In addition to her loving husband of 51 years, she is survived by her two children, David Chandler and wife LeighAnn of Salisbury, MD, and Diane Chandler Farlow and husband David of Exmore, VA; brother, Michael Key and wife Dorothy of Rutherfordton, NC; three grandchildren, Andrew and Emma Chandler, and Grace Farlow; and several nieces and nephews.  Other than her parents, she was predeceased by two brothers, Claude Ralph Key and Neal Key.  

Funeral services will be conducted from the graveside at the Fairview Lawn Cemetery on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 2:00 p.m., with The Reverends David Boothe and Robert Smoot officiating.  Following the service, the family will receive friends at Broadway Baptist Church for a reception.
