FARMINGTON – Patricia Ann Wright, 83, of New Sharon, died early Thursday morning, June 26, 2008, with her family at her side at Orchard Park Living and Rehabilitation Center, Farmington.

She was born Sept. 22, 1924, in Galesburg, Illinois, a daughter of Frances Joseph and Helen (Nelson) Blake. She was married, Aug. 23, 1946, in Oquossoc to the love of her life, Linwood Wright. She enjoyed and supported her husband’s military career in the United States Air Force. She was known for her ease at adapting to moving her family, making new friends easily and for keeping in touch with the multi generational friends that she “collected” through her life journeys, often writing beautiful letters as a
way of keeping that connection.

She enjoyed music, particularly Irish music, and cheering for the Boston Red Sox. A member of St. Joseph’s
Catholic Church, Farmington, she was a woman of great faith and found prayer as a helpful way to offer love and support to those in need.

Some of her favorite causes included the Pine Tree Camp, Boys Town, the Newman Center at the University of Maine, Orono and the Sweetser Home. Her greatest joy was her family and she felt a great sense of peace knowing that they were secure, content and happy with their lives.

She is survived by her loving husband of 61 years, Linwood, of New Sharon; four daughters: Barbara A. Gooding and her husband, Frank of Saco; Lynne A. Walsh of New Sharon; Kim A. Gardner and her husband, Carlton of Greene; Kerry A. Blacker and her husband, Jonathan of Denver, Colorado; two sons: Jeffrey M. Wright and his wife, Cindy of Farmington and Gregory M. Wright and his wife, Kari of Kennebunk; one brother, William Blake and his wife, Dorothy of Galesburg, Illinois; 14 grandchildren: Jennifer, Teresa,
Jason, Sarah, Matthew, Ariel, Nathan, Lisa, Justin, Alicia, Lindsey, Elizabeth, Alexander and Samuel and 12 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by a sister, Mary Blake.

At Patricia’s request, there will be no services. Her family suggests that those who desire may give gifts in her memory to Pine Tree Camp 114 Pine Tree Camp Rome, Maine 04963.
