Obituary for Winifred Bright

Winifred "Winkie" Bright

April 1, 1938 - November, 4 2023

Winifred “Winkie” Bright, age 85, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family. Born on a sunny spring day, April 1, 1938, Winkie's vibrant spirit and infectious laughter brought joy and light to all who knew her.

Winkie will be forever cherished by her devoted husband of 60 years, Marvin Bright, who stood by her through life's many seasons. Together, they cultivated a family and a legacy of love that will endure through the years.

She leaves behind a rich tapestry of memories for her sons, Marvin Bright II (Roanoke, VA) and Mark Bright (Atlanta, GA) who will continue to honor her strength and kindness. Her grandson, Owen Bright, will miss her deeply, yet will carry forward the lessons of compassion and resilience she instilled.

Winkie's life was a testament to the power of love, family, and laughter. She nurtured her family with a generous heart, and her wisdom and spirit will continue to guide them.

A celebration of Winkie’s life will be held at a future date, allowing those she touched to gather and honor her memory.
