Born prematurely in Fort Smith Arkansas on November 2, 1971, Kelly Rebecca Wright came into this world small but mighty. She spent her whole life fiercely fighting against the odds.
Kelly's siblings Dawn Wright Haggard, Mechella Wright and Craig Wright shaped her into the woman she became. Their unending support kept her moving forward and taught her how to love throughout the darkest times in her childhood. Kelly learned about God's unfailing love and grace through the actions of her Mammaw, Grace Wright. She carried that knowledge, compassion and sensitivity with her, and passed it on to those she loved and cared about most. Kelly would go out of her way to bring a thoughtful, hand crafted gift to a friend in need. She had a passion for making others feel the love and comfort that she herself wanted. She was inspired by new adventures, and although a work injury limited her ability to tackle high-impact adventures, she still embarked on new journeys, like her recent love of quilting.
Kelly was a private person who didn't like to like dwell on life's struggles, but instead tried to focus on the loves of her life; her daughters Lezleigh Marshall and Lindsey Beaver. She was most proud of her strong, and wholly beautiful ladies. She deeply loved her significant other of 6 years, Devin Crowl and his son, Caelen Crowl. Her dog Puffy was her favorite companion, and her grand dogs Winnie and Panda could make her smile on her most difficult days.
Kelly is preceded in death by her parents, Richard Wright and Judith Barkai, sister Dawn and neice, Grace.
To honor Kelly, and support her family while they learn to cope with the sudden loss of their beloved mom, sister and companion, the family asks that you proudly wear your best bright, red nail polish, enjoy a delicious cream cheese frosted treat from Merritts Bakery (two things Kelly insisted were a must do) and loudly sing "Ain't no Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye. Because even though not physically present, Kelly will always be there with those she loved and death is not the end, just the beginning of a new journey.
