Shirley Edean Wright, 82, a longtime resident of Cataldo, Idaho, passed away at home on April 12, 2019, in the arms of her loving and devoted husband, Fred. She was born in Casper, Wyo., to Violet and Harold Aldrich and was the eldest of four children.
She is survived by her brother, James Edward. She was preceded in death by her sister, Linda Ann and Linda’s twin, Larry Dale, who passed away at birth. Shirley leaves behind her husband of 48 years, Fred; three daughters: Sherry Hunt, Katherine Funcheon and Bessie Kreger; two sons, Howard Wright and Jim Wright, as well as several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and her sweet little dog, Bobby.
Shirley owned and operated many businesses throughout her life, including beauty shops at Hauser Lake and Cataldo. During the years that she and Fred had a paint and body shop, she kept the books and could also detail and sand a vehicle when an extra pair of hands was needed.
She enjoyed traveling, camping and exploring new places with Fred by her side. She dearly loved animals and almost always had at least one little dog in her home. Shirley will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved her.
