Katherine Coleman Wright, 98, of Lynchburg, passed away on Tuesday, July 9, 2019. She was the loving wife of the late James Thaxton Wright for over 60 years until his death in 2010. Born on November 5, 1920, in Lynchburg, she was the daughter of the late Frank Leslie Coleman and the late Eva Bryant Coleman. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a sister, Evelyn Glass. Katherine loved her family supremely and is survived by her children, Marsha Berry and husband, Bob, Larry Wright and his wife, Gail, and David Wright.

Katherine's brother, Paul Coleman and his wife, Marie and her sister, Bee Lipscomb were such a blessing to her. Her family members wish to thank the staff of Valley View assisted living for their care of Katherine over the past year.
