Obituary for Linda Wright

Linda  Wright
Linda (Scanlan) Wright died peacefully in Fort Worth, TX on July 21, 2018, at the age of 75.

Services: A funeral mass will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at St. Joseph Catholic Church located at 1927 SW Green Oaks Blvd, Arlington, TX. A reception will immediately follow, at the home of Beth Poulos and Kerry Hembree , directions will be provided at the funeral mass. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Linda's life.
Memorials: In lieu of flowers, donations in Linda’s name may be sent to Universal Health Services at 1208 Country Club Lane, Fort Worth, TX 76112.

Linda was born on April 28, 1943 in Dallas, TX. She graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Masters Degree in Social Work. She was a Dallas County Child Welfare social worker for 15 years. In 1978, Linda reunited with her high school sweetheart Andy, and they were married in Dallas on May 19, 1979. The couple moved to Summerville, South Carolina, where Linda played a lot of golf, read a lot of books, and made a lot of friends. She was also a member of the South Carolina Foster Care Review Board; taught psychology at Trident Technical College; and served both as President of Women’s Golf, and Chairman of the Board, of the Kings Grant Country Club. Linda also worked for Bellwright Industries, the family business.

In 2005 Linda and Andy fulfilled their 1979 promise of returning home to Texas, where Linda picked up where she left off with family and old friends. She spent time at book club, with Sweet Potato Queens, and on the golf course, becoming a Board Member at the Walnut Creek Country Club. Linda taught everyone valuable life lessons, like: Dancing does not require rhythm; If the dogs howl when you’re singing, you’re doin’ it right; and When in doubt about what to wear, go with leopard print and red lipstick.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Grace Scanlan.

Survivors: Linda is survived by her husband of 39 years, Andy Wright of Mansfield, TX; her sister Sue Scanlan Stevens of Arlington, TX; stepdaughters Angela Weir of New York, NY and Pamela (Trip) Howell of Asheville, NC; grandchildren Carolyn Grierson Howell, William Wright Howell, and Olivia Grace Weir; two dogs: Buster and Otis (a.k.a. Buss-Buss and Otie-Butt); many beloved cousins, in-laws and friends.
