Katherine Coleman Wright, 98, of Lynchburg, passed away on Tuesday, July 9, 2019. She was the loving wife of the late James Thaxton Wright for over 60 years until his death in 2010.

Born on November 5, 1920 in Lynchburg, she was the daughter of the late Frank Leslie Coleman and the late Eva Bryant Coleman. In addition to her parents and husband, she is preceded in death by a sister, Evelyn Glass.

Katherine loved her family supremely and is survived by her children, Marsha Berry and husband Bob, Larry Wright and his wife Gail, and David Wright. Her pride in joy were her six grandchildren, Alan Berry and wife Kristi, Alana Puskarich and husband Tom, Allison Neumann and husband Matt, Brandon Wright, Jordan Wright, and Tabatha Terry and husband Tim; and nine great-grandchildren, Jack and Kaeli Berry, Caleb and Sydney Neumann, Jimmy, Sammy and Lucy Puskarich, Hunter and Aubree Terry. Katherine’s brother, Paul Coleman and his wife Marie and her sister, Bee Lipscomb were such a blessing to her. Her family members wish to thank the staff of Valley View assisted living for their care of Katherine over the past year. She hated to relinquish her independence, but was happy to have the care they provided in a safe environment.

The family will receive friends from 10 to 11:30 am on Friday, July 12, 2019 at Whitten Timberlake Chapel with a graveside service to be held at 12:30 pm immediately following the visitation at Virginia Memorial Park.

Marsha, Bob and family...

I was sad to learn of Katherine's death. She was a wonderful, caring, loving lady. She was a treasure to all of you and to everyone who knew her. I have fond memories of her warm hospitality at their home. When I would see her and Jim out in the community, it was always a sweet, encouraging visit that made me smile. We pray the Lord will comfort, encourage and sustain you with His abiding peace and everlasting love now and in the coming days.
