Candis F Croker McGinn

February 4, 1949 ~ August 3, 2018 (age 69)

Candis F Croker McGinn, of Madison, WI, Eagle River, WI and Venice, FL, left this earth peacefully at home on August 3rd surrounded by her family.

Candis was born on February 4, 1949 at the Croker Homestead, to Robert Croker and Caroline Mattek Croker.  She was a graduate of Eagle River High School, class of 1967.  Candis went on to graduate from North Central Technical College.

She moved to Madison in 1969, and started her career in Legislative and Executive Branches of State Government.  She worked in the Capitol for over 25 years, especially enjoying her years with Governor Lee Dreyfus and Governor Scott McCallum.

Candis married James McGinn on October 17, 1981 in Baraboo, WI. The uttermost joy of her life was her two children, Alexander of Eagle River and Roxane of Chicago. They were her delight.

She was never happier than at home, Eagle River. She and her sister, Nancy still own the Family Homestead.  Her spirit and heart never left and never will.  May she be at peace at her beloved Homestead.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and survived by her brother, Bobby Croker of Eagle River, and 3 sisters, Connie (Marvin) Spafford of Eagle River, Anita (John) Lansing of Madison, and Nancy (Bill) Countney of Greenville.

Candy will be missed dearly but never forgotten. Her spirit is carried on by her husband and two children.
