Delois Wright


Never to be outdone-even by the pandemic,

Delois Brown Wright was called to her heavenly

resting place Friday, September 4, 2020. She was clothed in strength and dignity, and laughed

without fear of the future. When she spoke; her words were wise.

She accepted Christ at an early age and was a faithful member of Sidney Temple C.O.G.I.C. for many years. Sister Wright served diligently as Sunday school teacher and church secretary. She loved serving and organizing different programs annually to further the responsibilities of ministry. Many people were healed, saved and delivered during the services. Sweet Memories!

Preceded in death by her parents George and Rowena Brown, her husband Robert Wright Jr., four sons: Lincoln Roy Wright, Edward Charles Russell, Rev. Billy Wayne Wright, Rev. Lawrence Lee Wright; one special great grandchild Christian Wright and twelve Siblings.

She is survived by two daughters: Cora Palmer, Jo McCarty: two sons: Anthony Wright and Virgil Wright all of Mineola, TX, a mother in love to Stacy Gipson, TaMeshia Tuck, LaShauda Turman and Ariel Wright.

Where do I begin! My granny(Madea) I have so many fond memories that I have been reflecting on all this week some lead me to tears some to lol! Countless Sunday school lessons, wed study on Saturday and it was show time on Sunday! I always wondered why Madear always make me recite the lesson, lol but what I wouldnt give to have one more lesson! I remember going to work with her as a child, bring at her house all the time, spending countless weekends there! The school bus stopping at the tip of her yard, we getting off and everyday she had our full meal ready with dessert! Calling me in adulthood just to chat and she always ended her call with I love yall and Id say we love you too Madea! Her love and care molded me into who I am today, she had undeniable strength and had been through so many tragedies and still preserved and pushed forward. Im grateful for inheriting that tenacity and fight in life. I always use to tell her Madea you can go on a trip, go to the beach, shed always say you know Im not getting on no plane! Well Madea Your on to your final destination the only trip that really matters. I know shes resting well and in perfect peace and with that I can go on and continue to cherish the memories!

I love you forever Madea! Rest Well

Love Boo

If nobody in this world loved me, I KNEW without a doubt you did! From day one, you have been my mother. I know I gave you many hard times and made many mistakes but your love never changed! You can tell just as good when I needed something or when I was hurt about something without me even telling you. You would call me and say now Ariel dont you be up there and need something you know Ill get it and you meant it! You would starve if it meant me and my kids were ok! And the love you had for them omg! Them were your kids let you tell it! Would get mad if I disciplined them too lol! And you always told me dont you be up there with your head down, God allowed you to have them children for a reason! And to be completely honest, they are helping me with You and Chris passing! Cause Lord knows, Im strong, but that was the deepest pain I have ever felt when yall left! But, They keep me VERY occupied lol! It was hard explaining to them what happened but they understood that you are our very own angel and that you are watching us from the sky! Im glad I got to talk to you the night before you passed and that you knew who I was! Ooooo you hurt me with this one! But Im greatful I got to spend 27 years of life with you and to know that you are resting and not hurting anymore is also helping me be at peace with this! I know you were soooo happy to see Chris! What I would do to just hug both of you right now....
I love you Granny!!!! I will NEVER forget you! You were beautiful and you WORE that hat!! Lol
Rest beautiful! I love you!

The only thing that gives me solace is knowing that my grandmother found rest in the Lord. She was a very positive influence in my life. She was our personal alarm clock. Delois Brown Wright loved her family. If she had an appointment at 3: 00 calling at 12:00 saying, Are you on your way, were going to be late. She made many sacrifices over the years for her family. She even raised some of grand children as well as great grand. For me, she was the one person that I knew she was going to encourage me in whatever stage in life I was in. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I often times share that she even mention some of the bumps in the road she encountered to only show the one person in life you respect that we all they have them too .
She was my Sunday school teacher for years! To this day, I can truly appreciate every moment of those days. When she had a mission she completed it with passion. She often gather the children in the community for the annual Easter program. In the days when it wasnt a choice if you wanted to attend church. My grandmother wasnt just Madea to us but too many others.
Many days she would fed anyone who came in the door and everyone in the family knew that was life if we knew it. One of her quotes, Keep living, life will teach you some things. When you and I are gone people are going always say negative things about you. Just always keep your line clear with the Lord. Another one of my favorite was. Whatever doesnt come out in the wash, will come out in the rinse.
She was a straight shooter, she was short in statue but didnt mine telling you the unadulterated truth if you needed it. That was her. She loved all of us to the point everyone would think they were the chosen grandchild. If you would ask every one of my relatives they would tell you she only wanted nothing but the best for all of us.
I am thankful for my grandmother taking me to church many times and me witnessing people healed and delivered, saved, and set free. I remembered God healed her from cancer. I am thankful for the sweet memories of the miracles God worked in our lives. I wasnt quite ready for this day. However, my grandmother talked about it often. So listening to her words my love will always remain forever in my heart for Madea.
Love Always,
Grand-baby (Trisha)

Granny I love you! I feel completely broken hearted that I live so far away and I couldn't make it to see that wonderful smile in person. I wish you could have seen my face the first time I heard your voice over the phone. I was taking a ride on the hot mess express but it was one of the happiest moments in my life! You were literally the very first person I spoke with. I was crying on and off that entire day. I still have the email from the guy that helped me find you and the rest of my family on Craig's List! This perfect stranger found you for me and sent me an email with your name, your phone number and all it said was ""Your Grandmother is waiting for you to call her"".

I have tried so many times to make it there to see you and it breaks my heart that I couldn't. I have always said I need to make it there to see my Granny before I can't...and now that has happened. I just hope you know how much I love you. Carlos, Emilio, Michael and Sophia love you too. Rest easy Granny ... you will forever be in our hearts.XoXoXoXo
