Mary (Snow) Wright
January 10, 1948 ‒ November 20, 2020
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.
