Into the arms of our Loving God, on June 4th, 2016, at the Cookeville Regional Medical Center, his child, Elizabeth M. Wright, age 85, of the Lancaster Community,


found peace and comfort in the company of her beloved husband of 60 years, Everette William Wright, who preceded her in 2011. They were married in New Haven Ct. on September 21, 1951.


            She and her husband founded the business, E.W. Wright, Inc. in Guilford CT, which they owned and operated from 1971 until their retirement in 2011. Their company invented and manufactured instruments for research in the medical community: they both were very proud of the number of lives that were saved by the equipment their company produced.


Mrs. Wright was a Christian lady who attended the Lancaster United Methodist Church, where she loved to sing in the choir. She was a kind, loving, and giving woman who found the good and shining light everywhere she went. Up until her death, she was an avid bowler, sewed her own clothes, tended the garden, wrote poetry, played the organ, had taught Sunday School and led Bible classes while in CT.  She loved her family, friends and all the wonderful animals that graced her life.


Left behind on earth to cherish her memory and continuing to live life are her three children, Susan Elizabeth Wright (Gery), with whom she lived happily,  Linda J. Wright, Thomas B. Wright and two grandchildren, Alyssa/Charlie Wright and Nicolas Wright.


Before moving to TN, Mrs. Wright lived 81 years in CT. where she left behind many friends who she loved and who truly loved her.


As per her wishes, Mrs. Wright was cremated and the ashes of she and her husband will remain together forever as they are now in Heaven. She is greatly loved and missed.


A Memorial Service will be announced at a later date.








Sanderson of Carthage, was in charge of the arrangements.
