Mrs. Wright was born in Sarnia, Ontario on Jan. 8, 1924, daughter of the late Ralph and Gladys Vincent and raised in Meadville and later Frenchtown.

She attended St Brigid School and graduated from Randolph-East Mead High School. On September 3, 1942, she married Leslie P. Wright who preceded her in death on March 15, 2001. They took up residence in Frenchtown where they lived for 35 years. Betty was employed by the Meadville Tribune for 18 years in the Classified Sales Department. Prior to that she worked at the former American Viscose and the former Talon Inc. In retirement, she enjoyed traveling with Les to Connecticut and Ohio to visit their children and grandchildren. She and Les were lifelong members of St. Hippolyte Parish and, more recently, St. Agatha Church. Betty was active in St. Hippolyte Women’s Auxiliary. Her hobbies included sewing, knitting, and crocheting. She was an accomplished seamstress and enjoyed making clothing for her family.

She leaves to cherish her memory, loving children, Beverly (James) Patterson of Cochranton, Gregg (Marcia) Wright of Beacon Falls, CT, Chris (Ken) Zirkle of Cambridge Springs, Tom (Elena) Wright of Pittsburgh and Brad (Heidi) Wright of Meadville, 15 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, 13 great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and her husband Les of 58 years, Betty was preceded in death by a brother Charles Vincent and a granddaughter Jill Oakes.
