September 12, 1922 - March 20, 2022
September 12, 1922 - March 20, 2022 After a long and full life, our loving, caring mother, Margaret “Bonnie” Wright of St. Clair entered eternal life and went HOME to be with her God and her loved ones who journeyed before her. Mom was born September 12, 1922, in Muskegon, Michigan, the oldest of three children and she was proud to be the daughter of two first-generation Austrian Americans, Charles and Anna Busch. At 99 and a ½ years young, Mom was the matriarch of her immediate and extended families. She had a social spirit and a good sense of humor, happily making friends with anyone she met. Her life was full of love for her God, her family, her music, reading, cards and keeping up on world and government affairs. After graduating high school in 1940, Mom entered the work force working as a secretary for the Farm Security Administration in Muskegon, where the needs and protection of the desperate seasonal farm laborers were met. Following, she began work in a government position, working for the FitzJohn Coach Company, where workers converted ordinary passenger cars and vans into 10-15 passenger coaches, a simple and inexpensive answer to wartime transportation. During the early years of WWII, Mom was truly a "Rosie the Riveter," working as part of the war effort when she worked for Continental Aviation and Engineering. She was trained as a test inspector, reading instrument panels on B-17 Pratt and Whitney engines as they were tested and released to the Air Force to be put into planes that flew over Germany during WWII. During this time, Mom met her husband, Arthur, whom she was married to until his passing in 1991. Mom was active and independent, taking pleasure in a life of service to the Lord through her faithful commitment to the former All Saints Episcopal Church in Marysville, where she served as a choir member, Sunday School teacher, lay reader, and created a children's choir, along with countless other church activities. She was also an active member of the Order of Eastern Star, Cornell, Marysville, Chapter #93 and was gifted in music as an organist for 30+ years. Mom spent many hours happily maintaining her beautiful flower beds around her homes in St. Clair, at the Cat Lake Cottage, and their Florida home. She also enjoyed deer hunting up north and traveling, visiting Hawaii twice. She also enjoyed attending activities at the St. Clair Township Hall, the Senior Center, and spending time with her “Lunch Bunch” and card group. She was also a life member of the River District Hospital Auxiliary, now Ascension Health. For many years, she participated in the Senior Olympics and won medals for her award-winning preserves. Mom also enjoyed baking delicious homemade pies, jams and Lebkuchen cookies. Left to celebrate her life are her children and their spouses, daughter, Susan (Ron) Allen; son, William (Margie) Wright; step-daughter, Carolyn (Jack) Youngblood; her 6 cherished grandchildren and their families, Kerry (Kurt) Kromroy, Brent (Jacqueline) Wright, Michelle (Erik) Carrier, Amanda (Rob) Janowski, Melissa (Joe) Kaye and Christine Garretson; 12 great grandchildren; brother in law Theodore Morrell, many nieces, nephews and treasured friends. Those who have passed before her include her parents, Charles and Anna Busch; husband, Arthur Wright; sister, Eleanor Morrell; brother, Carl Busch; grandson, William Furnish; sisters and brothers in law, along with many wonderful friends. The family would like to express our gratitude to the caregivers at Serenity Senior Living for their caring love, compassion, patience and respect over this last year of her life. Mom loved you all! The family honors the memory of Mom and invites you to visit and share memories at L.C. Friederichs and Son Funeral Home, St. Clair on Saturday April 16, 2022 from 10:00 am till 12:00 pm with a Celebration of Life at 12:00 pm. Rev. Dr. Patrick Thompson of McLaren Hospice, Port Huron will officiate. At a later date, Mom will be laid to rest at Hillside Cemetery, St. Clair, next to her husband. If you wish to make a contribution in her memory, Mom would be pleased if you considered the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation, Order of the Eastern Star, Cornell, Marysville, #93, McLaren Hospice Foundation or Serenity Senior Living.
