Obituary for Brenda M. McCabe Haggart

Brenda M. McCabe Haggart, 66, passed away peacefully Friday morning with family by her side. She was born in Syracuse, NY on October 6th, 1953 to the late Robert and Helen McCabe. Brenda attended Corcoran High School and went on to work at Borders bookstore. She was predeceased by her husband, Robert Haggart, a Syracuse Post-Standard columnist in 1997. Once retired, Brenda relocated to Chesapeake, VA and spent her time gardening, playing cards and bunco with neighbors and friends. She was an avid reader, and known for her wealth of knowledge on many subjects. She will be fondly remembered by all those who knew and loved her. The last published words by her late husband, Haggart, were “Bob loves Brenda forever”, as do we also.

Brenda is survived by her daughters Sarah M. Sawyer and Rebecca M. Zhu (Wylie); step-daughter Mallory H. Haggart; siblings Robert McCabe (Carol), Thomas McCabe (Mary Jo), Mary McCabe-Bunyea, and Karen McCabe Smith; and seven grandchildren, Christopher, Noah, Audrey, Rebecca, Phoebe, Wylie and Titus, who all knew her as Gigi.
