Wright, Magdalene “Lenora”

Passed away peacefully at Linhaven on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at the age of 89. Beloved wife of the late Stan (2004) who she now lovingly joins. Cherished mother of Glenn (Elvira), Murray (Donna 2002), Larry (Stacey), Jan (Al Sackfie), and Brian (Angie). Proud grandmother to Chris, Amy, Andrew, Shane, Devin, Jada, Tori, Kodi and seven great-grandchildren.

Lenora worked for Family and Children’s Services and was active in many organizations through the years including St. Giles Presbyterian Church and their Seniors Club, Probus, Time Out, and lawn bowling to name a few.

In Lenora’s final years she battled Alzheimer’s but her independence and determination showed through to the end.

My sympathies to all your family. I am sure you will miss your mother and grandmother very much. I will always treasure my fond memories of Aunt Lenora. She was a very special woman and I had a particularly wonderful conversation with her just a few years ago, one which I will always value.

With caring,

Our hearts go out to the Wright family on the passing of a wonderful lady. We will miss "Aunt Lenore". Gord and Erin have many memories of happy times spent with "Uncle Stan and Aunt Lenore" at Muskoka Glens in Huntsville.

Dear Wright family,

My deepest sympathies on the loss of your Mom and Grandma. Even though she told me to call her Lenore, to me she was always Mrs. Wright. It was a pleasure to know her and I always looked forward to our visits when we were in St. Catharines. In later years, I enjoyed our phone visits before she went into the home. She made the kids and I feel as if we were a part of your family.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Lyn Sackvie and family
