Ellen E. Wright

Ellen “Midge” E. Wright, a cherished mother, sister, aunt and friend, passed away on Dec. 31, 2011. She is happy in heaven with her husband, Ed, and other family members.

She leaves behind her children, Denise, Jim, David and Jerry. She is survived by her sisters, Genevieve Currie, Evelyn Wright, Joan Anderson and Margaret Sheehan, and her sister-in-law, Alice Scanlon. She is also survived by her brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and many friends.

Midge had a full and happy life. She enjoyed many hobbies including singing, playing guitar, painting, sewing and playing cards. After retiring from her job as a telephone operator, Midge and her husband enjoyed many years of retirement in Florida.

Everyone who knew Midge appreciated her joyfulness, generosity and sense of humor. She was devoted to her family and lifelong friends. Midge was deeply loved and will be surely missed.

Thank you to the caring hearts and hands while living At Home With Friends, where Midge spent her last three years. Also, special gratitude to the wonderful staff at Tampa General Hospital for their kindness and support.

A memorial service will be held in March.
