Junnie Wright-Kelley

Mrs.. Junnie Wright-Kelley *

Our beloved Junnie Wright-Kelley was born February 25,1928 to the late Guy Boyd and Mary Jane Wright in Buckner, Arkansas. She confessed Christ at an early age and was a member of St. John Baptist Church in Buckner, AR.

Junnie enjoyed watching westerns, NBA games on TV, listening to old gospel songs, and being surrounded by family and friends. She was a woman who loved the Lord. Her joys in life were her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren and overall family. She cared for so many people over the years. She never met a stranger and had a smile that could light up the darkest room. Junnie was a kind person with a great sense of humor and a true gem to all who knew her. She had a heart of gold and a spirit to match. She will be missed by people of all races, ages, and backgrounds and will always be remembered in our hearts.
