Denair resident and Turlock High School alumna Kaylee Shipman is helping those stuck inside during the pandemic fill their homes with a little bit of warmth — and some sensational aromas — all while celebrating the memory of her late daughter. 

Shipman first started her business, MC Candles, in October 2019 and has since amassed thousands of followers on social media, providing homemade products to residents of not only her own town but Turlock, Modesto, Hughson, Chowchilla and even other states. She knows many people may not understand the name of her business, but that’s alright; it means something incredibly important to her.

“MC Candles is named after my daughter, Madalynn Corvello,” Shipman said.

Shipman’s daughter Madalynn was born in November 2017 but passed away shortly after her birth. She would have been almost two years old when Shipman first started her business, which coincidentally got its start during the same month as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
