Candacé Ann Parker Vaughan was born on November 6, 1949 in Coronado, California. Her family moved to Millington, Tennessee in 1961 where she attended Lausanne School for Girls. She attended Rhodes College and Memphis State University, majoring in Commercial Art, and graduated Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Accounting. She was a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. Candie worked for Fleet Trucking in Nashville and Brentwood for many years, also working for the State of Tennessee, from which she retired in 2011.

In 2002 Candie married Harry H. Vaughan III of Mt. Juliet TN, the "heart of my heart, love for all time". In 2008 they moved from Hermitage TN to Gallatin where she used her artistic skills to design and decorate their dream home. They recently celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary. Harry and Candie enjoyed traveling in their retirement years, including cruises to Hawaii and the Caribbean. Candie had a passion for genealogy, dancing (Tap, Jazz & Ballet), cats (usually Siamese), flamingos, scrap-booking, painting and her grandchildren.

In addition to her husband Harry, Candie is survived by her son: Sean Wilson, his children Destanie, Kiersten, Chase and Zachary and her great-grandson Emmett Jones; Harry's children: Amie Vaughan PhD., Jennifer Balazadeh (husband Saum), and their children Machias and Semiah. She is also survived by her siblings, Peter Parker, Dr. Pattie Parker Dingeldein, DDS (husband David) and their children Christian, Sally and Parker; and Michael (wife Linda); a niece Reid Massie Hafer (husband Josh) and their children Carter, George and Jack.

Candie was preceded in death by her parents Dr. John A. Parker, Capt. USN and June Brown Parker; mother and father-in-law Harry H Vaughan Jr., Col. USAF and Jean Davis Vaughan; her sister Sally Massie Bivins; sister-in-law Sandra J. Vaughan and granddaughter Tenby Balazadeh.
