Bonnie Newman Wright, 76, of Mooresville, N.C., passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 31, 2023, at her home. She was brought into this world on April 15, 1947, in Iredell County, N.C., to the late Curtis Roy and Elsie McCall Newman.

Bonnie grew up on McCall Street in Cornelius, N.C., where many childhood memories were made. She and her sister Darlene shared many special times with family and friends. Driving her daddy’s old Studebaker in the corn field at home, when she was 15, was one of her early accomplishments. Later in life, she joined the banking community as a teller. Her friendly smile and attention to customers’ needs was always appreciated. She retired in 2005 due to illness.

Bonnie is survived by her loving husband, of nearly 40, Ed; sister, Darlene Newman; daughters, Tracy Beam (Steve) and Kelly W. Bly (Ryan); stepson, Jason Wright (Lori); and grandchildren, Christina, Dean, Josh, Ashley, and Landon.

A very special thanks to Hospice and Palliative Care of Iredell County for the special care that Bonnie received.

The family will have a private memorial service at a later date.

Cavin-Cook Funeral Home and Crematory, Mooresville, is serving the Wright family. Condolences may be sent to the family at
