Belle had a passion for cooking; she loved to feed her family delicious meals and took delight in keeping her recipes a closely guarded secret. Growing up on a farm she learned the importance of being industrious and she accomplished whatever she set her mind to. She enjoyed crocheting, sewing, reading, and dancing. After retiring from BeautyCo, gardening brought her much delight. She took pride in her plants, inside and outside her home. She loved being outside watching all the birds that would stop by every year, and she provided them with bird baths and feeders aplenty.
She dedicated her life to Jehovah in 2007 and symbolized it by baptism on January 26th of that year. She enjoyed being with her Brothers and Sisters at the Kingdom Hall.
She is preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, Ada Louise Spencer of Butler, OK; Verna Lee Choate of Marlow, OK; and daughters-n-law Donna Wright of Minco, OK; and Teddi Wright of Fairland, OK.
She is survived by her brother John Wesley Smith; three sons: Michael Leroy Wright and wife Kathy; Marcus Lindsey Wright and wife Joanne; Mitchell Bryan Wright; and daughter Marta Renee Lee and husband Chuck.
Twelve grandchildren: Jana McDaniel, Julie Davis, Jill Kirk, Matthew Wright, Megan Wright, Micki Hargrove, Michael Anthis, Bryan Wright, Cameron Wright, Nicholas Lee, Kandice Guy, and Erica Lee; and twenty-four great grandchildren.
The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation for all the thoughtfulness
during the loss of our mother and grandma. We are especially appreciative of the loving care
provided these last few years by those in the Congregation, Interim Hospice, and Advantage.
Because of your love and care she was able to remain in her home.
