Mary, known as Dee by family and friends, was preceded in death by father, Isaac Rounsavall and mother, Sarah Rounsavall, sister, Ruth Kinsel, stepson Ross Wright, stepdaughter Robbie Wright, niece Sherry Saddler, and her loving husband of 60 years, Robert Frank Wright.
She grew up on a farm around the Athens TX area before moving to Dallas, where she worked for Sears as a clerk, before retiring. After marrying Robert Wright, she traveled between Washington state and Texas, helping to raise many foster children along the way. Always happy to have family and friends surrounding her, she spent her remaining years hosting yearly Thanksgiving weekends and summer vacations for the many great nieces and nephews and friends.
She is survived by multiple nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great great nieces and nephews and many friends.
The family is hosting a memorial service on August 17, 2013 at Mary's residence to celebrate her life and the many memories she left behind.
They ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to The American Cancer Society or your local VFW post.
