Obituary

LaSonya “Candy” Belcher gained her wings on December 13, 2021, at age 48. LaSonya was born to Archie Nelson Jr. and Sonya Butler on September 2, 1973, in Wichita Falls, TX. As a child, LaSonya excelled in school, graduating in 1992 from Wichita Falls High School. During her high school years, she was inducted into the highly esteemed Debutante society and obtained her Cosmetology license before graduation. LaSonya met her husband Dwight Belcher in 2003 in Wichita Falls, TX. They married soon after in 2005 and merged their blended family of 4 children, Tamela Byrd, Kelly Byrd, Brittney Belcher, and Dominique Belcher.
In addition to being a dedicated military wife and loving mother, LaSonya found a passion for helping others in the healthcare industry. She practiced as a Certified Phlebotomist for over a decade and previously owned her own daycare center focusing on care for military families. Up until her recent passing she was a proud essential worker, practicing as a Lab Technician for a local plasma donation center. LaSonya had a passion for fashion, always dressed to impress with a cute bag, jewelry, and accessories. She eventually turned that passion into purpose by becoming a successful Paparazzi consultant. After accomplishing this goal, she went on to build her own e-commerce business, Chic-N-Pretty Boutique.
Throughout her entire life, she held an unwavering faith in God, which she shared with those who surrounded her.
