Patricia Ann Wright
Patricia Ann Gillespie Wright passed peacefully on September 30, 2019 at the age of 80. Her memorial service will be held Saturday, October 19 at First Baptist Church, Weatherford at 10:30 a.m.
Patricia was born January 13, 1939 in Perrin Texas. She was the second of four children born to Bill and Ernestine Gillespie. A graduate of Perrin High, she married Bobby Wright of Santo Texas February 28, 1959. They had four children and built a beautiful life together.
Patricia was a RN by profession. She received her nursing degree from Howard College in 1979. Over her career, she worked in hospitals, private practices, nursing homes and she taught. Bobby and Patricia moved to Weatherford in 1995, where in 1997 they opened Vintage Estate's assisted living center (now known as Autumn Hill).
Patricia was active in every community in which they lived. She was always active in their churches. She loved to travel with family, and she loved to crochet. She was known to friends and family as Patricia and Mom, but the name she loved the most was given to her by her first grandchild, Sarah, who named her Pity Pat.
Patricia was born into a Christian family, married a Christian man and together they were able to instill the importance of faith to their children. To quote from a writing that Mom left to us, "My greatest prayer was answered, that I would see all of my children and grandchildren become Christians. It is my prayer that each of you will always serve the Lord with all of your heart and soul, and that you will always remember that Jesus must come first in your life. When all is said and done, He is all that matters."
Patricia was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Joe Gillespie and by a daughter, Mitzi Kaye Wright.
Patricia is survived by her husband, Bobby Wright, her children Greg Wright, Gary Wright and Jeannie Wright Banks, two daughters-in-law, one son-in-law, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Also her sisters, Kaye Albanese and Billie Gillespie, and many other family members, nieces and nephews.
As a family, we will greatly miss her.
