Norma was born June 8, 1952, in Richmond, VA to the late Elwood “Boots” and Sarah Ruth Crabtree Roles. She was the cornerstone of Wright Paving and Custom Stone and she cared deeply for her work family. Norma had a knack for decorating, she enjoyed arranging flowers, and wrapping and giving beautiful gifts. Cooking was another pleasure, and she was known for her grit casserole and homemade pizza. Norma was dedicated to her family. She spent countless hours involved in 4-H with her boys and went to many ballgames and activities to support her grandchildren. Always happy, she loved to share her humor and infectious laugh with all of those around her. Norma had a strong, feisty spirit throughout her life, yet she cared for others in the most humble and selfless way. She gave her family the best example of what true love is all about. Norma passed away March 29, 2023, at Lynchburg Nursing Center, surrounded by her family.
Survivors include her devoted and caring husband of 54 years, Tommy Wright; sons, Grad Wright and his wife Patty, and Will Wright; grandchildren, Grady (Courtney) Wright, Eli Wright, and Libby Wright; brother, Ernie (Brenda) Roles; sister, Tammy (Curtis) Painter; several nieces, nephews, extended family members, and the Wright Paving Family; her dog, Tinker, and her grand-dog, Dudley Do Right. Norma was preceded in death by her parents, Boots and Ruth Roles.
