In Celebration of

Constance "Connie" Lorraine Wright

February 13, 1932 -  December 31, 2021

On December 31, 2021, Connie passed away at the age of 89 years and 10 months after a full and happy life. She was a loving, caring and generous person with a determined streak and a good sense of humour. Later in life she lived by the motto…get up, dress up and show up. Connie was always interested in the people and world around her and enjoyed many social activities. Although reluctant at times, she impressed her friends as she embraced technology advancements for communication and enjoyment. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Norm. She was the dear mother of Murray and his wife Jackie and Warren and his partner Rita, and the loving grandmother of Michele (Victor) and Allison Wright (AJ) and great-grandmother of Jackson Redford. Her parents were Mary and Art McAteer. She was predeceased by her siblings Marion Berney, Stuart McAteer and Andrea Branton. She will be fondly remembered by her sister-in-law, Marjorie Mitchell and her family, Gary (Jill), Sharon and Julie (Dave) Mitchell, her niece, Margo Smith, her friends, and other relatives. Connie was a faithful, longtime member of Bloordale United Church in Etobicoke.

My heart aches to hear this sad news of the passing of my Dear Aunt Connie. I will miss our chats and emails that became so very important during this ongoing pandemic. My deepest condolences to Murray (Jackie), Warren (Rita) and to Connie's granddaughters Michele and Allison. Your grandmother was really looking forward to meeting her new little grandson Jackson. My husband Dave found Connie delightful and generous and was glad to have known her. She is now at peace and I will remember her fondly.

I feel very grateful that we were able to visit with Aunt Connie this summer. She was bright and cheerful, despite her pain and discomfort. A display of true grit! We are sad to hear the news of her passing. Sending our love and condolences to the family.

Connie certainly showed us how to dress up and show up. We initially met in the underground parking and became friends shortly after I moved into The Masters in 2010. Connie and I had the opportunity to travel together to Newfoundland with Marg and Jane, and thoroughly enjoyed our adventure. I will always have fond memories of that special time. Connie is a special person who will remain in our hearts.
