Annie Laurie Newsom Bugg
PITTSBORO — Annie Laurie Newsom Bugg, 97, passed away at her farm in Pittsboro, NC, on April 4, 2013. Daughter of the late Marion Eugene and Annie Laurie Long Newsom, she was born in Durham and was a long-time resident until she moved to the farm in Pittsboro in 1984. She graduated from Durham High School in 1932, where she served as Student Council President and Editor-in-Chief of the school newspaper. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Duke University in 1936, and during her four years at Duke, she served as Class President for two years, President of the Women’s Student Government, and Co-Editor of the Duke Chronicle. At Duke, she was also a member of both the Order of the White Duchy and the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International.
Upon graduation from Duke, Annie Laurie married Dr. Everett Irving Bugg, Jr. They lived in Baltimore while he completed his medical training, and then moved to Ft. Bragg and later Thomasville, GA, where Dr. Bugg served in the army hospital during WWII. She raised five children, and over her protestations, was named Durham Mother of the Year in 1955.
Annie Laurie actively participated in many civic activities in her community. She was the President of the PTA of Morehead School and the PTA of Carr Junior High School, President of the Durham Better Health Foundation, a member of the Durham School Board, Chair of the Durham United Fund Campaign, a member of the Board of Directors of both the Durham Child Guidance Center and the Council of Girl Scouts, Chair of the Durham United Nations Week Observance, and a Trustee of NC Central University – just to name a few. She dedicated her time and expertise to helping others and to building a strong community.
In her later years, Annie Laurie loved and was devoted to her Labrador retrievers. She bred, raised, trained and field-trialed her many dogs, and was active for many years in the Licensed Retriever Field Trials. Her passion for field trials prompted her move to the farm in Pittsboro. Even this year, she continued to reminisce about the field trial accomplishments of each and every dog.
Annie Laurie, affectionately known as Mun, was an accomplished woman who served as an extraordinary role model for everyone who had the good fortune to know her. Her many stories, practical perspective on life, and her positive and dogged outlook shaped many a family member and friend.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Everett Irving Bugg Jr.; and her son, Everett Irving Bugg III. Her life will be forever celebrated by her sons, Charles Edward Bugg (Bebe) of Birmingham, AL, and John Eugene Bugg (Sally) of Durham; her daughters, Annie Laurie Bugg Compton of Raleigh and Betsy Bugg Malone (Gayle) of Nashville, TN; her daughter-in-law, Mary Clyde Wade Bugg of Durham; her 12 grandchildren, her 16 great-grandchildren, and her many nieces and nephews.
The family extends their profound gratitude to their mother’s dearest friend and dedicated caretaker, Pauline Dunn.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 13, at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, followed by a visitation with family and a reception at 12:00 at Hope Valley Country Club.
