Candy earned a Bachelor's Degree in Home Economics and Marketing from the University of Tennessee Knoxville. After working a few years as a buyer for Castner Knott, she began to pursue art. Her watercolor paintings mostly consist of animals and flowers and tend to be of a tropical flavor. She, also, spent years traveling the south and eastern coast as a craft show vendor, the last seven of which her dear friend, Ish Nash was her faithful helper.

She was preceded in death by her father W.T. Wilson in 2015. And, last but not least, her memory will be treasured by her many friends for she never met a stranger.
