On July 20th, 2023, Shirley Joan Wright passed from this life into the presence of her Lord Jesus Christ. At the time of her death, she was surrounded by her loving family and has now been reunited with her husband Carroll.

She will be remembered for her fierce love of her family, her keen sense of humor, and her love of both card games and dominoes. Most of all, she will be remembered for her love of her Savior Jesus Christ. She shared that love with whomever entered her life. She will be greatly missed.

  1. I love you Aunt Shirley! Best aunt and godmother ever. Enjoy the rest of your life with your siblings and Uncle Carroll. Say hi to my dad for me too. Totally heart broken

  2. Grandma is the reason I do what I do. She gave me the genes and love of people. She exemplified love of others. Her heart was always open to everyone. Thank you for demonstration trust and love of Christ in your heart and life grandma!

  3. My deepest and sincerest sympathy to the Wright family. Knowing you all for many years most especially Shirley and Carroll has been a blessing. Ana and I will miss Shirley. We love you all.
