First, let me extend my deepest sympathy to your family in the loss of your mom. My mom was a childhood friend of Margaret, Mary, and your mother, Miriam. Margaret graduated with my mom and dad, Mervin and Wanda (Lehman) Wright, in 1945, from Forest High School. Margaret and my mom remained good friends in school, and during the years after graduation, marriage and family, and later in life even though they lived miles apart. My mom passed away in 1997, from cancer. I fondly remember one day when my mom was in the hospital, feeling very discouraged. I wanted her to get out of bed and take a walk in the hallway with me, but she didn't want to. It was indeed a very low day for my mom. Later in the afternoon, two very kind, sweet ladies showed up during visitation hours. It was your mom and Mary. I have cherished that visit in my memories so many times throughout the years. Your mom and Mary had such a beautiful visit with mom, and brought her a ray of sunshine and hope that day. After they left, my mom decided she wanted to take a walk around the hallway. I was so grateful for your mom's and Mary's visit! I like to think of them as a divine intervention to help lift my mom's spirits and morale. Your mom was a special lady and friend who enjoyed her life to the fullest! You and your family will be in my prayers as you celebrate her life tomorrow and in the days to come with the many memories you shared with her. Kathy (Wright) Thompson

Remembering a friend from way back when...playing in the band, going to the fair...then as young moms raising our kids together. And finally, spending long mornings (and afternoons) at Panera, talking to a best friend who I could tell anything and everything. I sure will miss you! Love, Jean

Aunt Miriam had a ready smile with a twinkle in her eyes. She made everyone welcome and gave of herself freely. She treated me with love, acceptance, and encouragement. I have great memories of spending time at her home, with Ed and the player pianos, cousins , cats and chocolate chip cookie dough!! Later when I had children of my own in far flung places Aunt Miriam would keep in touch which always meant so much to me! Miriam, lover of all and loved by all, you are missed. Anne Culbertson

'And He will raise you up on eagles' wings; bear you on the breath of dawn; make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand'. May Jesus our risen Lord & Savior richly bless you all as you remember and celebrate Miriam's life legacy. Her memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew her.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Aunt Miriam was a special aunt. She was a big part of my life growing up. The family I came from and her family spent the holidays together until I was in my 20's. When she hosted she went all out. During many summers growing up, I spent a week at her house and went out west for 2 weeks with her family. Such fond memories. I continued to stay in touch with her later on and always enjoyed our visits. My tribute to her: "M" y second mom. "I"nsired me to be positive. "R"eadiness for holiday hosting. "I"rresitible magnetism-her smile. "A"ctive lady who took walks, bike rides and was always ready to go places. "M" atriarch by leading with laughter and caring. Miss you already, your niece, Lynn
