Delores Olevia Wright, age 85, passed away on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at her home surrounded by loved ones. From her birth in Killen, on March 16, 1933 to her death on Thursday, she cared and nourished everyone around her with love, faith, and her sweet smile.

 

Delores owned Classic Cottage gift shop in Killen for 25 years. She loved meeting and making new friends. She truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; chatting with friends and family, snaking on Little Debbies and spending time with great-grandchildren.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to all the staff at Amedisys Hospice, Dr. Jeremy Thompson, and Dr. Jonathan Wright. The family also extends a very special thanks to Jessie Thompson. Words cannot begin to explain the love and compassion he showed to Granny and our family during this difficult time.
