Sandra (Sandy) Marie Chapman Hungerford lost her courageous 8 year battle against metastatic
fallopian tube cancer and Type 1 diabetes on February 8, 2021 at the age of 79 years with her
family at her side.
Sandy was born on June 22, 1941 to Carl and Frances Crowder Chapman and lived her entire life
in Orlando and Winter Park attending and graduating from Concord Park Elementary, Memorial
Junior High, and Edgewater High School in the Class of 1959. During her scholastic years she
was a very popular and active member of Memorial Junior High activities and the Edgewater
Cheer Leaders as well as National Junior and Senior High School Honor Societies.
Following the completion of her freshman year at Florida State University, Sandy married her Edgewater High
School classmate Bill Howington in 1960. During her 24 year marriage Sandy worked at the
Winter Park Telephone before the birth of her daughter, Linda, in 1964. Linda's heart health
issues during her early years necessitated Sandy leaving her employment. However, with a
healthy Linda in school, Sandy attended Seminole Junior College graduating in 1971 with an
Associate Arts Degree graduating Summa Cum Laude and became a member of the Maitland
Field Club, playing tennis and making dear and lasting friendships to this day. In 1980 with Linda
attending High School, Sandy enrolled in the University of Central Florida graduating Summa
Cum Laude in 1982 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and as a member of the UCF's First English
Honor Society, Phi Kappa Phi, coinciding with Linda's graduation from Lake Howell High School.
Following the end of her marriage in August 1983, Sandy met a retired Army Officer then
working at Martin Marietta via the wife (Charlene) of a well-known Winter Park Physician, the
late Dr. William Braun. Sandy's beautiful smile, intelligence and engaging personality won
Colonel Franklin Hungerford's heart followed by their marriage in December 1984. A beautiful
36-year marriage followed with a blending of Sandy's and Frank's families. Frank was a member
of Rio Pinar Country Club, so Sandy quickly took up the game of golf and with a great golf
teacher and her fellow Edgewater High School graduate and Dubsdread Golf Pro Harold Rayborn
teaching her. Sandy developed her golf talents in addition to her tennis ability with the Rio Pinar
Ladies Association, as well as playing in the Rio's Showtime productions of “Chorus Line” and
“Best Little Whore House in Texas” with the MC being the late Judge Jim Byrd, and performing as
a model in Rio's Ladies annual Style Shows during Member Guest weeks.
Sandy attended Maitland Presbyterian Church during her first marriage, and was a member of
Parkway Baptist Church during her second marriage. At Parkway, she served the Lord and the
membership as a Greeter with her beautiful smile and charming southern voice and personality.
Sandy joined her husband after his retirement in extensive traveling with his knowledge of
Europe and World War II visiting Germany (where he served during his military career), England,
France, Italy, the Benelux countries, the Baltic and Mediterranean Sea countries, the continental
US states, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, as well as many Mediterranean Sea cruises with family and
