In Remembrance of Ella Mae Wright

The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear

The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27


Mrs. Ella Mae Wright (Glasgow), born in 1925 to James and Carrie Glasgow, passed away December 6, 2020, at the age of 95, at Walter Reed Convalescent Facility in Gloucester, Virginia.

She was predeceased by her parents, James (Doc) and Carrie Glasgow; husband, William D. Wright; son, Linwood Wright; and 14 sisters and brothers; Mack, LC, Bud, Leola, Ollie, Ethel (Aunt Chris), Doretha, Willease, Bill, Pughes, Nezzie; two at birth; and two grandchildren; Eric and Doretha Wright.

Death is just a gateway that all must pass through, and on the other side of death is a world that’s bright and new. Our loved ones wait to welcome us to that land free from tears where joy becomes eternal and time is not measured by years.

Mom, we miss and love you, forever in our hearts.
