Clarie M. Wright
Clarie M. Wright, 100, of Chattanooga, died on Wednesday, March 30, 2011 in a local health care facility.
She was born Feb. 21, 1911 in Lauderdale, Ms. to her parents, Will P. and Lela Moore. She accepted Christ at an early age and joined Mt. Olive Baptist Church.
Clarie came to Chattanooga in the 1940s and married James Frank Wright. They were members of Union Hill Baptist Church with Pastor William H. Ryan. She was a Sunday School teacher and president of the Missionary Society.
She enjoyed sewing, cooking and baking cakes. She also enjoyed opening her home to her missionary group for meetings and dinner. Clarie continued to serve and worship God faithfully, even when her health began to fail.
For health reasons, Clarie agreed to live with her niece and husband, Betty E. and James Mapp. After many years in their care, she became very ill and required the special care of a health care facility (NHC) where she remained until her death.
Clarie was preceded in death by her brothers, Booker T. Moore, Curtis Moore and Johnnie B. Moore; and sisters, Lula Anderson, Willie Ann Moore and Della Cole.
She is survived by her sisters, Mrs. Blannie McCoy Dove (who is 102 years young) and Mrs. Lenora Payne; and many nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind many special friends, Mrs. Olivia Johnson Southall, Janie McDuffy, Mrs. Pat Walker, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hill, Jimmie Hill, Mary Favors, Mrs. Peggy Moore and Mrs. Shirley Little.
