There is a time for everything. For everything a season. A time to be born—July 6, 1932 in Okeana, Ohio. A time to die—Oct. 28, 2020 in Oviedo, Florida.

Betty Doris Wright, a beloved wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully at age 88. Betty was born to Luther and Louise Cameron and was the devoted, eldest sister of Joyce Caudill, Paulette Palmer and Janie Rickert.

An avid reader and advocate for children, Betty dedicated her life’s work to elementary education. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Miami University of Ohio and a master’s degree from the University of Central Florida. After teaching in Ohio for five years, she moved to Florida where she was a revered classroom teacher and media specialist at English Estates Elementary for 29 years before retiring.

Betty’s unwavering faith served as a steady source of strength and inspiration during both challenging and joyful times. She was a dedicated member of her church, Faith Assembly of God in Orlando, for over 30 years.

She considered her family her greatest blessing. Betty is preceded in death by her loving husband of 52 years, Lawrence Wright, her parents and her daughter Lisa Wright DaSilva.

She is survived by her children Randy Wright (Jan), Kay Anness, Shelly Whidden (Bill) and Cindy Wright and her grandchildren Jennifer Wolfinger (Rob), Carrie Lawhorn, Courtney Anness, Chris Evans (Kandace), Lindsey Buffone (Thomas) and Samantha Wheeler (Beck) as well as her three sisters. Her legacy will continue with her great grandchildren Brandon Lawhorn, Owen Wolfinger, Caleb Wolfinger, Roman Fiorenza, Avery Evans, Emmett Evans, Leah Buffone and Baby Wheeler, expected to arrive December 2020.

I was privileged to be Betty's assistant in the English Estates Media Center where she shared her love of books with EE students. She made me feel welcome from the minute I walked in the door. Over the years we shared laughter and tears, and I will miss her as will all who were a part of her life.

Betty and her library train.....what a joyful memory for all the children that attended EEE and for the teachers whose classes with Betty provided stories and learning adventures. Her library, and I say that with great fondness, was a place of sharing and adventures in reading often presented with a read aloud and checkout book time. She will be well remembered as an advocate for reading and learning and for the caring educator that she was.
