Barbara (Brock) Wright, age 88, of Newburyport, passed quietly in her sleep on Sunday evening, November 26, 2017, at Maplewood Center in Amesbury. She was the beloved wife of the late Warren Wright.
One of four daughters of the late Stephen and Elizabeth (McMahon) Brock, she was born in Malden on February 2, 1929, and was a graduate of Cheverous Centennial School of Malden.
For many years Barbara ran an antique store. Later in life she thoroughly enjoyed her job as a dog walker, since she had been an animal lover her whole life. Barbara and her husband were both pilots and loved to fly their plane - it was always so exhilarating. Barbara also taught ground school, and she and Warren both enjoyed being real estate agents.
She is survived by her sister, Marjorie D. Carter of Greenfield, along with several nieces and nephews who were very dear to her, and several dear friends. She was predeceased by her sisters, Betty King and Helen Zammutto.
Memorial Services will be held Thursday, December 7, 2017, at 1 p.m. at Elliott, Woodworth & Rogers Family Funeral Home, 35 Green Street, Newburyport. By request of the family, there will be no visiting hours and burial in Highland Cemetery, Newburyport, will be private.
