Della Mae Wright

March 28, 1932 ~ October 13, 2021 (age 89)


Della Mae Wright, LOVED children, and people and yard sales.

Della was born March 28th 1932, in Whittier, California, to Arthur and Della Hummer. She arrived in “Glory” her affectionate description of heaven, October 13, 2021.

Della, married Floyd N. Wright on September 10, 1954. They built their homes in Baldwin Park, and San Dimas, California. They had four children, Randy, Ricky, Robby and Dora. Della had a beautiful soprano voice. She sang and traveled with the Audrey Mieir choir. She loved the neighborhood children, and led Good News Clubs, which made a lasting impact on children.

In 1971, to ‘get out of the smog” ,the Wrights moved to Paradise, Ca. Della lived there for 47 years, until the Camp fire destroyed the town, her home, and most of the homes of her extended family. Della could make any house a home, and had an Imagination like Ann of Green Gables. Della loved to shop but was on a tight budget, so garage sales and thrift stores were her go to. The treasures she could find for only 75 cents were truly amazing. She enjoyed camping, making smores and being close to water, always with family and friends. Carlsbad, Pismo beach, Yosemite, the Redwoods, and Brookings were some of her favorite spots. After overcoming her fear to fly, Della learned the pleasures of travel, and her favorite travel was cruising. She shared close to 25 cruises with family and friends. She would brag that she had been on all the dam ships, playfully referring to the Holland America line.

Floyd and Dela had been married for 35 years when he died. In 1994 Della pursued building a mountain home in Lake Almanor, Ca. "All this and Heaven too" was her happy place. Not only for her, but she was quick to share her mountain get away with others. In 2005 Della introduced us to a man named Wolf, who quickly won the hearts of her family. They were married till he passed in 2018.

Della was a friend for anyone needing a friend. She had several rentals in Paradise, but was always more concerned for the renter, than the rent. As the birthday candles started adding up, she learned to use an iPad, and that could be scary. When online shopping, many times one item could be come one case.

Della loved her morning coffee; and watching Glen Beck. She was one to decorate for Christmas early, and loved to watch it snow. She watched her barometer daily, and was a fan of the weather channel. A quick call could result in a weather report in your area.

Della's last address was at the Terrace's in Chico, where she made many new friends. She had eight grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

She was buried next to her husband Floyd Wright at Paradise Cemetery. She Loves Jesus, her Lord and Savior. Because of her faith, "Someday will be a good day:, for those who also believe.
