Dorothy Sedgwick Wright

Obituary Services will be at 2:30 PM, Wednesday, December 30, 2020 at First Baptist Church Dorothy Louise Sedgwick-Wright was born in Forney, Tx on January 19, 1932 and departed to spend eternity with her Lord and Savior December 22, 2020. The oldest of three girls, the family moved often because her father worked for the government. At a young age her father was disabled and Dorothy went to work in helping her mother support her younger sisters. Dorothy met the first love of her life, Dale Sedgwick, at Woolsworth in Dallas, TX. They married in 1951 and moved to California returning to Dallas a short time later before making Carlsbad, NM their home in early 1960s. She worked many years beside Dale in the Photograph Studio taking care of all aspects of the business. Dorothy became a Real estate Broker because she wanted to be her own boss. She held a reputation of excellence in the real estate field and many bankers enjoyed working with her because of her attention to detail. In retirement, Dorothy took care of Dale for years as he declined with Alzheimers disease until his death in 2007. Dorothy met the second love of her life, Charles Wright in Alzheimers meetings they attended in learning how to cope with their spouses disease processes. Dorothy and Charles married September 19, 2011 at First Baptist Church Carlsbad, NM. They enjoyed just being together and could often be seen walking hand and hand through the aisle of Albertsons. In recent years they became more confined to home and enjoyed watching Dr Phill and Church services on TV as Molly, their faithful furry person, sat close by. Dorothys eyes would sparkle at the mention of Charles name and she called him her gem. Dorothy was an active member of First Baptist Church serving in many different areas and was also a long-term member of The Ladies Auxiliary. She was a devoted mother valuing her family and honoring God by making sure they had a personal relationship with Him. Dorothy was preceded in death by her father, Otis Ayers; mother, Roxie Ayer; first husband, Dale Sedgwick; sons: Gary Sedgwick, Mike Wright, and Doug Wright.; granddaughters, Hailey Hartman and Mia Munoz Sanchez; and Dorothy is survived by her husband, Charles Wright of Carlsbad, NM; daughter, Vickie Cox and husband, Rodger of Carlsbad, NM; daughter, Laura Munoz and husband, Ruben of Carlsbad, NM; daughter, Jennifer Wright and husband, Rick of Denver, CO; five grandchildren: Jason Sedgwick and wife, Amanda of Carlsbad, NM, Brandon Cox and wife, Irene of Seminole, TX, and John Anthony Hensley of San Antonio, TX; Amanda Hartman, and Savannah Munoz; three great-grandchildren: Ashley Sedgwick, Kora Cox, Bran Hartman, and; one great-great-grandchild, Jaselynn Sedgwick McWilliams.
