Dorothy Kay Williams Wright, 68, passed peacefully from his earthly life on Sunday, Nov. 22, 2015, at Lower Cape Fear Hospice and Life Care Center.
She was born July 30, 1947, in Wilmington, one of 11 children born to Ellis Carson and Lillian Crocker Williams. Also remembered is her husband, James D. Wright and step-daughter, Paula Wright, both who preceded Dorothy in death.

Wright, Jr. and Jennifer Wright; 11 grandchildren; five great grandchildren; brothers, Marlon Williams (Marsha), Elmer Williams, Alvin Williams (Cathy), Glenn Williams (Linda) and Charles Williams (Lee); and many nieces, nephews and extended family.
