Martha Ann Wright

of Conway, AR

June 25, 1942 - June 18, 2022

Our beloved, Martha Wright, also know as, "Mama", "Aunt Martha" or "Granny", gained her heavenly wings, Saturday evening, June 18, 2022. She was just one week shy of her 80th birthday.

Martha was born on June 25, 1942 in De Valls Bluff, Arkansas. It was here where she was raised and graduated high school in Hazen, Arkansas. Following her ambitious spirit and determination to succeed, Martha pursued a technical school in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated with a four-year degree. Her passion for helping others, combined with a steady hand and sharp mind, led her to a life-long career as a lab technician at the Human Development Center in Conway, AR.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Bill Wright; sons, Paul Gray (wife, Lisa) and Glenn Gray (wife, Susan); grandchildren, Ashley, Amber and Sam Gray, Jessica Huddleston (Daniel), Hailey Johnson (Evan) and great-grandchild, Cooper; Anna Ottens (Jason) with great-grandchildren, Matthew, Mitchell and Maddie.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Bo Tighlman and Minnie Day.

Martha will forever be known for her compassionate heart, selfless nature and generous spirit. She found her joy in giving and doing for others. Her endless gifts were always something hand-made straight from her heart. She was an incredibly talented artist and could draw/paint/make anything with amazing accuracy. Other hobbies she loved (and was exceptional at) included; quilting, cooking/baking, sewing, calligraphy writing, gardening and motor cycling riding. Although she was too humble to admit it, her artistic abilities were unmatched! No matter how many times she was encouraged to sell her work, she refused and said her payment was truly in the gift of giving. When she wasn't helping clients at work, Martha spent her time caring for her grandchildren, family, neighbors, friends, co-workers, elderly family members etc. Every stranger she met turned into a new extended family member.

A visitation for Martha will be held from 6-8:00pm on Friday, June 24, 2022 at Roller-McNutt Funeral Home, Conway. Her services will be at 10:00am Saturday, June 25, 2022 at Roller-McNutt with Bro. Larry Grubbs officiating. Interment will take place following the service at Crestlawn Memorial Park, Conway, AR.

Bill, we are so deeply sorry for your loss, and the loss of The best neighbor in Martha. Martha was always friendly, selfless and caring. Hunter remembers when she would make him an extra special Halloween treat each Halloween. She would bring baked goods over, just because, Her garden and flowers were always so beautiful and definitely enhanced the neighborhood. I know you will miss her very much, as will we and everyone who knew her, but please find comfort in knowing she will always be with you, and is happy and carefree now, Heaven gained another angel. God bless,
