Grace E. Wright, 92, passed away on August 3, 2022 at Delhi Rehabilitation & Nursing Center. She was born July 20, 1930 in Walton, NY to the late Charles and Eva (Conklin) Hoyt.

On October 21, 1951, she was married to James M. Wright in Sidney Center, sharing over 70 years of marriage before he predeceased her earlier this year. She worked as a bench hand at Borden Chemical Company from 1972 until her retirement in 1992.
