Nancy A. Besaw
Nancy A. Besaw, 76, of Front Street, Keeseville, passed away peacefully on Friday, Oct. 11, 2019, with her loving family by her side.
She was born in Plattsburgh on June 7, 1943, the daughter of Harvey and Phyllis (St. John) LaMere.
Nancy enjoyed numerous activities; first and foremost, spending time with family and friends. She held compassion for people and her huge heart didn't allow her to turn a blind eye to anyone in need. Nancy was strong-minded, which gave her the will to stand up for her beliefs, especially when it came to protecting her children. She will always be loved and deeply missed by those close to her.
Nancy is survived by the love of her life, Roney Besaw, married for 57 years; four children, Tammy Rivers, Robin Hurton and spouse, Thomas (Tucker) Hurton, Ronnie Besaw, and Holly Evans and spouse, Ian Evans. Nancy was the grandmother to eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister and brother-in-law Dawna and Sonny Sheffield; a sister-in-law, Bonnie LaMere; and a brother-in-law, Bruce Crowningshield.
Honoring Nancy's wishes there will be no public calling hours or services.
Arrangements are in the care of the Hamilton Funeral Home, 124 Clinton Street, Keeseville, 834-7667. To offer an online condolence, share a symbolic gesture, or share a photo in memory of Nancy please visit
