Obituary of Marian Betty Wright

WRIGHT, Marian (nee Lockwood)

March 6, 1925 – May 19, 2020


Passed away peacefully at the Chatham-Kent Hospice, on Tuesday, May 19. Loving wife of the late Russell (2002).  Daughter of William and Eva Lockwood. Survived by her children, Bill (Jean), Ann and Bob (Peggy) Wright. Cherished grandmother of Jacqueline (Dan) Stagner, Lindsay (Chris) Corneal, Michael (Stephen Woods), Kelly (Matt) Fenn, Rob (Melyssa Ruest), Peter (Alexandra) and Ethan (Kaitlin Nye). Adored great-grandmother of Audra, Lenora, Mirella, Amelia, Sullivan, Ryan and Hadley. Predeceased by her sisters Hazel (Happy) Markham, Helen (Craig), Ainslie, Jean (Ralph) Dean, Doris (Bill) Hill and her late sister-in-law Joy (Carlton) McGuire. Survived by many nieces and nephews.

Marian was the proud valedictorian of the 1946 graduating nursing class of Hotel-Dieu  Hospital. After raising her family, Marian worked for many years as a Public Health nurse for the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit, visiting schools in the area and also serving as the Comber nurse when a doctor wasn’t readily available. She was an avid fan at every sports game her children played and was the “go to” person for local Comber history.

In retirement, she and Russell spent many wonderful years at their winter home in Florida, often hosting her sisters, “the lovely Lockwood ladies” of Comber.

Many thanks to the Hudson Manor staff, Chatham-Kent health Alliance and the Chatham-Kent Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Marian Wright Nursing Scholarship at the University of Windsor or the Chatham-Kent Hospice.
