Pamela Chapman, of Sarasota, and formerly of London and Longboat Key, died May 1.
Mrs. Chapman was born and raised in Finchley, Greater London, U.K. She worked in the city of London, until her marriage in 1954. She then left London and went to work for the United Kingdom Civil Service until the birth of her daughter.
She then moved with her husband to Geneva and worked as a financial controller for the World Council of Churches refugee-assistance program until her retirement. In 1993, she accompanied her husband to Dallas.
In Dallas, Mrs. Chapman was an active member of the project, Wives Support Group, and appeared on television to protest to President Clinton the early termination of the project in which her husband was engaged.
After a visit to Sarasota, she decided to reside here permanently, first on Longboat Key, then in Palmer Ranch.
While a resident of Longboat Key, Mrs. Chapman was an active member of Sarasota Yacht Club’s women’s group and entertainment committee. She remained a member until her death.
She is survived by her husband, Gerald; daughter, Claire; and three grandchildren.
