Mary (Snow) Wright

January 10, 1948 ‒ November 20, 2020

Edison, Ohio

Mary (Snow) Wright, age 72, of Edison, passed away at her home Friday morning, November 20, 2020, surrounded by her loving family.

Mary was born in Mount Vernon, Ohio on January 10, 1948, a daughter of the late Lawrence and Helen “Caroline” (Still) Snow.  She graduated from Mount Vernon High School in the Class of 1966.

On January 28, 1967, Mary married the love of her life, Carl Wright, at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Mount Vernon.  They shared over 53 loving years together as husband and wife.

First and foremost, Mary was a loving homemaker and mom.  She also worked outside of the home as a machine operator at Cosmo Plastics in Mount Gilead and then in housekeeping and the kitchen at the Morrow County Hospital.

A woman of faith, Mary was a member of the Sparta United Methodist Church.

In her younger years, Mary enjoyed bowling in leagues and fishing in nearby ponds.  She enjoyed harness racing and watching her dad race at Scioto Downs.  She always loved playing Bingo, Spades and making trips to the casino to play the penny slots.  In everything she did, she was extremely competitive and never liked to lose.

Mary was a big Ohio State fan and liked spending time with her Shih Tzu’s.  Above all, Mary was a family woman.  She was especially fond of her grandchildren and always loved going to their baseball and softball games.

Mary will be dearly missed by her husband, Carl, of Edison; her three children: Carla (Rick) Moodispaugh of Cardington, Joseph (Abby) Wright of Mount Gilead, Travis (April) Wright of Fredericktown; 10 grandchildren: Erika (Ed) McCants, Laura (Keith) Marcum, Sarah Moodispaugh, Kyle Wright, Joshua Wright, Ashten Smith, Treah (Haley) Wright, Mckayla Wright, Andrew Wright, Aliza Wright; five great grandchildren: Landin McCune, Lexi McCants, Ashton Marcum, Addilynne Marcum, Brantley Wright; a brother, Lawrence (Suzie) Snow of Mount Vernon; and a sister-in-law, Linda Zimmerman of Mount Gilead.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by an infant sister.

Private family services will be held with Rev. Don Mann officiating followed by burial at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Mount Vernon.

Memorial contributions in Mary’s name may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

  • Mary and I have known each other since fifth grade when we both moved to Mount Vernon and attended West School together. She lived a block from me and we quickly became good friends. We both graduated from Mount Vernon High School together in 1966. I know how much she loved Carl and all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends. Mary was a special person and will be deeply missed. Remember the good times and cherish them until you meet again. Sue (Houle) Kinton

  • Mary was my favorite and most fun cousin. We spent a lot of time growing up together in Mt. Vernon staying overnight at each other’s homes. I will miss your humor and laughter. Until we meet again, you will be in my heart forever! Love, you Nancy (Snow) Buckley.

  • I’m so sorry. My heart goes out to her whole family right now. Mary Louise was one of the kindest and warmest people that I know. After just spending a short time with her, I would always feel better.

  • Rest in peace Aunt Mary. We miss you already, but can take some solace in knowing that you don’t have to be in pain any more. See you on the other side.

  • Although she was a cousin, I know Mary was like a sister to my Mom and Aunts (Nancy, Elaine, and Sharon). I’ve heard many stories about their fun and shenanigans growing up. 🙂 Her humor and joy will be missed greatly. Until we meet again, rest easy and in peace, Mary!

  • Our deepest sympathy and condolences go out to Carl and his entire family on the loss of Mary. We will forever miss her laughter at our family gatherings and her competitiveness in her younger years in any outdoor activities. And especially her home made apple pies.

    God bless Mary with eternal peace and happiness.

  • Mary was a dear friend to my mom. Every memory I have of Mary is attached to a smile and laughter . My sympathies to Carl and their family as you mourn. Someone as special as a mother is never gone from this world. May you still see her smile in your mirror and hear her voice singing in your heart.

  • Sorry to hear even though I have never had the pleasure of meeting Mary, i can tell she was a wonderful person. A lot of the Still-Snow family don’t know who I am, but Mary is my niece since I am the half brother of Caroline Snow. My condolences and thoughts and prayers ate with all the family. God bless
