Charlotte Wiegand Wright died in Winter Park, FL on July 9, 2020. She was born in Baltimore, MD on August 18, 1922 and was predeceased by her parents and two brothers. She married Philip James Wright of Kokomo, IN, in December, 1943, after meeting him at a USO dance at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds. They married in Atlanta and were grateful during war time to have their mothers attend. Shortly thereafter, Philip shipped out to serve in WWII in England and France. In the late 1940's they moved to NYC where they lived before relocating to Long Island, first in Levittown and in 1955, to Farmingdale. Charlotte's sons were born in 1952 (James) and 1954 (Richard). She decided to attend college starting in the late 50’s, graduating in 1962 in the second class of Stony Brook University. She went on to a rewarding career as an English teacher at Walt Whitman High School in South Huntington, NY. She earned her Masters from Columbia University. Charlotte loved to travel, read, sew, listen to Eartha Kitt and most of all to ballroom dance. Once she and Philip moved to Winter Park, they were members and leaders of a number of cotillions. Philip died in June, 2009. She is survived by her sons and their wives, Ann Dean (Jim) and Tara Dolan (Richard), two grandchildren and their spouses and three great grandchildren. Deepest thanks to the Mayflower Retirement Center where she lived for the last twenty years.
