Obituary for Laura Violet Wright

Mrs. Laura Violet Wright, age 88 years, passed away unexpectedly at home on Sunday, September 29, 2019. Born Port Arthur on July 24, 1931, the daughter of Urho and Alli Raivio, Laura was a lifetime resident and member of St. Paul’s United Church. She was married to Rodger Wright for 25 years until his passing in 1979 and together they raised 4 children. Laura possessed an independent spirit and a heart of gold and took great enjoyment in socializing with family and friends. She played a huge part in helping to raise her granddaughter Eija, ultimately forging a special bond between them. Laura worked at Eaton’s for many years, retiring at age 65, where she made many lifelong friendships that she cherished until her last day. She will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by her daughters Debra (Robert) Pedersen and Arlene (Juergen) Meier, son-in-law Kari Peuhkuri and daughter-in-law Liana Wright. Grandchildren: Sonja (Shane) Addis, Ryan and Graeme Pedersen, Adam Perrier, Mandy (Dustin) Gacek, Christine Meier and Eija Peuhkuri; great grandchildren Eli and Georgia Violet Addis and Willow Gacek as well as by nieces, nephews and other relatives.

Sorry to learn that Laura passed away. I last saw her last about 5 years ago when I learned of Brenda and Brad's passing. So sad. The Wright family will always have a place in my heart.

Sending our love and condolences. We enjoyed the times that we got to meet Laura when she visited Bird River. She was clearly a kind and strong woman who passed on these, and many other, wonderful traits to her family.
Love, Keith, Jill, Chloe and Cooper.

Debbie, Arlene and family, so sorry to hear of Laura's passing. So many years have gone by. I have many wonderful memories of growing up on Otto Street and am glad your family was a part of it. What a wonderful neighbourhood we all had to grow up in. Our parents provided that to us and your mother held a big part. Hopefully your personal memories will help get you through the sad times. Laura, your dad, Brad and Brenda are also in my thoughts. Take care during this difficult time. Love Donna (Stetch) Parchewsky Aberdeen, Sask

We were deeply saddened to hear of Laura's passing and are offering our deepest condolences to Deb, Arlene, Liana, Rob, Juergen, Kari and extended family. I have so many happy childhood memories of Laura and still miss my dear friend Brad. I think my earliest memory is of Brad and I riding our tricycles to the Current River bridge without permission and the well deserved subsequent scolding we received from Laura and my mom! In memory of Laura, we have donated to George Jeffrey Children's Centre Foundation in Thunder Bay.
Love, Michael, Caroline and Jonathan Bradley Stetch
