Della Jane Wright, age 87 of Ames, Iowa, passed away peacefully at her home with loved ones beside her on the farm in which she was born, on November 16, 2021.
She was born to Clarence Riggs and Julia Opal (Long). She married Wallace Wright, Jr., on May 27, 1955, at the Napier Methodist Church. To that union two sons were born.
Della was a member of the Napier Methodist Church and Women's Society, and P.E.O. she graduated from Napier School. She worked at the agronomy department at ISU, and for many years at the seed Lab in Napier, from where she retired.
Della had a servant's heart. She volunteered at her church, the Madrid Home, and many other places. She enjoyed quilting, sewing, knitting, gardening, and putting puzzles together. She was a big John Wayne fan.
Della is survived by her husband, Wallace of Ames, IA, sons, Kenneth Lee Wright (Gudula) of Boone, IA, William Robert Wright (Irene Howard) of Fairfield, CA, and one granddaughter, Cindy Jane Hickle (Brandon) of Boone, IA.

I have good memories of going to the Wright's home as a kid and Della was always friendly and welcoming. It's important to have people like Della Wright in your life when you're growing up.
So sorry to hear of Della's passing---she was great fun when she was part of morning water aerobics class at the Racquet Club and coffee on occasions. Prayers to her family---know she will be missed.
What a loving family! She is leaving a huge hole for all of them; share those good memories with each other and keep her spirit close to you...I am so glad I got to know all of you...God bless..Linda Davis, HyVee
