Judith Lynn Wright

Eaton Rapids, MI

Judith Lynn Wright went to be with Jesus her Savior on Thursday, January 25, 2024, just five days after her 62nd anniversary with the love of her life, David Wright. She was born on July 2, 1941, in Lansing, MI.

Judy loved her family with all her heart. She treasured times together on the back deck of their home on the Grand River. She loved spending time with friends, sunshine, and the beach in Florida every winter. She and David enjoyed so many Friday nights out with their gang at Corey’s in Lansing. She loved shopping and lunches out with her daughters, sister, and granddaughters.  Judy was a longtime member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, worshipping at Our Savior Lutheran in Lansing for the past several years. She knew that heaven is where she would spend eternity because of the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Quick witted, always smiling, and the ultimate fashionista, Judy made laughing easy, while always looking sharp. Time spent with her always went too quickly.

Her patriotic nature and love for the red, white, and blue was on full display in and around her home every July as they hosted friends each year for a July 4th Independence Day gathering.

She spent over 30 years working as a phlebotomist for the Laboratory of Clinical Medicine, Sparrow labs, and an urgent care in Lansing. When a vein was difficult to find, they always sent them to Judy, who was quick to remedy the situation.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Ella Cordtz, sister Janet, and infant brother James.

Surviving her are her husband of 62 years, David Wright; children, Kristy (Chris) Baynes, Kimberle (Troy) Becker, David (Tammie) Wright, and Amy (Roy) Davis; sister, Jeannie (Jamie) Wright; grandchildren, Austin, Max, Ashley, Amanda, Abigail, Kendall, Connor, Caleb, Kaylan, and Ethan; great-grandchildren, Declan, Easton, Brecken, Kenzie, Emryn, and Arden; as well as lifelong best friend, Barb McCaige.

A Christian Memorial Service will be held at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 7910 E. St. Joseph Hwy., Lansing, MI, on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at 11:30 a.m. Visitation with the family will be held in the church lobby starting at 10:00 a.m. Memorial gifts may be given to the Message of Hope Scholarship Fund.

Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel. www.EstesLeadley.com

Amy and her mom were best friends,
And they just liked to spend,
Time laughing and being together.
These memories will last forever.

We love you, Amy & Roy.

Mom, Friend, and Grandma
Judith Lynn Wright

She shared life with laughter and a smile,
Making all our days more worthwhile.
She loved family with all of her heart.
Being with her gave our days a lovely start.

We’d sit on her deck in the lounge chairs,
Watching the river life that was there,
Like a Great Blue Heron or robins in spring.
Judith rejoiced in the treasures life brings.

She enjoyed Florida beaches with family and friends,
Whether they were eating out, shopping, or choosing to spend,
Time together chatting or listening to each others’ story lines,
Plus she had a loving relationship with her Savior Divine.

With love, Nancy Davis Hall

Loving Judith
Her heart would skip a beat faster when July 4th came around.
She loved the red, white, and blue and patriotic sounds,
Gathering with friends to celebrate Independence Day.
She loved our country and honored it along life’s way.

She worked at a Lab for Clinical Medicine for over 30 years.
She could find an elusive vein and dry a child’s tears.
She worked at an Urgent Care Center in Lansing, Michigan,
And many patients are grateful this was part of her life plan.

She will be honored for being a loving mother and wife.
She longed to be with Jesus the last few months of her life.
Now she is with Jesus where there is no more pain or sorrow,
And someday we will join her in God’s great tomorrow.

She was a lovely lady and liked to dress the part.
Her family loved her with all of their hearts.
Amy and her son were especially close to her,
They were sad when doctors couldn’t find a cure.

Now she is in heaven with her friend, God above,
And she is meeting Jesus and enjoying His love.
There is no more pain, and sickness is all gone,
For she is entering Heaven’s new dawn.

When it is our turn to go, she’ll be there,
Welcoming us as we marvel at Heaven’s care,
For beyond what we can hope for will happen there,
And Jesus always has more than enough love to spare.

A Mother-Daughter Bond
A mother and a daughter share a special bond,
And like the ripples a pebble makes in a pond,
It spreads across the room with the happiness they share,
And fills those around them with tender, loving care.

Judy was a huge part of my life when we attended St. Matthew Lutheran Church. Jerry and I were unable to attend her service due to illness, but our hearts were there and with her wonderful family. We know we will see her in eternity.
