Margaret Susan (Smith) Wright

December 2, 1942 ~ August 16, 2021 (age 78)


Margaret (Midge, Midgie, Dee) Susan (Smith) Wright, age 78 of Middleboro, MA, wife of Paul A. Wright, Sr. for 55 years, passed away peacefully with family and friends by her side on Monday August 16, 2021 at St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford, MA. Born on Wednesday December 2, 1942 in Boston, MA, she was the daughter of the late William and Margaret (Gunn) Smith. A 1960 graduate of Stoughton High School, Midge and Paul married on September 19, 1965. They lived in Stoughton until 1973 before moving the family to Middleboro, MA. After raising her three boys to school age, Midge became a food service supervisor and worked in various places around Middleboro including Oak Hill and Alph Village Nursing Homes. Midge was active in Boy Scouting, serving as den mother and “wife of the scout master” - one of the most demanding roles in Scouting. Later, Midge enjoyed volunteering at the Central Methodist Church in Middleboro, MA. Midge enjoyed cooking for her family, visiting friends and relatives, spending time with her grandchildren, and her many soap operas. Midge was the heart of the family; her quick humor and loving strength made our house a home for not only our family but many dear friends and neighbors. Every greeting from Midge was heartfelt, and every parting included a hug, an “I love you”, and a warning to “be good!” and “drive safe!”……Rest in Peace Mom, we love you, and we’ll be good, don’t worry! In addition to her husband Paul, Midge is survived by her sons, Paul Wright, Jr. and his wife Kathleen of Marquette, MI, Dean Wright and his partner Kristal of Lakeville, and Eric Wright of Worland, WY, grandchildren, Ben, Bethany, Christian, and Amelia, sisters, Sandra, Susan, Lu-Anne, and her brother William, along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews. Memorial visitation for Midge will be held on Sunday September 12, 2021 from 3:00 - 6:00PM at Dahlborg-MacNevin Funeral Home 280 Bedford Street Lakeville, MA 02347. A reception will be held following visitation at the Middleboro Elk’s Lodge 24 High Street Middleboro, MA 02346. A graveside service will be held on Monday September 13, 2021, at 11:15AM at the Massachusetts National Cemetery, Connery Avenue Bourne, MA.
