In memory of
Marilyn P. Wright
Marilyn Patricia ("Patsy") Wright, was born in Encinitas, California, January 12, 1934. She grew up near the ocean and spent many hours near the sea as a child. Her love of the coast side continued throughout her long life.
During World War II she attended boarding school at San Luis Rey Mission where she was first introduced to the Catholic faith. Her love for Jesus grew and at the age of 19, she was baptized as a Catholic at Our Lady of Victory Church in Compton, California. Marilyn developed a sincere devotion for the Blessed Virgin Mary which embodied her service to others in the Legion of Mary.
She was married on October 3, 1953 to Donald Vernon Wright, and was a devoted wife and mother of four children, Therese Carmen, Marcella Marie, Cecile Bernice, and Vincent Craig Wright.
She was an entrepreneurial business woman starting with her career as a diamond-level sales representative for Avon Cosmetics. Later her career in sales blossomed into real-estate where she earned her status as a respected broker of The Coastside.
Her love for the Word of God inspired her to become a church Lector and Eucharistic Minister at Our Lady of the Pillar. Her humble spirit enabled her to do even the less visible jobs such as cleaning the Holy Water fonts weekly. Her favorite ministry was visiting the Three Bells in Montara to pray with the residents.
She has four grandsons, Luke, Brian, Alex, and Spencer; and one great-granddaughter, Jaxon who were always in her thoughts.
She entered into eternity with her family at her side, lifting her spirit onward.
Reception to follow after the mass.
