Dorothy L. Wright Obituary

She enjoyed bowling and was a lifelong NASCAR and NFL fan. On any given day she could be heard screaming and cheering for her team or driver.

Dorothy is survived by her daughters, Melody Rayhart (Gene), Bunny Mills (Debra), Lyric Stephens, four grandchildren, Casey O'Connor (Trish), Samantha White (Ovett), Katrina Hughes, James Wells, 9 great grandchildren, three great-great grandchildren, one niece, Charlotte Hart, she also leaves behind a lot of other caring relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, Herman Jones, Edward Warren Jones, and Grover Cleveland Jones Junior, one sister, Helen Metzel, her daughter Lori Satterlee, two grandchildren, and two husbands, Royal Mills and Ellis Wright.

Dorothy's wish was to be cremated so there will be no services. She wanted everyone to remember her as the lively and loving person she was.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to The Alamogordo Hospice.
The family of Dorothy Wright wishes to thank Access Home Care and Alamogordo Hospice for their loving care given to Dorothy.

The Wright family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements.
