July 9, 1923 - May 11, 2022
Irene Kincaid Wright left this earth peacefully on May 11, 2022 to be with her heavenly Father. She was 98 years old. Funeral services will be held on Sunday, May 15, 2022, at 2p.m. at Muir’s Chapel United Methodist Church with internment following in the church cemetery. Irene was born on July 9, 1923, in Lenoir, NC, grew up in nearby Sugar Grove and became a lifelong resident of Greensboro NC near the end of WWII. She was a long-time, faithful member of Muir’s Chapel UMC where she married the love of her life, Julian L. Wright, on August 13, 1948. Julian and Irene were married for 61 fairytale years before he proceeded her in death in 2009. She was also proceeded in death by her parents Marshall Wilfong and Annie Clay Kincaid, siblings, Howard Kincaid, Mariam Lawrence, Elizabeth Conrad, Joyce Inman and three siblings lost in childhood, Charlotte, Harold, and Willis Kincaid. She is survived by her four children who loved her so much, Susan Wright, Bruce Wright, Sandra Herndon (Phil), and Martha Hill (John). Irene loved life, loved to travel, and more than anything loved her family!! In addition to being a loving wife and mother, she absolutely adored her ten grandchildren, Amy, Andy (KG), Ted, Carl, Amanda (Reade), Andrew, Nick (Courtney), Logan (Tiffany), Noah, and Julian. She was blessed to meet eight great grandchildren in her 98 years, Ethan, Ty, McKenna, Jack, Jules, Trevor, Olivia, and Tyler. She was a loving Aunt to countless nieces and nephews. Irene had a wonderful life filled with several different occupations, ranging from being one of the actual “Rosie the Riveters” during WWII in a defense plant in Detroit, MI, a secretary at ORD (The Overseas Replacement Depot) in Greensboro near the end of the war, Sears Mail Order, co-owner with her husband of their company The Wright Rack, as well as waitressing on and off for several years for Libby Hill Seafood Restaurants. She taught us so much…. how to love, live, give, play, and enjoy every minute of God’s gift of life through her examples. She will be painfully missed until we are reunited again in heaven. What a glorious day that will be! The family will honor their mother’s wishes, as they did with their father’s, … that no family members attend her reception, which will be held at Forbis and Dick Funeral Home on Friendly Ave. on Saturday, May 14, 2022, from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m. The family will be available to greet relatives and friends prior to her service at Muir’s Chapel from 12:30 until 1:45p.m. on Sunday. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to Muir’s Chapel UMC or Hospice (Authorcare) of Greensboro, NC.
