She was preceded in death by her husband, Jordon Wright of 44 years. Marie was baptized at an early age at Spirit Creek Baptist Church, Augusta, GA. Later in life she joined Tabernacle Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev Charles Spencer Hamilton.

Marie also worked diligently with her hands; gardening, sewing and cooking delicious meals for her family and friends which were some of her favorite things to do. Marie lived her life with enthusiasm and exuberance. She moved through life with grace and charisma with an amazing capacity to love and give to others. She was known for her exquisite taste; her suits, hats, shoes and jewelry always made a statement. She never left a room until she shared a hug and a smile.
