Elizabeth Candler “Candy” Isdale of Narragansett passed away peacefully at her home on July 3 after a fight against multiple myeloma. She was 70 years old.
Ms. Isdale was president of Custom Charter Yachts Ltd. and a licensed travel agent to offer all aspects of travel including charter yachts to her clients. She was a member and former president (2003-2007) of the American Yacht Charter Association (AYCA).
“Typical of her strong constitution and spirit, Candy insisted on attending our annual June meeting in Newport just a week before her passing,” said current President DJ Parker, owner of Neptune Group Yachting in Ft. Lauderdale.
