Obituary for Willie Pearl Wright

Pearl loved the Lord and accepted Christ at an early age. She was a faithful member of True Vine Missionary Baptist Church where she served on numerous auxiliaries. She attained many skills and talents throughout her life from various employers, but ultimately retired from General Motors Corporation. Pearl loved to spend time with her family and friends. Some of her many hobbies included knitting, bowling, pottery, sewing, cooking, fishing, shopping, shopping and more shopping. Pearl was a firm believer in God and His Word. She was a woman of faith and an encourager to her family, friends and loved ones. Mom would say to her family on today, “Although this has taken you by a great surprise, please do not cry for me. Jesus has taken me up to Paradise.”

When Pearl was called to her eternal home, she joined her parents, William and Irene Brewer; son, Torri Wright; three brothers, Frank, Jessie, Jerome Brewer; father and mother-in-law, Moses and Bessie Wright; brothers-in-law, Robert, Jimmy, Bobby, Joe Wright, who all preceded her in death.
