Sharon M. Wright 1953 - 2006

Syracuse Elementary teacher, Sharon M. Wright, age 52, passed away last week in her residence after losing a battle with leukemia. She was born to Harry G. and Catherine M. Fackler and was a lifetime area resident. She graduated from Fairfield High School in 1971, Goshen College in 1977 and received her Master's Degree from Ball State University. She most recently taught Kindergarten and Reading Recovery.

A memorial service was held today at 1:00 pm at the Syracuse Church of the Brethren. Her complete obituary can be viewed here.

All who knew Sharon will tell you she was a kind, gentle person with a caring spirit and a winning smile. Her husband told me today that she never gave up, and five days before she passed away she still knew she would return to her classroom and to her colleagues. It was not to be.

She is survived by her husband Jay T. and daughter Sarah Marie Wright and son Timothy John Wright .

A special thanks also goes out to all the many parents, volunteers, and teachers from North Webster and Milford who volunteered to teach at Syracuse this afternoon so the Syracuse staff could attend the services.

We truly appreciate the "pitch in" effort that continues to be a big part of the Wawasee family.
