Candi was brought to us by God on February 22, 1946 and carried to her heavenly garden on January 1, 2013. She was known by so many for her true kindness, huge heart, affection and genuine disposition to others, but taking care of her family was most important to her. Candi’s favorite things were always homemade and handmade because it came from the heart. Her extreme love for animals was nothing small. She was proud of the extensive classic car collection that she shared with her lifelong husband and best friend. All day car shows and evening cruises brought her pure joy. Under the Sutherlin skies, her gardening therapy was her sunshine. Her family will keep her traditions alive, treasure each memory and cherish her smile. Candi was an amazing wife, mother, sister, friend and co-worker. Survivors include her husband Larry Grimit of 35 wonderful years (together for 40 years); her four children, Scott Arnett, Hallie Williams, Jeff Grimit and wife Michelle, and Terri Beecroft and husband Troy; two siblings Chuck Cole and wife Marlene of Olympia, Washington, and Mary Havens and husband John of Dallas, Oregon; eleven grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. Forever she will be missed, but never forgotten. Funeral services will be held Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 2 p.m. at Sutherlin Chapel of the Roses. Interment will be held at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon. Those who wish may pay respects Friday, January 11 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Sutherlin Chapel of the Roses.
