Born on April 2, 1919, Mrs. Chandler passed away on March 8, 2014, just three weeks before her 95th birthday. She came to Florida College to fulfill the need of a dorm mother in 1967, three years after the passing of her husband. She served in that capacity for 15 years, positively influencing countless young lives. 

Mrs. Chandler is the mother of College alumni Royce and Hope Chandler, the grandmother of Todd and Jeannie Chandler, Luke and Melanie Chandler, and David and Laura (Chandler) Lopez. She is survived by over 50 great grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. 

In lieu of flowers, the Chandler family requests gifts be made to the College’s James R. Cope Adopt Program.

The memorial service for Mrs. Chandler will be held this evening, March 18 at 7 p.m. at the North Terrace church building.
