Chichester Frost, Candee.jpg

Candee J. Frost


CHICHESTER- Mrs. Candee J. Frost, 47, of Chichester, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on April 23, 2017 after a brief battle with cancer.


Born in Rochester, Candee was the daughter of Brenda (Rainaud) Smith of Barnstead and the late Joseph Smith.  She was raised and educated in Amherst and later moved to Barnstead before finally settling in Chichester where she resided for the past 31 years with her loving husband.


Prior to her illness, Candee had been employed as an office worker for Globe Manufacturing in Pittsfield, a position she held for over 28 years.


She enjoyed camping and fishing, but above all, cherished the time spent with her children and grandchildren.


In addition to her father, Candee was predeceased by her sister, Justine Trainer.


She is survived by her husband of nearly 26 years, Richard S. Frost; two children, Richard S. Frost, Jr. and Brittany L. Frost; one sister, Joy Couch of Epsom; and her three grandchildren, Carlee, Jenna and Eric Hilliard.


Her Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, May 6th  at 1 P.M. in the Still Oaks Funeral & Memorial Home 1217 Suncook Valley Highway in Epsom.  Calling Hours and Memorial Reception will follow until 4 P.M.


Candee’s family are advocates for the early detection of cancer and hope that a cure can be found.  Therefore, in lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy in Candee’s memory may be sent to the Lustgarten Foundation, 1111 Stewart Avenue, Bethpage, NY 11714 to find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
