Sheryl "Sherry" Diane (Saffer) Wright

Albany - Sheryl "Sherry" Diane (Saffer)Wright, age 73, passed away peacefully in her home Thursday Nov. 19, 2020. She was born in Muncie on July 29, 1947 to Betty Jean (Lewis/Saffer) Gregg and Derald Lloyd Saffer. Sherry lived in many places growing up, however, Albany has always been her home. She graduated from Albany High School in 1965 then married her high school sweetheart, Harry Wright, on August 21, 1965. They were married just five days short of 55 years. Sherry worked at Craig Trucking, Inc. and Tariff Service both in Albany. In 1984 she attended Ball State University and acquired her Realtor license, then worked for Fisher Givens Realtors in Muncie. She received her Graduate of Realtors Institute designation from Indiana University, served as commissioner on the Muncie Board of Realtors, and was in the Woman's Council of Realtors. She also worked at STAR Financial Bank in 1989 as a Mortgage Loan Officer and in 1995 began working at Ontario Systems, LLC where she remained for 13 years. Sherry was a volunteer at the Albany United Methodist Church Resale Shop. She was a member of the Albany United Methodist Church and Albany Tri Kappa sorority for many years. She loved designing and building two of her homes. She was loved by all and known for her kindness, sweet smile, and for taking care of others. She loved being surrounded by her family the most. Sherry says "Amongst it all, her greatest accomplishments were her two daughters who blessed her with 6 grandchildren and a great grandson."

Survivors include 2 daughters: Kellie Bergdoll (husband: Aaron), Albany, Angie LaBoyteaux (husband: Mark), Carmel; 6 grandchildren: Cory Kissick, Connor Skinner (husband: Justin), Chase Bergdoll, Jordan LaBoyteaux, Gabriel LaBoyteaux, and Zachary LaBoyteaux; a great-grandson: Lincoln Skinner; 2 brothers: Mike Saffer (wife: Karen) Tenino, WA and Doug Gregg (wife: Debbie) Muncie; many beloved aunts, uncles and nieces & nephews.

I first knew Sherry when she was 2 1/2 years old. I was engaged to her Uncle Neal. Many wonderful memories over the years with our families. She was always a big part of them. Sorry I cannot be with the rest of the family at this time, but my thoughts and prayers are.
God Bless, Aunt Marge
