Harriet Wright

We are sad to announce the death of Harriet Ann Wright, 94, of Monte Vista, Colo., on Nov. 25, 2022. Harriet passed away in Del Norte, Colo., surrounded by family after a short illness.

Harriet was born to Frank and Esta Pepper and raised in the San Luis Valley. Harriet was a loving wife to Headlee Wright. She loved the farm, the mountains and her garden.

Earlier in life, she loved to remodel homes, reupholster furniture, and hunt for arrowheads.

She loved to cook and was an avid reader. She loved to sing and was a member of the women’s barbershop quartet called Sweet Adelines.

She played the piano well into her 90s.

However, what we remember most about Harriet was her Christian faith. She was an active member of Valley Church of the Nazarene. Hers was always to love and counsel others in need, especially young married couples. She thought of them as “her kids” and treated them as such. We will miss her.

She is survived by her children, Alan and Kim, her grandchildren, Michelle Ward (Bo), Jacque Pepper (Kelby), Jennifer Wright and Mark Wright, 11 great-grandchildren, three great-great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.

Her funeral will be held at the Valley Church of the Nazarene on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2022, at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Valley Church of the Nazarene in the care of the funeral home office. To express condolences, please visit www.rogersfunerals.com/

Rogers Family Mortuary in Monte Vista is in care of the arrangements.
