Minnie Gladys Wright, long-time resident of Nicoma Park, passed away peacefully in her home on April 2, 2006. Minnie was born on November 18, 1908 in Sweetwater, Oklahoma to W.M. and Eda Miranda Cox. She married her sweetheart, Howard Wright, on November 4, 1928 in Cheyenne, Oklahoma. Minnie and Howard were blessed with four children. They established a home together in Nicoma Park in 1942. Minnie committed her life to her family and fulfilled the scripture of Proverbs 31 depicting a virtuous woman. She looked well to the ways of her household. Her children rise up and call her blessed. Minnie was an active member of The Church of the Firstborn for nearly 74 years.
