Patricia Isabell Wright (nee LONG)
March 17, 1926 – March 19, 2019
Pat passed away peacefully in Newmarket, Ontario at the age of 93, with loving family at her side. Pat was predeceased by her loving husband Thomas Allan Wright of 59 years, her parents, Robert and Hazel Long, brothers George and Robert Long, and son David Allan Wright. She will be lovingly missed by son Brian (Ingrid), grandchildren Katrina (Alex), great granddaughter Hazel, Justin (Ally), Christopher (Bryanne); son Keith (Suzanne); daughter in law Sue Christensen, granddaughters Madison (David) and Lexi (Eric); nieces, nephews, and special care givers, in particular Katelyn Hogan.
Pat grew up on Rusholme Road in Toronto, and has since lived in Etobicoke, Parry Sound and Newmarket. She was an avid tennis player, bowler, and bridge player, all hobbies she shared with the love of her life, Al. She enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles and spending time outdoors with family at the cottage on Manitouwabing Lake, especially kayaking, fishing and bird watching. Their love of cottage country prompted Al and Pat to move to Parry Sound where they enjoyed their retirement. Pat has always been active in the various communities in which she has lived, making and maintaining lifelong friends and positively impacting everyone around her.
According to Pat’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Donations in her memory can be made to the Toronto Humane Society at 11 River Street in Toronto.
