She lived at Palm Valley Care in Elk Grove for the past four years, and especially enjoyed going to the Waddell ranch, visiting family and seeing the animals.

Following graduation she enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, where she met and married Rolland “Sarge” Wright. They were married for 42 years until his death in 1995.
The family moved to Wilton 32 years ago, and friends and family described Mrs. Wright as someone whose home was always open to all, including stray animals who found sanctuary with her.
After the move to Wilton, Mrs. Wright worked for awhile as manager of Circle K, first at the store at 3rd Avenue and Elk Grove Boulevard, and later at Wilton and Grant Line roads.
She is survived by her children, Faye Wright and Arthur Wright both of Elk Grove, Loretta Dirmeyer of Herald and Lynda Long of Wilton; her stepson, Ron Stevens; her sister, Shirley Hutcherson of Sacramento; her uncle, Lloyd Stuchel of Oroville; her lifelong friend, Eightha June Coffman of Arkansas; eight grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
