Candice Lee Hentschel Candice Lee (nee Teafoe) Hentschel, 32, passed away Feb. 1, 2013, at her home in Kingston, surrounded by her most cherished boys and family. Candi was born on Aug. 6, 1980, in Missoula, Mont., to Jerry Teafoe and Jackie Leman. She was a beautiful person and spirit with a genuine smile that touched all who were privileged to have known her. These characteristics are carried through to her boys along with her love of Jesus. She was the most amazing caring and loving mother anyone that could ask for. People fell in love with her after just one conversation. Candi was not a wife to stand behind her husband she was a wife who walked next to and supported him, making him a better person, husband and example for his boys. But not only did she provide the support to make him a better person, she provided the nurturing, mothering, caring, giving, deepest heartfelt love a mother could have for her boys. All of this was made possible through the worst of it because of her eternal love and faith in Jesus Christ. She fought her battle with cancer with the most optimistic of outlooks, keeping her boys as her guiding light to confront her disease head on. We would like to think she is peacefully walking with the angels, but we know she is actually rocking out to some Rolling Stones smiling just as she always did. Looking down on us and patiently waiting for us at the gate with our tickets to get in. She will be forever in our hearts and missed very very much. Candi is survived by her spouse of 11 years, William Hentschel; her sons, William, Luke and Benjamin; her grandfather, Donald Tredup; her grandfather, Jerome (Margaret) Teafoe; her father, Jerry (Marie) Teafoe; her mother, Jackie (Keith) Leman; her brother, Eric (Tami) Teafoe; her sister, Brant Teafoe; her nephew, Cody Teafoe; her niece, Amanda Teafoe; and her niece, Genevieve Teafoe.
