Sarah Wright

February 20, 2022


Sarah Wright was born on January 15, 1930, in Marion, Alabama to the union of the late Oliver Jackson and Anna Moore Jackson. She confessed hope in Christ at an early age and joined the Hopewell Baptist Church where she remained a member until her death. She departed her earthly home on Sunday, February 20th, 2022 at Perry County Rehabilitation. On January 16, 1949, she married the love of her life, Rev. Jerry Wright. To this union, eight children were born. When her husband was called into the  ministry and became a Pastor, she traveled with him to and from the different churches until he was called home to glory on March 1, 2001. 


Sarah loved cracking jokes making people laugh and smile. She loved going to the Hopewell District Sunday School Conventions as well as the Hopewell District Association.  The Alabama State  Sunday School and Women's Convention. She taught her children how to farm so we would have fresh garden food to eat. Her love for flowers, quilting and sewing, cooking, canning, and baking will forever be in our hearts.
