August 1, 2014

LONG LAKE -- Sandra M. “Sam” Bateman, 68, of Newcomb Road, Long Lake, passed away Friday, August 1, 2014 at her home.
Born on October 26, 1945 at the Naval Hospital in Patuxent, Maryland, she was the daughter of LCDR
Peter R. Moureau and Dorothy (Craver) Moureau. She attended Florida State University where she majored in Math.
On October 7, 1967 she married Ensign James H. Bateman at the Naval Air Station, Brunswick, Georgia.
During their twenty-five years of active service together, Sam was the consummate Navy wife, active in every aspect of service, both afloat and ashore. Her love of the hospitality industry later led to becoming the manager of the Navy Officers Club, Dam Neck, Virginia in the late 1980s.
Her obvious love of gardening was apparent to anyone passing by her Long Lake home. Sam was an avid crafter and a member of the Northern Needles Quilters group. She was an active supporter of Long Lake American Legion Post 650 and its community projects. In response to a perceived need, she assumed responsibility for creating and maintaining the Long Lake Medical Center’s flowerbeds and decorations.
Survivors include her loving husband of over 46 years, CDR James Bateman, USN (Ret); one son, Christopher “C.J” Bateman and grandson Cody James Bateman of Mount Pleasant, S.C.; and a sister, Brenda Neilon of St. Augustine, Fla.
Graveside services will be conducted 11 a.m. Saturday, August 9, 2014 at the Long Lake Cemetery. A reception will follow from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the Adirondack Hotel in Long Lake.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Sam’s memory may be directed to the Long Lake Rescue Squad, PO Box 415, Long Lake NY 12847.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Miller Funeral Home, 6357 Rte. 30, Indian Lake. To express online condolences, please visit
