Marguerite (Margie) Ellen Wright, born in San Pedro, Calif., to James and Ruth McKerlie, passed away peacefully on January 20, 2014, at the age of 88. Marguerite worked for Northrup and was part of a large team of fellow workers at TRW in putting the first man on the moon.
Marguerite’s husband John preceded her in death as did her parents, two brothers and two sisters. She is survived by a blended family of five children, Gerald Wright, Richard Wright, Sandra Colgan, James Wright, Linda Morgan, and their spouses; 18 grandchildren; 39 great-grandchildren and 19 great-great-grandchildren.
Marguerite was a truly beautiful, loving person who loved her family very much. She enjoyed her many friends, her church, traveling, creating gorgeous stain-glass projects, gardening, telling stories of her past and present and going to Fallbrook Senior Care. We will all miss her beautiful smile.
Marguerite’s last wishes were simple: “Please love your family and friends, as they are a gift from God.”
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marguerite’s name to the Foundation for Senior Care, c/o Teddie Borges, 320 W. Alvarado, Fallbrook, Calif. 92028. Services will be Saturday, February 22, 2014, 9 a.m., North Coast Church, 2405 N. Santa Fe Ave., Vista.
