CLIFTON PARK Mary Wright, 38, formerly from Waterford, passed away suddenly at Albany Medical Center on November 17, 2019. Mary is the daughter of Patricia and John (Jack) Wright. Following her education with Waterford-Halfmoon School and the Warren-Washington-Hamiliton-Essex Boces. Mary participated in the program of Center for Disability Services at 700 South Pearl St. Albany and later she attended Saratoga Bridges in Clifton Park. She was a communicant of St Mary of the Assumption in Waterford.

Mary’s greatest gift to the world was her contagious joie de vivre and her ability to make others feel good. Her sense of humor and giggle endeared her to friends, family, staff and even strangers and her interactions often left folks feeling happy to have been with her.

Mary especially enjoyed looking pretty and being with pretty people. Her bright blue eyes and facial expressions communicated volumes. It was rare that Mary would go out and not have someone from her past come up to her to say hello.

Mary traveled to Texas, North Carolina, Maryland, Washington DC and Ohio to participate at the Families for Hope and National Institutes for Health family conferences on holoprosencephaly. She had vacationed Pennsylvania, Florida, Canada, Maine, Massachusetts as well as various places in New York State.

Mary was a Wish Angel for the Make A Wish Foundation. She participated in a fashion shoot for the Center for Disabilities newsletter. Mary had participated in a research study by the National Institutes of Health on adults with holoprosencephaly and was one of the oldest known living adults with the diagnosis.

Mary is survived by her brothers John (Molly) Wright, Thomas (Rachel) Wright and Robert Wright as well as her nephews Charles and John Wright, niece Ella Wright and her friends and staff at Primer Court.

It is with deep sadness that we offer our sincerest condolences to Pat, Robert and your entire family. Mary has been, for 18 years, an inspiration to our family. With Michael just 5 years younger, she gave us HoPE!
May the Lord bless you with peace and comfort at this most difficult time. You are and will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Bob, Vicky, & Michael Vandervort
