San­dra “Sandy” Jean Lampp Daniel, 68, of Engle­wood, passed away in the arms of her daugh­ter on Thurs­day, Jan. 15, 2015, at Tidewell Hos­pice in Englewood.

Born on Aug. 17, 1946, in Colum­bus, Ohio, to the late Jesse “Buster” and Ethel Mae (Beans) Lampp, she had been a life­long res­i­dent of Florida since mov­ing to Engle­wood when she was 6 months old.

Sandy loved the his­tory of her fam­ily in Engle­wood and liv­ing on the Lampp home­stead, part of “Olde Engle­wood” that has been named a his­tor­i­cal land­site. She enjoyed work­ing to improve her home and the sur­round­ing land­scape – her most enjoy­able pastime.

A die-hard lover and pro­tec­tor of ani­mals, she was a long-time con­trib­u­tor to the Humane Soci­ety. She res­cued many cats over her life­time and gave them a for­ever home.

Sandy had a robust career work­ing with her father-in-law in real estate for many years.  She loved to cook, a trait she devel­oped from her father, Buster.   One of her great­est mem­o­ries was trav­el­ing through­out Hawaii and Mex­ico with Shelly.

A strong-willed woman, many who knew her will remem­ber her tena­cious spirit.

She is pre-deceased by her hus­band of 41 years, Robert “Bob” Keith Daniel in 2013.

Sur­vivors include her only daugh­ter, Shelly L. Babing­ton, and one grand­son, Jakoby Babington.

Engle­wood Com­mu­nity Funeral Home with Pri­vate Cre­ma­tory has been selected to han­dle arrange­ments.  You may share a mem­ory with the fam­ily at www.engelwoodfh.com
