Obituary

 It is with deep sorrow we report the passing of Marcia G (Marc) Wright on November 5, 2022 after a brief battle with cancer. Marc, as she was known to family, friends and former students, taught for 30 years in the Jefferson and Shelby County schools (Erwin, McAdory, Oak Mountain) as a choral director and high school counselor. She loved her students and kept in touch with many of them over the years. Marc was active in her church, Huffman Baptist, the Samford Legacy League, Birmingham Quilters Guild and many other groups. She was an active person. She had many friends and was treasured for her warm heart, upbeat personality and positive supportive nature. She loved her God, her church, her students, her friends, wildflowers, quilts, Smoky Mountains, Alabama football, music and cats. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her. Marc was predeceased by her parents Carl and Grace Gwin of Hokes Bluff, Alabama. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Edwin Wright; sister Marilyn Butler (Jack); brother Perry Gwin; niece Elise Allen (Briggs); nephews Darrell Butler (Heidi), Matt Gwin (Olivia), Wes Gwin; great nephews Cade Gwin, Chris Haley (Melissa), Ben Haley, Caleb Butler, Nathan Butler. She will also be sweetly remembered by her "in law" brothers and sisters, Scott Wright (Sarah), Paula Shivers (David), Beth Warren (Terry); nephews Alex Warren (Erika), Zach Warren, Daniel Shivers (Jessica); niece Alice Lawley (Perry) and the red-headed light of her life, great nephew Wilson Lawley. Thank you to all her wonderful friends who supported her and the family in these last days. Thank you also to Compassus Hospice care for their wonderful support and help. Funeral service will be at Huffman Baptist Church on Wednesday, November 9 at 2 PM. Visitation will be from 12 to 2 PM prior to the service. Please make any honorary donations to Huffman Baptist Church or the Samford Legacy League.
