Wright Lewis has returned to her Heavenly Father and beloved
husband Eldon on July 26, 2013. She was born in Charleston,
Utah, on February 4, 1922, to her proud parents Lorin and
Her younger years were spent enjoying the companionship
and love she had for her four brothers and four sisters.
She married the love her life, Eldon F. Lewis, on June 27,
1947 and ten years later, on August 21, 1957, they were
sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple.
Over the years she worked as a Mom, waitress, sales clerk,
meat wrapper and her last and most favorite position was
that of a "Lunch Lady" at four different elementary
schools. She was very creative and loved working with her
hands. She loved all types’ of crafts, especially,
charcoal, water color and oil paintings, which adorned her
home, with many being given to relatives and friends.
She and Eldon loved going camping and would spend several
weeks a year, in their favorite camping spot, at Wasatch
State Park. She loved butterflies and sometimes while camping
or in her backyard, she and her grandchildren would catch
the butterflies and study them up close. She loved her flowers
and was quite proud of her yard.
Eldon surprised her with an electric organ and she practiced
and practiced until she became quite proficient and has
played it (to the delight of Eldon) and others, almost every
day since. She was very active in the LDS Church serving
in numerous callings including the Relief Society Presidency
and Cub Scouting. She was also a proud member of the Mero
