Morene Ella Reach Pugh of Waynesboro, born on June 10, 1924, in Dunbar, Virginia, departed this world for one greater on Friday, September 23, 2011, at the age of 87.

She was lovingly raised by the late Lanis Burke Reach Alexa and Robert Joseph Alexa, and resided the majority of her life in the counties of Nelson and Augusta.

"Nanny", as she was affectionately known by family, as well as close friends and extended family, was preceded in her passing by the father of her children, Keane Denson Pugh Sr.; her eldest son, Keane Denson Pugh Jr.; her sister, Mary R. Cooke; her son-in-law, Blaine Douglas Parr; and a grandson, Stacy Lee Pugh.

She leaves to cherish many memories her sister, Eleanor R. Atkins; her three remaining children and their spouses, Robert "Bobby" Carroll Pugh and his wife, Pat, Donna Rueth Pugh Wheeler and her husband, Walter Earley Wheeler Jr., and Anita "Lynn" Pugh Parr Moon and her husband, James Lewis Moon Jr.

Her humor, loving nature and practical advice will be missed by her grandchildren, "Bobby's" children, Donna Lynn Pugh Reynolds and Joseph Robert Pugh; Donna's children, Kimberly Renee Wheeler McClamroch and her husband, Scott; Karen Denay Wheeler Rowlingson and her husband, John; Walter Kent Wheeler; and, Kevin Earley Wheeler; and Lynn's children, John Franklin Parr and his wife, Sarah, and Amy Deann Moon. "Nanny's" treats and 'bushel and a peck' hugs and kisses will not be forgotten by her great-grandchildren, Ryan, Bryce, Mick, Isaac, Tyler, Tanner, Natalie, Chelsea, Joey, Stephanie, Heather, Tiffany and Brieanna; and great-great-grandchild "R.J.".

Morene's family would like to thank the friends, extended family, doctors, nurses and caregivers, too numerous to mention, for their talents, care and support throughout her life, and especially during her last days with us. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory would graciously be accepted by the Augusta Health Hospice of the Shenandoah, P.O. Box 215, Fishersville, Virginia, 22939. A private family service was held on Monday, September 26, 2011, at which she was laid to eternal rest next to her sister at Augusta Memorial Park.

Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Reynolds Hamrick Funeral Homes.
