WRIGHT, Mary Rose Compagna, 81, of Follansbee, WV went home to be with Jesus on Sunday, March 10, 2013, after a lengthy illness.
Mary was an excellent homemaker and loving mother. Her greatest desire was to please everyone, especially her husband, while never thinking of her own comforts. She was loved by all that met her. Sometimes she would return love with delicious pastries, meals, and homemade breads. As she lived, she was totally reliant on God as her source of strength.
She was born on Feb. 5, 1932, in Follansbee, WV, a daughter of the late Petrio "Pete" and Concetta (Pelligrini) Compagna. She is also preceded in death by three brothers, Joseph, Santo, and John Compagna, and two infant sisters.
She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Charles Allison Wright, whom she married on April 1, 1948; two children, Paula (Chuck) Batson of New Milton, WV and Chuck (Judy) Wright of Follansbee, WV; a sister-in-law, Mary Compagna of Follansbee, WV; six grandchildren, Tommy Paoloemilio, Jennifer Frodl, Wendy (Erick) Griffin, Mary Grace (Javier) Mujica, Jacob Wright, and Joshua Wright; nine great- grandchildren, Allison Frodl, Tyler, Micah, and Milo Mujica, Bella, Libbie, and Maxwell Griffin, Ross Wright, and Conner Wright; and several nieces and nephews.
For many years, Mary was active in the Follansbee Free Methodist Church, where she was a Sunday school teacher.
As years have passed she only became closer and closer to the Lord. Heavens gates surely flew open as she was received with a glorious celebration.
Friends will be received on Wednesday, March 13 from 10 a.m. until time of services at 1 p.m.. at the Mullenbach Funeral Home, 669 Main St., Follansbee, WV with Rev. Harry Knight officiating.
Interment will follow in Oak Grove Cemetery in Follansbee, WV.
