Our beloved, Anna May Hill Wright, crossed into the light of Heaven with Jesus on November 2, 2021, while surrounded by the love of her family. She was born in Corning, Ohio, on May 9, 1955, to the late William J. Hill and Anna M. Kaido Hill. Her father nicknamed her Charlie at a very young age, and that name stuck within her family throughout her life. From school age through adulthood, others knew her as Anna May or, more simply, Anna. Charlie had dreams of joining the Peace Corp, but God planned otherwise. She gave birth to Julie M. Wright and Sally Ann Wright DeGarmo, and married Gary W. Wright early in life. For many years, Charlie was able to be a nurturing stay-at-home mother. God changed that path when she started working outside of the home. Anna was employed in banking, dental offices, and finally with Kroger, in New Lex, from where she retired after working over twenty years. Charlie is survived by “her girls’”, Julie and Sally, her favorite son-in-law, Brandon, and a very special, most precious, granddaughter, Abigail “Abbi” Lynn DeGarmo. In addition, she is survived by the most amazing family, her big sister, Mary Margaret Hill Core McDaniel, favorite niece, Sheila Core Smith, spit-fire great-nephew, Alec “Brody” Smith, ornery nephew Sean and beautiful wife, Petula Core, sassy great-niece, Haley Core, and a character of a nephew Willard, along with his special wife, Becky Burns. One aunt survives her as well, Rose Kaido Gnuschke. She also had a very special pup, Buster, and grandpups, Bella, Alpha, and Chubbs. The good Lord brought Buster into her life when she was in need most. Charlie is preceded in death by her parents and grandparents, John and Rose Kaido, an aunt, Mary Kaido Careins, husband Gary, brother-in-laws, David Core and Bob McDaniel, sister Frances Kay Hill Burns. According to Julie and Sally, their Mamma raised them the best she knew how. She enriched their lives with the joys of God’s creatures and His nature. If there was anyone who taught them to bust their hump, it was her, and she did everything she could to make sure they knew the value of a dollar. This amazing woman loved unconditionally, and she will forever be loved. She was our angel on earth, now from Heaven above. Mamma’s wings were ready, our hearts were not. Soar with the eagles Mamma!
