Marie (Morlan) Wright was born on November 15, 1920, in Rippey, Iowa. She married Wendell Wright on September 27, 1941. They spent many years in Jefferson, Iowa, until moving to the Des Moines area in their retirement years to be close to their children. During their marriage, they enjoyed fishing, camping, traveling, dancing and most importantly, spending time with their family. Marie loved to bake, and at one time owned a bake shop. She made all her children’s and most of her grandchildren’s wedding cakes.
Marie was the epitome of the word “Mom.” She loved unconditionally and taught her family how to face new chapters in their lives with grace and acceptance even at the end of her final chapter surrounded by loved ones.
Marie was preceded in death by her husband, Wendell Wright, parents Earl and Alta Morlan, three sisters, Ruby Morlan, Bonnie Delp and Marion Smith, and an infant brother. Left behind with loving memories are her four children, Joe (Gloria) Wright of Lake Panorama, IA, Marshall Wright of Des Moines, IA, Mary (Dan) Miers of Carlisle, IA, and Cathy (Jeff) White of Carlisle, IA, 7 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren, other relatives and many friends.Information provided by: Slininger-Rossow Funeral Home 119 West Lincolnway PO Box 108 Jefferson, Iowa 50129 515.386.2171 www.sliningerrossowfuneralhome.com
