Tanya Kay Wright

November 3, 1946 — January 9, 2023

On the morning of Monday, January 9, 2023, our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, passed away at the age of 76.

Tanya was born on November 3, 1946 in the Bronx, NY to the late John and Margaret Johnson Filetti. She retired with many fulfilling years as an emergency room nurse at Houston Healthcare and was a longtime, faithful member of First Baptist Church of Centerville. There, Tanya enjoyed being a part of the Doris Grey Sunday School Class and fellowshipping with her church family. In her free time, you could find her cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs (GO DAWGS!), gardening her flowers, and reading.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Bobby Frank Wright; her son, Stephen Scott Wright; and her brother and sister-in-law, Butch and Judy Filetti.

She is survived by her loving son, Dr. John Wright (Holly) of Valdosta, GA; grandchildren, Savanna Aldridge (Jay) of Aston, PA, Austin Wright of Perry, GA and Noah and Hogan Wright, both of Valdosta, GA; great-grandchildren, Adriana and JJ Aldridge; sister, Sandra Riner (Wayne) of Eidson, TN; and several beloved nieces and nephews.
