Haley Hughes

Haley Clare Hughes, 22 of Kinards who was born on December 31, 1998, passed after a brave battle with Ewings Sarcoma on October 18, 2021.


Haley was the daughter of Russell and Susan Suber Satterfield and Ben and Tricia Owings Hughes. She is survived in addition to her parents by a sister, Jade Hughes and the love of her life, Howard “Rocky” Pitts.


She was a 2017 graduate of Mid Carolina High School and a member of the Mid Carolina High School tennis team and honors choir. Haley was a proud graduate of Presbyterian College Class of 2021, with a double major in Biology and Art History and a minor in Chemistry. Much of her senior year was completed from her hospital bed while enduring chemotherapy. Haley was a member of the ADPI Sorority.


Such was the determination of this strong and kind young warrior who always had a smile on her face during the toughest of times. Haley became an inspiration for other children with cancer and had developed friendships with many far and wide. She was the light of her Mama and Papa's lives.


A private memorial service will be held for the family due to Covid concerns.


For those friends and loved ones who are left to carry on her memory, please remember Haley in acts of kindness to those in need.


In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials may be made to Presbyterian College, 503 Broad Street, Clinton, SC 29325 or at  https://www.presby.edu/giving/give-now/ (and click the "giving" tab at the top) in Haley's memory. The family intends to establish a scholarship to honor her memory.


Memorials may also be made to MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, 10 McClennan Banks Drive, Charleston, SC 29425.


The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Oncology staff whom Haley called her family as well as all of the Hope for Haley supporters who made it possible for her to remain close to MUSC for treatment.

Russell and Susan,
With all the turmoil going on around us right now I always looked forward to Haley Clare's posts and how positive she always was no matter what she was going through. I was devastated when I heard the news as I know you are. To go through all that she has over the last year and see the light at the end of the tunnel and to have such a bright light gone at the next turn. She was a precious little girl who grew into a beautiful young lady with a heart of gold. She was just too beautiful and good for this cruel world we live in. Both of you will forever have a beautiful angel with gorgeous flowing long hair watching over you. My prayers are with you and may God give you the peace you need during this time.

What a blessing to have been Haley's teacher and get to know that talented, intelligent, creative, beautiful, and wonderful girl! I will always cherish the time I got to spend with her and how she made Barrett's day by picking her up from kindergarten and walking her down to our 4th grade classroom. Russell and Susan, you modeled loving and supportive parenting at every turn. I'm covering you in prayer.

God welcomed an Angel in Heaven. We will never be able to explain Haley’s journey, but we can all take comfort in the bravery and the fight in her. She faced this demon with courage and did not let it define her, rather she faced the adversity as no other. Our words cannot defer the pain felt, but we can take comfort in her blessed memories and take an example of her intrepid life. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia

Russell, Susan, Rocky and family,
Our thoughts are with each and everyone of you during this time of loss. Haley fought the battle with more strength than any one person I know fighting cancer. When we think of her, I like to remember her sitting at the beach where she laughed and enjoyed herself on July 4th having a good time with family. Even though she was fighting her best fight, she was not going to let it bring her down. We will miss her and all of you and your friendships when you return home but remember that we were the lucky ones to have had her and you in our lives.
Roy and Sue
