Chrissy Wright

WESTMINSTER WEST, VT Chrissy Wright, 47, passed away February 2 at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center after a short and courageous battle with an unanticipated cancer. Chrissy did not lose her battle with cancer but rather her battle with time. She passed peacefully surrounded by her husband of 29 years, Sean Long, and sons, Tucker Long, 28, and Cooper Long, 22. Chrissy made her home and raised her family in Westminster West, VT. She is the daughter of Norman and Marie Wright of Westminster West and sister of Ann Wright of Brattleboro, MJ Bentley of Westminster, Debra Cobb of Bellows Falls, Michael Wright of Milton, Cheryl Gould of Saxtons River, and Jonathan Wright of Milton. Extended family includes her mother-in-law, May Long, Richard Long, David Long, Diane Long, Colleen (Long) Gottlieb, and Tracey (Long) Gaier. Chrissy is also survived by 21 beloved nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her mother, Marie, in 2010 and her father-in-law, Richard Long in 1999. Chrissy graduated from Bellows Falls Union High School in 1986 and attended Mount Ida College in Newton, MA. Chrissy was many things to many people. She was a devoted wife and dedicated mother, a loving sister and daughter, and a friend you could count on. From her own boys, Tucker and Cooper, to the children she took care of during her time at Landmark College, she made an impact on every child who crossed her path. To all who knew her, nurturing children was her most obvious gift. Her proudest moments were when someone complimented her on her sons and the men they were becoming. She had a love for life that was contagious, which seeped through everything she did. Her quick wit and straightforward approach to life was a refreshing and honest representation of who she was as a woman. She was an avid lover of the outdoors, spending weekends tending to her gardens or out on the front lawn. She was also a fantastic cook and enjoyed time spent in the kitchen. Among other things, she loved reading, good conversation, card games, playing Scrabble, and hosting numerous family gatherings. Vacations and outings to York Beach, Acadia and the Outer Banks with family and close friends held a special place in her heart. She will forever be missed by the countless souls she touched in her time on this Earth. FUNERAL NOTICE: Callings hours will be Saturday, February 6, from 3 to 6p.m. at Fenton & Hennessey Funeral Home in Bellows Falls, VT. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, February 7, at 2p.m. at the Westminster West Congregational Church in Westminster West, VT, followed by an informal gathering at the church.
