Lois Wright

May 20, 1925 - January 6, 2018

Mom passed away peacefully early morning January 6, 2018 at Samaritan Place, Saskatoon. She was predeceased by her husband Charles Arthur Wright, parents George and Elizabeth (Cameron) Noble, siblings: Thelma (Mac) Gavin, George (Jean) Noble, Marjorie (Norm) Knowles and brother and sister in-law Roy and Jean Wright and brother-in-law Ed Diment. Lois will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by her five children and her grandchildren: Susan (Jim) Marshall - Victoria (Adam) Thomson, Melissa (Michael) Mann, Roslin Marshall; Sharon (Len) Rempel - Luke (Angela) Rempel, Naomi (Mark) Mitchell, Rebecca (Matt) Wailing; Robert (Sylvie Roy) Wright - Gabriel Roy-Wright (Amanda), Orion Roy-Wright ( Luciana), Leilani Roy-Wright, Angela Roy-Wright; Caroleen Wright - Levi (Elisha) Mitchell, Joshua (Jennica Giesbrecht) Mitchell, Paul (Mattie) Mitchell; Cynthia Wright-Fulton (Jack) -Mackenzie Fulton (Lily). Mom is also survived by her sister in-law, Phyllis Diment and many nieces and nephews and her great grandchildren: Charlotte, Allister Thomson; Vienna, Fraser Mann; Everett, Mitchell Rempel; Cole, Beau, Lane Mitchell; Sloan, Russell Wailing; and Leo, Harrison Mitchell. Lois grew up in Regina attending Lakeview Elementary and Central Collegiate. She moved to Winnipeg with best friends, Betty-Lou Armstrong and Mary Fidlar, to work as a secretary. She loved her independent work life and spoke of it often. During Art and Lois's courtship they enjoyed frequenting the Quality Tea Room, Blue Bird Cafe, Regina Beach and dancing at the Trianon Ballroom. In 1949 they married in Calgary where Susan and Sharon were born, then moved to Regina where Robert and Caroleen were born, and finally settled in Saskatoon where Cynthia was born. Mom spent her summers at Emma Lake, with five children, dogs, an outhouse, no running water, and she loved it! Many friends came to visit. Great times were had at the lake with special friends Cec and Bill Dixon. Mom loved: her husband Art, her children, family, friends, singing, music, being busy and purposeful, favorite comedians, bowling with special friends (Gladys and Kay), dogs, children, inside-out navy sweatshirts, independence, privacy and finally: her kitchen stool, TV and a spot of rum. Her personality was dominated by a great sense of humour, independence, and love for her family and for people in need. She volunteered for many years with Save the Children. Her spirituality was public at times but was always present privately. Mom lived at Samaritan Place for the past 5 years where she always received compassionate care - our sincere thanks to the staff and volunteers. Family prayers were held January 10, 2018 and a celebration of her life will be held in the spring. Donations can be made to: Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, Save the Children Canada, or Samaritan Place.
