Louise Wright Bailey, 83, passed away peacefully at Avalon House in McLean on Monday, January 30, 2012. Louise was the loving wife for almost 60 years of Harry; beloved mother of Judith and Jennifer and her husband, Torbjorn Knutsen; and proud grandmother of Irene and Peter Knutsen. She is survived by her sister, Julia Wright Wells; nephews, William and Robert Wells; and nieces Amanda Wright Austen and Katherine I. (Karen) Wright-Garrard, daughters of her late brother, Fred Boyer Wright Jr. Daughter of the late Fred Boyer Wright Sr. and Irene Straley Wright, Louise was born on August 13, 1928, in Roanoke. She attended Thomas Jefferson High School in Roanoke, Roanoke College in Salem, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (then the Women's College of the University of North Carolina), from which she graduated with a degree in economics. An army wife for many years, Louise traveled the world with her husband, Harry. She was also an avid genealogist, publishing a history of the Straley/Wright family in conjunction with her brother and sister. Friends may call at the Murphy Funeral Home at 4510 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, on Tuesday, February 7, 2012, from 2 to 4 p.m. Interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery on February 8, 2012.
