Margaret was united in holy wedlock to James Wright, who preceded her in death on their 47th wedding anniversary on Jan. 26, 1996.
Margaret loved the Lord. In her early youth, she was a member of Beulah AME Church. Margaret later joined St. Mark Seventh-Day Adventist Church, which is now Berea Seventh-Day Adventist Church, under Dr. Calvin B. Rock. Margaret was known for her big smile and hearty laugh. She loved her family and friends. She especially loved the little children.
She leaves to cherish her memories: a son, Edward (Alicia) Wright of Lawrenceville, Georgia; daughters, Genovia China (Wilbur) Richardson of Washington, D.C., Doris Ann Wright Waldon of Sanford, Florida, and Beverly Elizabeth Wright of the home; 11 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; one sister-in-law, Chestina Chambers of Baltimore; dear and best friend, Hattie Mae McCoy of Sumter; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
Mrs. Wright will be placed in the church at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday until the hour of service.
Funeral services will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday at Berea Seventh Day Adventist Church, 675 S. Lafayette Drive, Sumter, SC 29150, with Pastor Michael Miller, assisted by Pastor Marquis Jackson. Interment will follow at Hillside Memorial Park.
