Clarkson Music Theatre has lost a great mother, daughter, wife, partner, grandmother, sister, teacher, performer, producer and friend. Ann Wright left us on January 13, 2019 surrounded by family and loved ones. Ann was active with CMT for many years. She was a truly generous soul and she made her mark in CMT in so many ways. She last appeared on stage in CMT's The Gondoliers. She was a valued producer for On the Twentieth Century. She was a cherished conductor for the Christmas Cheer Choir. She performed in countless concerts. Ann served on CMT’s Board. Clearly, Ann was small but mighty and she is best known for her gentle voice, her loving nature, and her huge heart. We extend our sincere condolences to her family and to her partner Bud Old. She will be missed. “May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

Mrs. Wright was my Grade 2 teacher and a friend to our family through St. Christopher's church for many years. She was such a beautiful, kind person.

Our hearts go out to the entire family at this difficult time.

Anne was a wonderful person. We will miss her. I enjoyed singing in a choir which she had directed for RWTO.
