Dr.  Candice M. Chase Obituary
Dr. Candice M. Chase Feb. 14, 1950 - Jul. 17, 2014 ESSEX - Dr. Candice M. Chase, 64, passed away on Thursday, July 17, 2014 at Greentree Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation in Waterford. Born on February 14, 1950 in Norwich, she was the daughter to the late Chauncey Chase and the late Evelyn (De Champlain) Chase. Candice was an extra-ordinary person of depth and love. She passionately cared about the earth and its creatures. She loved animals, birds, and her beloved dog Gwen. As administrator and tour guide for The Audubon Society, she traveled world-wide in such places as Africa and the Netherlands. She lived in many places: Hawaii, Connecticut, Maine, upstate New York, Boston, and her beautiful California. Candice achieved her doctorate in East West Psychology at the California School of Integral Studies. An extraordinary intellect, she had an unending drive to learn. A gentle, sweet and kind soul, she also had a determined heart. She could play ice hockey as well as nurture a bird with a damaged wing. She edited doctoral theses for students, exposing her to the most advanced research and studies in psychology. Candice's crowning glory as a human being was unconditional love for all human and non-human beings. She not only studied Buddhism, she practiced loving kindness toward all. Once a friend, always a friend. Her notes and cards are worthy of publishing. What a beautiful writer. Candice is survived by her brothers, Chet Chase of Jewett City and Craig Chase of Old Saybrook; and sister, Cynthia Chase of Essex and many other relatives and friends who will miss her dearly. Family will receive relatives and friends on Saturday, July 19, 2014 from 11:00 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. at Leffler Funeral Home, 30 N. Main St., Jewett City. We will come together in celebration of Candice's life. Interment will be held on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. at the Jewett City Cemetery, Sioux St. For the online memorial or to write a message of comfort, please visit http://www.lefflerfuneralhome.com/ In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Oncology Center of Middlesex Hospital, or the National Audubon Society.
