Patricia Joan "Pat" Wright, 78, of Farmer City, passed away peacefully at 10:12 a.m. Wednesday (Dec. 5, 2018) at Carle Foundation Hospital, Urbana, surrounded by all of her children and grandchildren.
Pat was born Oct. 15, 1940, in Bloomington, daughter of Hope and Cecil Hendren. She married James "Jim" Wright on June 29, 1957, in Farmer City.
Surviving are her devoted, loving husband, Jim; children, Peggy Huffstutler, Marty Wright (Brenda), Julie Roth (Scott), Jennifer Plunk (Ron), and Jamie Wright (Tyson); grandchildren, Elizabeth Majernik (Matt), Tyler Roth (Sarah), Dory O’Brien (Matt), Jordann Costa (Terry), Justin Roth, Christopher Plunk (Brittany), Taylor Poppe (Phillip), and Jack Plunk (Peyton); 10 great-grandchildren; and sisters, Joyce Wells (Bill) and Judy Fondrk (Terry).
She was preceded in death by her parents and infant son, James Douglas.
Pat was a homemaker and farm wife. She enjoyed shopping and traveling. Most of all she was very proud of her family and loved nothing more than spending time with all of them. The highlight of her day was receiving a phone call or text from her grandchildren.
Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday and the funeral at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, both at Calvert-Belangee-Bruce Funeral Home, Farmer City. The Rev. Charles Brannock will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Leibow family. The memorials will assist her special 9-year-old cousin, Emma Leibow, who is battling neurofibromatosis.
