Candice’s sister, Marsha McEvoy, organized a GoFundMe for the star’s funeral costs, and said in the post that the family’s “hearts are torn apart.”

“Candice was so full of life and always lived life her own way,” Marsha wrote.
“She had a fan base like no other, she was entertainment at her best, with her dancing and her cooking, and let’s not forget her scatter singing with her mic.”
The family will designate all extra funds generated by the GoFundMe to the care of Candice’s son, Maxwell.
Her cause of death has not been made public.
Only hours before the tragic news of her death broke, Candice posted several videos to her TikTok accounts.
One clip features Candice cooking dinner, and in another, she pulls food out of the fridge, saying Santa brought soup for Candice and sausages for her husband Dave.

Dave appears in a video that uses a “New Year’s Resolution” filter, and Dave is assigned the randomly-generated resolution to “stop drinking alcohol” in 2022.
Two videos show her beloved cat, Stash, sleeping soundly on a bed.
In another, an audio clip of an AI voice asks, “How old will you be when it’s your birthday?” as Candice draws the number 37 onscreen.
And days before her death, Candice posted an eerie video to her other account.
In the video, Candice lip-syncs to pre-recorded audio.
“I hate it when the voices in my head go silent, because then I don’t know what those f***ers are up to,” Candice mouths in the clip.
On one account, Candice had 16,000 followers; on the other, 26,000.
“Candice’s passing came as a massive shock to our family and we are not financially prepared for it,” Candice’s sister Marsha wrote on the family GoFundMe.
“We ask that you please donate what you can to help give Candice the funeral she deserves and to assist our family in coping with this tragic loss. We thank everyone in advance.”
The GoFundMe already surpassed its $15,000 goal, clocking in at just under $16,400 on Wednesday morning.
