Loving mother of Anthony ‘Tony’, Brian Goglia (Carole Brind-Amour), Dina (Kevin Carter) and Deborah Goglia-Kocis (John).

Puggy had worked at Dominion Glass and retired from Nestle’s. She was a faithful member of the Catholic Women’s League. Puggy was also the Aunt to many many nieces & nephews.

She opened her heart and home on Blake Street to all. On a daily basis you would find a pot of coffee on, a Coors Lt in the fridge, homemade baked goods, ashtray on the table, bed to sleep in and an ear or shoulder when needed. Her home was where the Freeburn family and friends would solve the world’s problems and if anyone was missing you knew you could find them at Aunt Puggy’s.
