Ms. Patricia Ann “Pat” O’Neal Pugh, 76 of Pearson, passed away Sunday, October 3, 2021, at Coffee Regional Medical Center.
Born in Atlanta, GA on February 10, 1945, she had lived in Blackshear for many years before moving to Pearson almost a year ago. Ms. Pugh was a homemaker but was also a former owner/operator of her own daycare business, The Playroom, that she ran out of her home. She loved to read, had tried to be crafty, and over the years had enjoyed spending time at her family’s lake house. Affectionately known as “Floss” by all of her family, she was also the most awesome Meme. She loved to throw the best parties with fun themes and so looked forward to her yearly trips to Panama City Beach. Ms. Pugh had a soft spot for oatmeal cream pies, Coca Colas, and her pet dogs. She was a member of Turning Point Worship Center in Jesup. Ms. Pugh was dearly loved and will be forever missed.
She was a daughter of the late James Luther & Lucille Emma Townsend O’Neal.
