Monroe Twp. – Dorothy Ann Wright, 81, passed away on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 at University Medical Center of Princeton. Dorothy was born in Astoria, Queens, NY to the late Joseph and Marion Conforti and was raised in Astoria before moving to Bridgewater, NJ in 1963. After raising her children there she went on to spend many years in Tulsa, Oklahoma followed by Bradenton, Florida. Since 2019 she has resided in Monroe Twp. Dorothy was employed for many years for L’oreal Cosmetics in Edison, NJ before retiring in 1986 as a product control supervisor. Dorothy was a deeply devoted Christian who found her greatest joy in sharing God’s love be it in her prayer group, bible study, or Methodist church choir. Her favorite mission field was the Walmart, where she would often be found by friends holding the hand of someone in need of prayer. She loved listening to music, watching sports, and most of all telling a great joke. She will be sadly missed by family and friends especially her grandchildren, whom she cherished.
Dorothy is predeceased by her loving husband, William T. Wright, and brother, James Conforti.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory her daughter and son-in-law, Kathy and Michael Bichsel; her son John Fleurant and her son and daughter in-law Steven and Lori Fleurant; and her grandchildren, Alexa Bichsel, Max Bichsel, Johnathan Fleurant, Danielle Fleurant, Jaclyn Fleurant, Steven Fleurant, Spencer Fleurant and Sierra Fleurant.
