Martha June Wright wife, mother, sister, aunt, and dear friend to many, died Monday June 4, 2018 at 8:36 pm in Hillcrest hospital from complications of cancer. She went peacefully surrounded by her family.
Martha was born and raised in Sapulpa, Oklahoma on March 21, 1948 where she in turn raised her own family. Married to Alvin L. Wright who preceded her in passing, they raised 3 children, Carla J. Wright with her son Bradley Dale Wright, Sam (Melvin L.) Wright with wife Kalya and their son Andrew Zickefoose, and Bryan K. Wright with his wife Jeni and daughter Jade Caroline Wright
Her Mother and Father Winnie and Jake Buchanan had 14 children in all. She was preceded in death by siblings Betty Payne, Jay Buchanan, Bonnie Bristow-Watashe, Shirley Cloudys, Naomi Husley, Tom Buchanan, Hellen Degraffenried, Raymond Buchanan, and Danny Buchanan. She was also preceded in death by niece Lori Caves, and two grandchildren Reagan Sierra Wright, and Brayden Kyler Wright (daughter & son of Bryan K Wright). She is survived by: Fanny Giacomo, Mary King, Diane Sheets and one brother Eddy Buchanan & numerous nieces and nephews.
Martha was an amazing caregiver to her family, friends and even for her chosen profession as an LPN until a neck injury forced her early retirement. She never gave up on her calling continuing to care for and look after friends and family as best she could and even later volunteering and caring for her elderly brother -in-law Marvin Wright until his passing.
She was extremely wise with wily personality. She made friends from many walks of life and people who met her briefly remember her for her humor, her grit, or her caring personality.
Martha’s viewing will be held on Thursday June 7, 2018 at Green Hill Funeral Home Chapel in Sapulpa and her service will be held Friday June 8, at 2pm also in Green Hill Funeral Home Chapel Sapulpa.
Martha would want everyone reading this to reflect on her devotion to friends and family and urge you to take time and make efforts to let those who are important to you know it and to devote yourself to your family as she did.
