Tamar (Danyow) Begley, 64, of Weybridge


WEYBRIDGE — Tamar (Danyow) Begley passed away peacefully at age 64 on March 13, 2024, surrounded by family and friends. A lifelong Vermonter, Tamar was born on July 24, 1959, grew up in Vergennes, and lived in New Haven before settling on a horse farm in Weybridge.

Tamar loved animals and was an equestrian who cherished horses from the age of two. She competed in Dressage and was a trusted mentor to new riders. A woman of strong Christian faith, Tamar was a member of Victory Baptist Church who fostered lifelong friendships with classmates, the equestrian community, her church congregation, and her coworkers. She worked at Simmonds Precision for 33 years before working in online language learning until she retired.

In addition to spending time with family and friends in the barn caring for her horses, alpacas, and goats, she enjoyed collecting antiques, gardening, and birdwatching on the porch of her farmhouse with her beloved husband and their adored Corgis.

Tamar is survived by her best friend and husband, Mark Begley, and was predeceased by her mother, Eleanor (LaFlam) Danyow, her father, Robert Danyow, and her brother, Tim Danyow. She is also survived by stepdaughters Julie (John) Wyckoff, and Michele (John) Ruppert; step grandchildren Grace, Charlie, Michael, Sarah and Jax; over 150 first and second cousins; and countless treasured friends and neighbors whom she loved dearly.

To celebrate Tamar’s positivity and love of life, a memorial service followed by a gathering in the church hall will be held at 10:30 a.m. on June 8 at Victory Baptist Church in Vergennes.◊
