TURNER – Beverlee A. Chasse, 45, a resident of Turner, died suddenly Wednesday morning on May 27 at her home after a long and courageous battle with diabetes.

She was born Sept. 23, 1963, in Waterbury, Conn., a daughter of Frank Pastore of Wolcott, Conn. and Helen (Gilbert) Pastore of Waterbury, Conn. She attended the schools of Waterbury, Conn. and then furthered her education at the St. Frances School of Nursing in Hartford, Conn.

In 1991, she moved to Maine where she met her husband, Mike Chasse, of Lewiston and on Jan. 14, 1995, they married and made their home in Turner.

Having lived with diabetes for 35 years, she enjoyed being a camper, counselor and a registered nurse for the Clara Barton Camp for Girls with Diabetes. She also volunteered regularly at the Turner Elementary School. She was an avid fan of the New England Patriots and the New York Giants.

Her greatest joy in life was her 13-year-old daughter, Michalee, and the time they spent together. She was also a huge Garth Brooks fan, and had the opportunity, along with her sister, to meet him in 1996.

Pastore of Waterbury, Conn.; her father, Frank Pastore of Wolcott, Conn.; her husband, Mike Chasse of Turner; a daughter, Michalee Chasse of Turner; two sisters, Cindy Cady and her husband, Douglas, of Ogunquit and Darlene M’Sadoques and her husband, David, of Waterbury, Conn.; a brother, Frank Pastore and his wife, Karen, of Wolcott, Conn.; nephews, Nick, Kristopher and Michael Pastore of Wolcott, Conn. and Brad Simon of Fort Edwards, N.Y.; a great-nephew, Parker Simon of Fort Edwards, N.Y.; nieces Amanda LaVoie of Turner, Melissa M’Sadoques of Waterbury, Conn. and Melinda Simon of Nashville, Tenn.
