Maria Daley (Wright)
Sadly, Maria’s time on this Earth came to an end as she went on to find eternal comfort in the house of the Lord. Maria was a pillar of strength, elegance, and kindness. She always urged everyone to keep fighting even when it seemed bleak and she exhibited that form until the very end.
While she was with us, she always wanted to assure us that no matter what circumstances that everything will be ok. She was a burning light that could radiate an entire room with just her presence and she will be greatly missed. Maria Louisa, was born on September 24, 1946 in Limón Matina, Costa Rica, to Sydne Wright Dale and Maria Scott Scott. Maria often went by the name “Marva.”
On January 26, 1968, Marva gave birth to her daughter, Carolyn, with Robert “Bobby” Daley. They later wed on February 1, 1971 and not soon after, did she depart to the United States for a better life for her family. Unfortunately, Bobby pre-deceased her in March 1986.
Marva had worked many odd jobs until she coincidentally began a job as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). She worked from 1972 until her retirement in 2009 at The Jewish Home and Hospital for the Aged.
Marva was always concerned about the health of family members and friends. Her aunt, the late Mildred Alternor, referred to her as Doctor Marva because she always had a remedy for everything and her medical advice always worked. Marva acted as a big sister to her loved ones and many of them thought she was the strictest person in the world. As they got older, they understood that Marva was only being
overprotective. She was the best friend and protector her family had growing up and they loved her because of it.
More importantly, Marva loved the Lord and was looking forward to meeting Jesus. She was an avid attendee of the Duyrea Presbyterian Church in her neighborhood. During her illness, there was a sense that she was longing for her heavenly home and to live forever with Jesus. Philippians 3:20 reminds us that, “our citizenship is in heaven”.
Marva is loved and survived by her daughter, Carolyn; her brothers and sisters: Vicente Wright, Carlos Wright, Majorie Wright, Emilio Wright, Alvaro Wright, Sidney Wright, Jr., José Wright, Ivonne Patricia Wright, Celia Wright, Rodolfo Wright, and Marvin Wright; her grandchildren: Jenai and Brandon; her nieces: Rosita Runcie, Karena Evans, Lashana and Kimara Wright, her nephew, Ray Evans; her dear cousin, Noemy Brown; the Aldridge and Bovery families; as well as the rest of her extended family and friends.
In the midst of the tears our family rejoices today because Marva is with the Lord in heaven. She will be missed by many, but we can rest assured that if we too accept Jesus as our Savior, we will meet her again in glory, “on that great getting up morning.”
