Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Patti by adding your memories and photos.

Patricia Haggerty Pugh entered peacefully into rest on Friday, August 21, 2020. Her joy was found in spending time with her loving and devoted husband, Len, children and grandchildren, all who will miss her deeply.

Patti Pugh was born April 26, 1970 in Columbia, SC to Norman Kent Haggerty and Sherry Wilson Haggerty. She lived in Newark, DE since 1986, and resided in North East, MD since 2005. Her younger years were spent in Hickory, NC, Anderson, SC and Aiken, SC. Patti attended South Aiken High School and was active in dance, basketball, horseback riding and scouting. Her family moved to Newark, DE in 1986, and Patti attended Thomas McKean High School in Wilmington, DE. She was active in high school plays and chorus, and was a member of the high school band specializing in percussion instruments and flag twirling as part of the band color guard. Patti later expanded her musical skills to guitar.

Patti graduated from University of Delaware in 1992 with her bachelor's degree in Computer and Information Sciences. While attending college, she worked during her summer breaks at the DuPont Corporate Data Center. Patti's successful career included corporate management of cybersecurity for CSC including network architecture engineering, and firewall security. While employed with CSC, Patti was manager of the North American Firewall Team. She recently was hired by JP Morgan Bank as Vice President of Cybersecurity. She was active in her community, and enjoyed supporting her children, Kaelan and Shannon, in their endeavors, which led Patti to serve as president of the Newark High School Volleyball Booster Club in 2018 & 2019. A few of Patti's many fascinating hobbies were bee keeping, stained-glass forming, gardening, canning, cooking, and running. Patti completed several half-marathons, a full marathon and the Shamrock Whale Challenge in 2019. Patti was an accomplished student of martial arts, and earned a third-degree black belt in Kenpo Karate. She enjoyed the family animals, including eight chickens, two cats and seven rescue dogs.

The Pugh family are members of North East United Methodist Church in North East, MD.

In addition to her parents, Kent and Sherry Haggerty, Patti is survived by her husband, Len Pugh III and children: Kaelan and Shannon Eberle, Cassie Cannon (Billy), Len Pugh IV (Samantha); and Brittany Pugh. She is also survived by her sisters, Susan Wallick (Dan), Katherine Mason (Jake), Jennifer Haggerty (Corynn), brother-in-law Richard (Anita), uncles Ray, Pat (Leah), and Kit (Carol), aunt Kelly (James), cousin Erin, nieces Georgia and Ava, nephews Jacob, Zachary, Samuel and Joshua, and grandchildren Zoey, Lenny V, Dean, Jack and Violet.

A viewing will be held Friday, August 28, 2020 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at R.T. Foard Funeral Home, P.A., 111 S. Queen Street, Rising Sun, MD 21911.

Condolence & Memory Journal

Patti was our queen bee! She was part of a 50 member beekeeping group at our workplace and took an active (and I mean active) role in helping us move the club forward and keeping our hives going. I was always eager to know what I'd learn next from her. Patti had a ton of knowledge and was always there to help and answer questions and in such a low key manner. Thank you Patti for all that you did for us (and the bees). We'll all miss you dearly and think of you often.

I had the privilege of working with Patti at CSC for many years. She was extremely gifted and able to get things done in a very complicated environment. Condolences to Len and the family. May her memory be a blessing.

An outstanding lady, I genuinely enjoyed all of my time working with Patti at CSC. She was both technically gifted and a fun person to be around. We missed you when you left us but never imagined it would be the last time we would speak. Rest in peace Patti.

I last saw Patti at our Christmas party. She was kind to everyone and actively participated in the activities. Patti demonstrated Hula dancing at our Hawaiin themed party. She was so beautiful and graceful. Many of the children were drawn to her and she lovingly tutored each one. Her outward grace truly reflected all the grace she imbued. She was always about caring for others. You her precious family will be in my prayers.

I worked with Patti at CSC/DXC. She was my manager for many years. Her positive attitude was uplifting to the whole team no matter what we were going through. She was always encouraging people to do their best. We ran a 5K Color Run together and I still have pictures of us all covered in pink, yellow and blue dust. She was encouraging everyone on the run - high fives and smiles! Heaven recently got an angel. She will be missed.

I first met Patti about 19 years ago, in 2001. We were cubical neighbors in the Mill, working for CSC. Through the years, have always admired her for the level of caring, calming tone of her voice and her high level of professional attitude. I can recall whenever I was engaged with her in some work endeavor, I always had a sense of calmness and confidence that she was going to be key in whatever success we would have collectively. She was truly a leader and someone that I very much admired. She is a beautiful soul and will be missed by all. My love goes out to Len and the family.

I am a better person because of Patti. She taught me so much while working with her at CSC. Patti was a one-of-a-kind. The world has lost a gentle, yet impressive woman - and Heaven has gained a bright and beautiful soul. Rest in peace Patti - til we meet again.
