Vera Wright Obituary, Death – Vera Mae Wright, who is now 93 years old, was born on March 1, 1930, in the state of Alabama, to parents named Wallace Johnson and Magnolia Johnson. Vera was the oldest of her family’s seven kids. On May 6, 2023, Sister Vera passed away calmly at the residence that she shared with her daughter Maggie in Suffolk, Virginia.
Sister Vera skipped a few years of school when she was younger, but she later went back and earned her GED and her driver’s license when she was 58 years old. Sister Vera was fortunate enough to find her true love in the early 1950s, and on December 26, 1957, she wed John W. Wright. Magnolia and Stephanie are the names of the two daughters who were produced from this union. Sister Vera was obediently a member of Christ Temple Church, where she was baptized in the name of Jesus and received the Holy Ghost.
She remained a member of the church until she relocated to Virginia with Maggie. Sister Vera was responsible for a wide variety of responsibilities at Christ Temple Church, including leading the choir, participating in the prayer band, preparing meals, teaching Sunday school, and serving as a missionary. Sister Vera, the Head Usher, was Active in the West Virginia and East Tennessee choirs of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World.
In addition, she read the church announcements every Sunday, concluding each time with “Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14 and 40). Although Sister Vera’s primary occupation was that of a homemaker, she also provided assistance to people in the community. Before she retired, she worked as a greeter at one of the local fast food restaurants, where she would meet everyone with a cheerful hello and offer free advise to coworkers on life and work ethics.
In addition, she would greet everyone with a friendly goodbye. After relocating to Virginia with Maggie, she went to visit Pastor Byron Joyce at Sixth Street Baptist Church. There, the congregation loved her and referred to her as Moma Vera. Sixth Street would bring the services to her whenever she was unable to make it to them in person. Fried chicken, potato salad, corn bread dressing, homemade souse meat, red velvet cake, and carrot cake were just few of the desserts that were famously prepared by Sister Vera.
