Candice L. Padgett (Luce), of Brighton Township, PA, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away on November 10 at the age of 74. Candi was raised in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, PA. She was a graduate of North Allegheny High School and Geneva College, where she earned a degree in Elementary Education. She spent most of her adult life in Beaver County as a dedicated mom to her three children. Candi’s family will remember her lifelong passionate love of dogs, including her treasured pets over the years. They will also remember her deep love of family vacations to Hilton Head, SC, and her enthusiasm for spending time with her family at the holidays. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought her immense joy and pride, particularly in her final years. Candi had a well-known sweet tooth, and her children will toast her memory with her favorite chocolate milkshake. Mom, we’re glad you are at peace. Rest easy and fly free.
Candi is survived by her children Mandy Dlugos (Dale), Robert Padgett, Jr. (Janel), Jeffrey Padgett (Jennifer); six grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, her brother Jeff Luce (Gale) of Maryland, and her sister-in-law Noreen Luce of South Carolina. She was preceded in death by her husband Robert, her parents Robert and Willa Luce, and her brother Robert Luce, Jr. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Beaver County Humane Society, Animal Friends, or the charity of your choice supporting pet rescue and adoption.
Friends and family will be received at Gabauer-Lutton Funeral Home at 117 Blackhawk Rd, Beaver Falls, PA 15010 on Saturday, November 18th from 10am-11:30am. A brief memorial service will be held immediately following the visitation. A celebration of life for both Bob and Candi will be held at a later date.
