Candice Thompson was taken away too soon on Sunday, September 24th, 2023. Beloved daughter of Sharon Thompson and Marty Cannon. Candice, aka Kochie, was born in Manhattan, Harlem, New York, on March 19th, 1977. She grew up in the Bronx. Candice attended P.S. 53, I.S. 22, and Taft High School in the Bronx, New York. She later relocated to Staten Island and then moved to Sicklerville, New Jersey. Kochie worked at Ac Moore Warehouse, Target, Amazon, and a church, where she touched many hearts!

More than anything else in this world, she cherished her family and friends, but most importantly, her nieces and nephews. Candice loved to dance and sing but couldn’t do either. Those who loved Kochie knew her as a loving and nurturing person whose heart was always open to family and friends. Candice knew the true meaning of love.

Kochie was a gift from God to the world; she will always be remembered as a ball of fire, yet she had a heart so big that I’ve seen her take her shoes off her own feet to give to someone she said needed them more than she did. I thank Sharon Thompson and Marty Cannon for giving us her, but mostly I thank God for touching her in the womb of an amazing woman. The phrase Concrete Rose is the best way to describe Candice; she can blossom into that gift God gave us. Her smile was so big; her eyes were like stars in the sky; they just brighten you up, along with the most amazing heart. Now mark March 19th on your calendar; this should be our holiday gift to remember. Thank you, Sharon    and Marty, once again for giving us the opportunity to meet such a down-to-earth person, but the real thanks go to Father God for molding her in the womb she came from.

She leaves to cherish her loving memory: her mother, Sharon Thompson, her father, Marty Cannon, two sisters, Tiffany Thompson and Christina Thompson, and a brother, Tyquan Wilson. Also left to cherish her memory are her grandparents, Brenda Thompson and Foster Thompson, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Meeting her in heaven: her be-loving brother Marty Jr., cousins Cody and Donell Thompson, and dear friend Levi.

Words from Kochie’s loving sister, Christina Thompson: My sister was the best that anyone could ask for. I wouldn’t have traded her for anything in this world. I’m going to forever miss her doing the littlest things for me. Kochie was the most genuine and giving person to ever walk this earth. She was annoying, but I guess that comes with being a big sister. My everlasting love for my sister will never go unforgotten.

         Candice will be greatly missed. We love you!
