A small group of masked Sun Lakers celebrated the life of Caroline Wright on the SCH patio last week.

Wright, a long-time Sun Lakes resident and tireless volunteer on advisory committees and in clubs, passed away last month.

Friends brought flowers, pictures, and shared anecdotes about Wright’s colorful life — selling hot dogs and popcorn on the pier in Atlantic City; cooking for gold miners in Alaska; working for the Colton School District; owning a bakery, picture framing company, and waterbed company; volunteering more than 2000 hours at San Gorgonio Hospital.

As the sun set, Charlene Fink let go a solitary pink balloon in Wright’s honor.

As they watched it float away, friends said their heartfelt goodbyes to a phenomenal woman, Sweet Caroline Wright.
