Barbara Chandler

December 31, 1969 — February 21, 2023

Barbara Gorman Chandler, 86, of Warsaw, Virginia passed away on February 21, 2023. She was born on October 28, 1936.

Barbara was preceded in death by her late husband, Sam Chandler and two daughters, Debra Botkin, and Katherine Chandler.

Throughout her many happy years she lived, she accomplished many admirable things such as fostering many children in need and opening a group home for the deaf and blind. She also spent time lobbying for the deaf and blind community by attending many workshops and offering her interpreter services to Middlesex County public schools. Barbara made her mark on every life she touched with her memorable smile and her famous “I love you” sign. She was also the champion of rummy. She welcomed everyone into her home and treated them as family and never had a bad word to say about anyone. Barbara will forever be in our hearts and be loved and missed dearly! The family wishes to thank the people who cared for her including Tiffany, Sharon, and many others.
