Mary Jo Wright

Mary Jo Wright, a Hollywood Riviera resident for over 50 years, passed away on May 3, 2016 in the loving arms of her daughters. Mrs. Wright was born on November 8, 1925 in Belleville, NJ to Angelo and Pauline Restaino. She was raised in Nutley, NJ along with her two brothers and two sisters. In 1949 she married Harvey Wright and moved to Southern California where her first four children were born. After six years in Arizona and two more children, the family moved to Redondo Beach where she lived until her death.
Mary Jo received her Real Estate Broker's license in 1967 and opened Mary Jo Wright Realty in the Riviera Village. She was an extremely successful broker and was a member of the South Bay Association of Realtors for almost 50 years. Her hard work and successful investment in real estate provided well for her family. Mary Jo realized her dream of traveling the world. She and Harvey spent months on the road visiting family across the country as well as throughout Europe. After Harvey's death in 2003, Mary Jo continued to travel with her family, the TRW alumni and other senior groups.
Mrs. Wright was predeceased by her husband Harvey, brother Pat and sisters Louise and Anne. She was survived by her brother Robert; her children, Dr. Kenneth Wright, Karen Mathieu (Jeffrey), Joanne Wright (Nick), Dr. Howard Wright (Victoria), Dr. Claire Brettell, Lisa Coleman (Garry), her grandchildren Jamie (Kimberly), Matthew, Lisa, Thomas, Angela, Jessica (Michael), Michael, Katie, Andrew, Clara, Kelly and Nicole; Great-grandson Milenko and many loving nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank our mom's caregivers, Arlene, Loida and Tina and Torrance Memorial Hospice for their kind and loving care.
