Kandice, born Dawn Marie Henderson, was born in Toledo, Ohio on January 31, 1965. She was the daughter of the late David Clifford Henderson and Jean Marie Quentmeyer.

Kandice led a colorful life and was definitely a free spirit and her own agent. She was known to march to the tune of her own drummer. She had an outgoing personality, influenced others to smile regardless of the situation, an infectious laugh, a smile that could brighten a room and a great sense of humor. She loved animals and even taught her sister's pit bull how to "whisper bark."

Preceding her in death in addition to her father, were her grandpapa, Arthur Quentmeyer who always said she was the apple of his eye, and grandmother, Dorothy Shafer Quentmeyer, paternal grandparents Clifford F Henderson and Beatrice Ward Henderson.

Survivors include her mother, Jean Quentmeyer; sons, Keith O'Shea; Korey O'Shea (Avril), daughter, Haley O'Neill; grandchildren Maya O'Shea and Noah O'Shea; sister, Melani Rigsby and brothers, David Henderson Jr and Ronald Henderson. She is also survived by her life-long friend and sister of the heart Stefani Daniell (Chris) and family. She is further survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Kandice will be cremated. A celebration of life gathering will be held March 7th in the San Francisco Bay Area. For details contact Korey O’Shea @ (650) 270-4563.
