Judith J. Wright
June 15, 1938 ‒ September 28, 2017
LEXINGTON: Friendship is a cherished way the Lord cares for his people, and Judy Wright chose to be a vessel of the Lord’s service. In blessing others, she was blessed. Kind, tenderhearted and loving, Judy was well integrated in her family and her church family.
The Lord brought her in to his presence Thursday, September 28, 2017 from her Lexington home. She was 79.
Born Judith Joyce Benner on June 15, 1938 in Lucasville, the seventh of eight children to Howard and Beulah (Gentry) Benner, she was married July 1, 1953 to Clyde A. Wright. They moved to Mansfield in 1968 from Canton.
As president of Wrightway Packaging, Judy helped Clyde in the operations of the family business – a value added company to the corrugated packaging industry – from 1988 to 2007.
A member of Berean Baptist Church and Order of Eastern Star Chapter #236, Mount Vernon, Judy prized her annual trips to the Boardwalk at Myrtle Beach with family and friends.
She is survived by her sons Rick Wright of Lexington, Randy (Michele) Wright of Ft. Thomas, KY, and Craig (Ruth) Wright of Mansfield; grandchildren Sara (Michael) Woogerd, Hannah Wright, Joshua Wright and Kara Wright; great grandchildren Eden and Lilah Woogerd; a sister Darlene (Gail) Moore of Otway; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Her husband Clyde preceded her in death on December 24, 2003. Also deceased are a sister and five brothers.
