Rita Wright, age 88 of Plymouth, passed away peacefully on May 14, 2020. Beloved wife of the late Gordon. Loving mother of Vicki (Joseph) Philips, Mark (Debbie) Wright, Greg (Karen) Wright, Kenneth (Laura) Wright and Glenn (Cathy) Wright. Proud grandmother of 18 and great grandmother of 6.
Rita was the most dedicated wife, mother and grandmother to her grandchildren and great grandchildren, attending all of their sporting events, plays, dance recitals, and other events in their life. Her favorite saying was, “I’m blessed”. Out of everything, there was one very important aspect in her life that topped everything, her faith. Rita Wright was a firm believer in Christ and knew that it was her time to be called home to heaven. Knowing how strong her faith was, we can be comforted knowing she is in heaven being reunited with her beloved Gordon and all of her loved ones that have passed before her.
