered which seemed to be every weekend. While they did what adults do, the cousins played and I do remember it was you who kept them in control and out of trouble. I was probably was supposed to help but probably didn't. You were who they looked up to and depended on, although not always listened to. Rest in peace, you are loved and will be missed. I promise to try to spend a little more time with Rick. Your cousins Steve, Barb, Chris, Mark, Ellen, Nancy, Tim & Tracy.
