Joan G. Wright
Joan G. Wright, 76, of Coinjock passed away February 11, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. Joan was born May 14, 1946 in Charlotte, NC to the late Edward and Elizabeth Garman.
Her older sister, Carol, and younger brother, Ed, shared in on her life’s adventures growing up. I could tell you of all the stories from where she went to college to her travels all over the world, but she didn’t want that. Joan never wanted the attention on her for she was more interested in others.
Joan had the heart of a servant; always helping and giving selflessly. She lived her life for Christ and finished it to the end. If there was anything of importance for Joan’s lasting legacy, it was for people to know who Jesus is and to share the Gospel. Well done good and faithful servant.
Joan is survived by her husband of 38 years, Thomas Wright, Sr; siblings, Carole Stout (John) and Edward Garman (Shari); stepchildren, Tom Wright, Jr. (Terri), John Wright (Jale), Heather Donis, Kristen Boyd (Justin) and Lisa Childress (Charles); along with many grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family members.
“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:11-13
