LOUISE PAULINE NUGENT
On Sunday, February 10, 2013, at the age of 88, with her children by her side, Louise Pauline Nugent passed away. Louise was the devoted wife of the late John E. Nugent Jr. and loving mother of Sharon (Steve) Songer, Kathryn (Lou) Prete, Carolyn (Mike) Cole, John Nugent, III, Mary Elizabeth Nugent, Patrick (Brenda) Nugent, Stephen (Diane) Nugent and Nancy Nugent; and grandmother of Steven, Scott, Sean, Louis, Sam, Tony, Anna-Marie, Sarah, Brian, Addison, Lillian, Boris, Oksana, Patrick, Sharon, Faith, Bailey, Stephen, Madison, Lyric, Tre and the late Jennifer-Louise, Benjamin, Carley and Ashley; great-grandmother of Katelyn, Emily, Taylor, Louie, Matthew, Sarah, Isabella, Elinor, Nora, Charlotte and Beatrice. Louise was known to all as a kind and gentle woman, deeply devoted to her family. She loved her home in McLean, and her sojourns to Colonial Beach. Her warmth and quiet modesty will never be forgotten. She was Mom to her eight kids, and five outlaws; Grandma to a host of grandkids and great grands, and just Louise to so many friends, whom she loved. We will miss her welcoming smile, her encouragement in any crisis, her firm "Yes" when we needed her aid. She lifted when we needed lifting, consoled when we needed consoling, and held when we needed holding, always with love, always with hope, always knowing that we were part of her, and she part of us. Friends may call at the Murphy Falls Church Funeral Home, 1102 W. Broad Street (Rt. 7) where the family will be present from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m., Monday, February 18, 2013. A Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. at St. John the Beloved Catholic Church, 6420 Linway Terrace, McLean, VA.
