She is predeceased by a sister, Patricia Wickham and a brother, Paul Blanchard. Born in Caraquet, New Brunswick, Canada September 3, 1920, to the late Bruno and Lauza (Dugas) Blanchard. Terry emigrated to the U.S. at a very young age and became a naturalized citizen. The family settled in Derry, NH where she graduated from Pinkerton Academy in 1939. Soon after, Terry moved to Athol to live with an aunt and to work in the area. There she met her “one true love” Earl “Bill” Wright and they were married in 1946. They moved to Northampton for 18 years and then Auburn where she has lived for over 50 years. She was a member of St. Joseph’s Church of Auburn for that many years as well. Bill and Terry had a long and wonderful life together. She was a typical 50’s mom and stayed home to bring up us kids and help create wonderful childhood memories. After Bill retired, they traveled around the U.S. and Europe and have 100’s of pictures to show for it. For herself, Terry took up some night classes in woodworking, cake decorating, sewing and stained glass. She also loved to read, do crossword puzzles, Sudoku, play cards and bake. Once they moved to Auburn, Terry join a bowling league at the old Thunderbird Bowl and bowled for many years. Terry was a great wife, partner, mother and friend. She was the foundation of the family because family was important to her and her children and their families were her pride and joy. We wish you Godspeed, Mom, with all the love and prayers we hold in our hearts and a tearful goodbye for now. Dad is waiting for you to take your hand and bring you back to his side.
