Sarah Elizabeth Pugh passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, at the age of 33, surrounded by her parents, David and Connie, and several close friends. Sarah was born on December 25, 1979. She grew up in Marin County, CA and attended Redwood High School and College of Marin. Her childhood summers involved an annual trek with her dad up to Washington State to take part in her grandfather’s Wenatchee Youth Circus, where she performed as a clown, an acrobat, and a mistress of ceremonies over the years. As a young adult, she fell in love with cooking, deep and loyal friendships, music and true celebrations of living. She believed in “living the dream”. She spent several years living in the Reno area, where she managed and catered in two restaurants. She was a victim of breast cancer for the past seven years, and in that journey, she became more beautiful, courageous and inspirational to every life she touched. There is a “Save Sarah” site on Facebook created by friends to share love, prayers, and hope. Her spirit and unbelievable smile have brought greater awareness to the capability of fighting through the clouds and devastation of cancer. She will be forever loved and the heavens are a brighter place with her light.
Sarah is survived by her parents, David and Connie Pugh of Novato, CA; her mother, Mary Holloway of San Rafael, CA; brother, Taro Hart of Los Angeles, CA; grandparents, Paul and Karen Pugh of Wenatchee, WA; and the families of her aunt, Margie Heckelman of San Rafael, CA; and her uncle, Jonathan Pugh of Kenmore, WA.
