Celebrating a Life Lived to the Fullest: Nancy S. Chandler, 1938-2015
Wonderful mother, artist and mapmaker, Nancy Chandler passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on June 21, 2015, in Marin County, California.
Words she lived by (as quoted from the clippings on her cluttered refrigerator door): 'Colour outside the lines.' 'A clean house is a sign of a misspent life.' And 'Children have a much better chance of growing up if their parents have done so first. (You ain't got a chance, kids. Love, Mom)'.
Daughters Nima and Siri are in Mill Valley now with Kim, a highly accomplished Downs Syndrome athlete and artist who lived with her mother in the US. With the support of family and close friends, we are all coming to terms with her sudden passing.
Memorials will be held in Mill Valley and Bangkok later this year. In the meantime, please wear your brightest colors (no black please) and feel free to contribute to the our In Memoriam page for friends, family and fans around the world with special memories and photos celebrating her life and the lives of all those she touched during her time with us.
