Ontario County Journal, Friday, July 16, 1909

The friends of Mrs. Edwin A. Wright, Pleasant street, were shocked on Monday to learn of her death, which occurred suddenly about 3 o'clock that morning. Mrs. Wright retired on Sunday night in her usual health. Death was due to heart disease. Mrs. Abbie Gauss Peck Wright was born in Weathersfield, this state, in 1839, and had been a resident of this village for 42 years. She was a member of the Methodist church and was actively interested in its welfare, and in missionary and temperance work. She was a member of the Home and Foreign Missionary societies of that church and of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. Her whole life had been one of devotion to those things which tended to uplift humanity, and her place in the circles in which she was so faithful will be hard to fill. Rev. Ward Mosher conducted the funeral services on Wednesday afternoon and burial was at East Bloomfield. Besides her husband, Mrs. Wright is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Clarence J. Beecher, and two granddaughters, Misses Ruth and Alice Beecher of this village.
