In Memory of Paula Wright

Paula Bucy Wright passed away Wednesday, April 4, 2018. Mrs. Wright graduated from the University of Oklahoma, and began her career as a cellist with the OC Symphany. She met her husband, Donald Wright, while attending the Rocky Ridge Music Center in Estes Park, CO. She received her masters degree in cello performance at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, and taught at the Texas School for the Blind for 25 years.

She was predeceased by her husband Donald, and their two sons, Donald Peyton Wright and Douglas Covington Wright. A fellowship was created in their names to aid students in completing their graduate work in Archaeology. The Peyton and Douglas Wright Fellowship has supported nineteen students to date.

She will be greatly missed.
