    I remember many times being with Candy at Grandpa and Grandpas house on Travis Street. Those were such good days and memories. Candy loved to follow the Rohde family tree, and came up with so much information, somethings that none of us knew. I’m sure Uncle Tony and Aunt Bonnie and Lana were waiting with open arms. RIP Candy

    I have been expecting my apart ment door here in asssisted living and it would be
    Candy coming to visit now at Easter time. She always had some type of a treat representing the holiday. We would visit with her telling me the various shut ins she would be visiting. She also made contact with her God parents Fern and Bob Traister.
    The day seven of Tony and Lavonne Lund’s children were baptized at the Holmen Lutheran Church is a cherished memory. I will cherish the memories of Candy’s visits.
    Cherish your memories of the fun and foolish Lund family get togethers as I do on my only ride on a motorcycle hanging on to Tony

  9. The Lund Family

    Thank you for all the lovely words and memories being shared about our sister and family. We know she would have a smile on her face hearing all of this. Candy will be sadly missed. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

    Sorry to see that your sister Candy passed. I attended technical college with Candy at Western Technical College. We attended a few sporting events and concerts. Also, when Candy sold Mary Kay she had gone to an event down in Dallas, TX and she asked if I would like to go on a road trip to Dallas since my brother had lived in Dallas. I seen Candy a few months ago at the R.W. Houser Branch Family YMCA in Onalaska. It was nice to see her and talk to her.

    I met Candy back in the 80’s when we both worked at Gundersen Lutheran, then again when her brother Terry married my best friend Chris. My sympathy to her family and friends.
