Equilla M. Chandler, age 72, died peacefully in her sleep on April 17, 2017, at her residence in Oceanside, California. Equilla is survived by daughters Kathy Lynn Chesney of Oceanside California and Robbie Renea Matheson of Euless, Texas; brother William Thomas Neel and wife Patsy Lea of Lakeside, Texas; Grandchildren Kristopher Ryan Chesney and wife Caroline Anne of San Diego, California; Britnee Renea Chesney of San Diego, California; Kyle David Lamers of Wheaton, Maryland; and Amber Lynn Lamers of Natchitoches, Louisiana. Equilla is preceded in death by parents Isaac Brown Neel of Jacksboro, Texas and Edith Frances Dempsey of Cleburne, Texas; and husband Robert Loyd Chandler of Fort Worth, Texas. Equilla was born on August 5, 1944 in Cleburne, Texas, to parents Isaac Brown Neel and Edith Frances Neel. She graduated from Green B. Trimble Technical High School 1962 in Fort Worth, Texas. She ended her long professional career at DISH Network in North Richland Hills, Texas. Equilla was a great mom and a loving wife. She was married to Robert Loyd Chandler of Fort Worth, Texas on November 4, 1988. Equilla enjoyed the outdoors and working in the yard; cultivating numerous varieties of flowers and plants. Her last few years she enjoyed watching the hummingbirds and the diverse array of birds that enjoyed the multiple bird feeders.
Equilla will always be remembered and deeply missed by family and friends. A private, small get-together will be held next week to celebrate Equilla's life. Kathy and Robbie would especially like to thank Advantage Hospice. The exceptional care provided by Liza and Arnie for our mother will never be forgotten.
