Elinor Danzberger Wright, 88, went to her heavenly home on July, 24, 2020.

She was born in Wunsiedel, Germany, on April 10, 1932. In 1955 she was set up on a blind date and met the love of her life. She married in 1956 and then moved to the United States of America and started a family.

There was nothing Elinor couldn’t do. From cooking, painting, stained glass, designing, being a campaign manager and advocate for her chosen party. She will always be remembered by her smile, dedication and hard work, ethics as well as adopting young Virginia Military Institute rats to call their house a home.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Thomas Parker Wright; her mother and father; her sister and her son Nicholas J.C. Wright Sr.

Surviving are her children Tom D. Wright (Jennifer), daughter Heidi W. Sheltman (Kevin), daughter Billie Metzler; grandchildren Ian Wright, Nicholas JC Wright Jr. and Jenny Metzler; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A private burial will take place in late July.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The C.O.W. Program in Tom and Elinor Wright’s name at The VMI Foundation, P.O. Box 932, Lexington, VA 24450, Attn. COW Program.
