Lorn and Dolores were married in Lebanon, Ore., on July 28, 1968. They lived in Tillamook, Ore., until 1971, when they moved to Albany, Ore. They lived there for 42 years before moving to Somerset Lodge in Gladstone, Ore., in 2008.
Dolores was a public health nurse for Linn County for 25 years. She graduated from Walla Walla University with a degree in nursing in 1961. Lorn worked in the lumber industry holding a variety of jobs. In 1989 he decided to open up an adult foster care home, which they operated until 1993.
The Wrights raised three wonderful sons who have made them proud. They are all married and have families of their own now: Thomas and Julie Wright of Redding, Calif.; Robert and Denise Wright of Peoria, Ariz.; Larry and Tymi Wright of Ridgefield, Wash.; 10 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, with another great-grandchild set to arrive in June.
They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at Somerset Lodge on July 28, 2018, with family and friends. And then on Oct. 7, 2018, Larry and Tymi planned a big celebration at Gladstone Park Church for them, with many friend and family attending. The Wrights feel very loved and blessed and have had a great life together. They look forward to our Lord’s soon return to take them home with Him to live in a perfect world forever.
