Susan (Emery) Williams Wright, of College Station, passed away Thursday, April 3, 2014. Her husband of 48 years, George, was at her side.
Susan was born in Hartford, Connecticut and moved to Texas with her husband and eighteen month old daughter, Laurel in 1970. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center Houston in 1977, and worked in various nursing positions in the Houston-Galveston area. After moving to the Brazos Valley in 1983, she worked as the Public Health Nurse for Grimes County for almost fifteen years. During her service with Texas Department of Health, she completed her Nurse Practitioner education at Texas Woman’s University. She subsequently was certified as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and worked in that role with Texas Department of Health. After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, she continued her work with children by working with the Scott & White MOMS program in College Station.
Susan loved working with children. Her daughters and five grandchildren were her pride and joy, especially her only granddaughter, three-month-old Ingrid Lyon, of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
