BUTNER- Ms. Candee Ann Jump Peppitoni, 72, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, after battling cancer.
Ms. Peppitoni was born on July 16, 1948 to the late Robert and Dixie Jump in San Diego, California. While our hearts break and we are filled with sadness with the loss of our loving mom, sister, family member and friend, we also rejoice and celebrate with her knowing she’s in a better place. Candee attended Covenant Life Church in Butner, NC, where weeks before sickness would take over her body, she received the ultimate gift of salvation and was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. We find comfort and peace knowing that in an instant, she closed her eyes here, all of her pain was gone, and she awoke with her loving and merciful Savior.
Ms. Peppitoni is survived by her son, Anthony “Tony” Peppitoni of Durham, NC; daughter, Andrea P. Edwards (Steve) of Butner, NC; brothers, Randy Jump and Bob Jump (Vicki) both of California; sister, Dixie J. Neal (Skip) of Oklahoma; grandchildren, Kalee, Delaney, and Jaxon Edwards all of Creedmoor, NC; and great-grandchild, Brantley Brown.
