RENO, NV — Candace Theresa Knab passed into God's gentle hands on October 31, 2012, and is now flying with the angels in Heaven.

She was born in Niagara Falls, NY to parents Marion and Donald J. Knab on December 13, 1958. She had lived in Niagara Falls, NY, Phoenix, AZ, Los Angeles, CA, and Reno, NV.

Her final employer was the Federal Government where she worked in the 9th Circuit Federal Courts in Arizona, California and Nevada as Judicial Assistant for four different Federal Judges, and also as a Law Clerk and, most recently, as a Court Room Deputy in Reno, NV.
