Janet Marion Wright (Glasner), 81, passed away peacefully in her sleep on February 12, 2021. She was born in Hackensack, NJ on August 10, 1939, to Kenneth and Marion Glasner. Her family moved to Chenango County when she was 6. She graduated from Sidney High School in 1957, married David E. Wright of Unadilla in 1960, and served as a military wife for many years.

She was also actively involved in the local United Way, community theater, the Garden Club, and is a member of the Beta Sigma Phi International Senior Sorority.

Wright (Julie) of Lithia FL., her sister Carole Baker (Bud), her sister in law Linda Glasner, her grandchildren: Benjamin, Christopher, Jocelyn, Halle, Catherine, Rachel, Luke, and Zoe, her aunts Jeanne Batchelar, Jane Glasner, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins, and her ex-husband David.
