Candice Leann Witherel was born in Carmichael, California on January 31st, 1984 to Lorna and David Witherel. At the age of six weeks the family moved to Bitburg Air Base Germany. She was so tiny she spent most of the flight in a cardboard bassinet against the bulkhead. And so she started life as a G.I. Kid and travelled Europe for the first 5 years of her life. Returning to Sacramento California with her family in July 1988, she became a friend to everyone, knew everybody and was always busy. She and the family spent a lot of time in Southern California camping near the beach with her Grandparents, which she dearly loved to do. In July,1992 The family moved to Rapid City, South Dakota, where she had many close friends and became fascinated with thunder storms, lightning and tornados. She would sit on the rear deck of her house and stare at the storms for hours, until she was made to come in. She and her sisters "Loved" walking to the corner during snow storms in near "Whiteout Conditions" with windchill factors in the 30 to 40 below zero range. That fun couldn't last forever when her dad retired from the USAF in July 1995 when the family came to Boise, Idaho Where she finished school, loved track and field sports at Meridian High School. She became a Dental Assistant and found her passion as a furniture restorer, which gave her a great deal of pleasure.
