Obituary

Nona McClellan Wright passed away peacefully at her home in San Mateo on Saturday, January 18, 2020. Born on December 25, 1930, she celebrated her 89th birthday on Christmas day. She was born in Sarasota, Florida, raised in San Mateo and moved to Miami after her marriage where she reared her family. After her husband, Jack, retired in 1987 they returned to San Mateo.
Known as “Mother”, “Grandma” and “Greatmama”, she was the mother of 9 children: Sherry Herrington (Bill), Bruce Wright (Suzanne), Jamie Wright (Ruth), Jack Wright (Penny), Ann Tilton (J.J.), Bobby Wright (Jill), Alan Wright (Annie), Paul Wright (Megan) and Marissa Alexander (Toby). She has 45 grandchildren, 82 great-grandchildren and 9 great-great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Jack Turner Wright and her parents, William and Lillian (Ricks) McClellan, 3 brothers, Ray, Bobby and Billy McClellan and a sister, Jeannie McClellan Wright. She is survived by a sister, Betty McClellan Adams (Willie) and 2 sisters-in-law, Carla McCollough (Robert) and Nadyne McClellan.
She was an avid genealogist and family historian, compiling several books of stories on her ancestors and leaving innumerable valuable records for her posterity.
She was also an expert and prolific quilter. She has made hundreds of quilts of which her children, grandchildren and many of her great-grandchildren are the recipients. That does not count the dozens of family and friends who have received one of her beautiful quilts.
She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, having joined the church when she was 18 and remained faithful all the days of her life. She served in various callings in Primary, Young Women and Relief Society and at the time of her death she was serving as the Ward Pianist. In earlier years she was called upon to sing at many meetings, weddings and funerals sharing her beautiful soprano voice. In high school she sang here in Palatka as part of a trio which sang on the radio.
An elect and exemplary woman, she leaves behind a legacy few of us as her family will ever surpass and her love, compassion, wisdom and testimony of the Savior will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Palatka with Bishop Michael Curtis conducting and President Adam Herrington presiding. Burial will follow in San Mateo Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm on Friday, January 24, 2020 at Johnson-Overturf Chapel in Palatka.
Memories and condolences may be expressed to the family at Nona’s Book of Memories page at www.johnsonoverturffunerals.com .
