Candy Gill

Candace Evonne Gill was born November 18, 1961, in Bellefonte, Penn., and went to the Lord’s Home on November 12, 2022. She was the beloved wife of David Gill of Lewistown for 42 years and mother of Amy Myers of Billings. She was a positive, loving, giving, and caring person who will be greatly missed; we look forward to reuniting with her someday.

Candy enjoyed the outdoors, living in the log cabin home she built with David, and hiking, camping, fishing, and traveling. Candy was a multi-talented person who enjoyed painting, gardening, crafts, baking, and cooking. She began performing as a majorette in high school, and continued this talent by spending many years volunteering at and performing with the Dance Syndicate of Lewistown, where she was dedicated to helping kids travel to various competitions. She was a member of the Church of the Nazarene. Candy is a 1979 graduate of Bellefonte High School and a 1986 nursing graduate of the Pasco-Hernando Community College. Her passion was caring for others, starting her career at the Central Montana Medical Center, then with Dr. LaFever. Her devotion to the comfort of the elderly led her to nursing at Valle Vista Manor and CMMC Home Health and Hospice Services, which allowed her to be cared for by her nurses and close friends at the end of her life.

Candy is survived by her parents, Dale and Gail Benner, her siblings, Greg and Kimberly, her in-laws, Tommie and Wilma Gill, brother and sister-in-law, Dan and Lori Gill, and several nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their thanks to Candy’s friends, family, and medical team for all the love and support, especially her dear friends and co-workers at CMMC Home Health and Hospice Services for their love and care.

Friends and family are invited to attend the Celebration of Life at the Fergus Center for Performing Arts on Saturday, December 3 at 2 p.m., with a reception at the Church of the Nazarene to follow. Candy requested no black attire, and dancers are invited to wear costumes. In lieu of flowers, cards, or gifts, the family requests donations be made to the Dance Syndicate in her memory to support the artistic expression of Lewistown youth.

Arrangements are under the care of Creel Funeral Home. Candy’s family and friends can share memories and condolences at
