Anita Wright Obituary, Death – On Thursday, April 27, 2023, Anita Jean Acree Wright, 66, of Carrollton, Georgia, lost her courageous battle with breast cancer.
She was born on November 11, 1956, to John and Helen Acree, in Carrollton, Georgia. She spent her childhood going on adventures with her brother and favorite cousins, reading, writing poems, riding horses, and getting into mischief.
At Central High, where Anita was a student, she was a member of the marching band. Her family thought she was the most stunning Central Band Program drum major ever.
From the time she received her diploma in 1974 until she became a Special Education teacher in 2004, she worked as a machinist, a dental assistant, and a stay-at-home mom.
She had tenacity, intelligence, wit, and the drive to make a difference in the classroom. She attended Tyus Baptist Church, where she sang in the chorus and made it her mission to make her fellow congregants feel important. She provided a loving, accepting, and fun environment for her twelve grandkids.
Anita was a brave fighter who put the needs of others above her own. After receiving her diagnosis, she fought bravely to make the most of the time God provided.
She fought hard for the early discovery of breast cancer on behalf of her loved ones, including her children, during her nearly four-year ordeal. Many of her comrades in arms were motivated by her uncanny ability to find humor even in the darkest of times and her infectious spirit of optimism and joy.
