Candice Murley, who was a viral star on TikTok, died last week at the age of 36, her family confirmed.
According to an obituary posted by Wiseman’s Funeral Homes, Murley died Jan. 2 at her home in Lewin’s Cove, which is located in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. A cause of death was not revealed.
“We have received some news no one wants to hear, tonight we lost a huge part of our family, my sister Candice. This was very unexpected, and our hearts are torn apart,” Murley’s sister, Marsha McEvoy, wrote on GoFundMe.
“This was very unexpected, and our hearts are torn apart,” she added.
McEvoy went on to commemorate her sister.
“Candice was so full of life and always lived life her own way. She was full of energy and loved to dance & listen to her music,” she said.
“We just know she is dancing in the sky now, we all know how much she believed in Heaven, she is certainly there,” Murley’s sister added.
As People magazine reported, Murley posted various clips — many featuring her cat — to two separate pages on TikTok, where she had a combined 45,000 followers.
“We hope she is happy and free at last away from all her struggles and be her happy and carefree self forever in eternity. Perhaps the stars are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy,” McEvoy said.
“She had a fan base like no other, she was entertainment at her best, with her dancing and her cooking, and let’s not forget her scatter singing with her mic,” she wrote.
“Let’s now look back at all her videos and keep them as our keepsakes to keep us smiling while we deal with this loss, she will be missed terribly by many,” McEvoy added.
According to Murley’s obituary, she is survived by her son.
Multiple outlets pointed out that in Murley’s final TikTok video posted to the platform, she said: “I hate it when the voices in my head go silent, because then I don’t know what those f****** are up to.”
