Stephanie M. Wright, 26, of Decatur, Indiana passed away unexpectedly Wednesday morning, February 24, 2021, at Adams Memorial Hospital in Decatur.
She was born on June 17, 1994, in Buffalo, New York to John Paul Wright and Sandra (Oddy) Fadel.
Stephanie worked as a server at Wings Etc. in Decatur and the staff had become a second family to her.
Family was something that she held near and dear to her heart. Her younger cousins gave her the name “Betsy” and the nickname has stuck with her to this day. She had an infectious laugh that could be heard from miles away. Stephanie had a huge heart not only for other people but also for animals…any size, shape, or kind. Having roots in New York she had unwavering support for the Buffalo Bills.
She is survived by her mother, Sandra Fadel of Fort Wayne, Indiana; father, John Paul Wright of Amherst, New York; three sisters, Savannah Fadel of Fort Wayne, Saharrah Fadel of Fort Wayne, and Meghan Wright of Amherst, New York; two brothers, Cameron Wright of Amherst, New York and Ian Wright of Amherst, New York; maternal grandparents, Paul & Robin Bogart of Tonawanda, New York; paternal grandmother, Laura Cunningham-Wright of Amherst, New York; aunt, Tracy (Brian) Shaffer of Decatur, Indiana; aunt, Melissa (Robert Hammer) Oddy of Tonawanda, New York; uncle, Brian (Amy) Oddy of Amherst, New York; uncle, Paul Oddy of Buffalo, New York; aunt, Kristy (Kyle) Love of Nashville, Tennessee; and cousins, Grayson Shaffer, Gracie Shaffer, Brooklyn Hammer, Harlyn Hammer, Brian Oddy Jr., Paul Oddy Jr., Cadence Oddy, and Joe Oddy.
She was preceded in death by her maternal great grandparents, Beatrice and Joseph Oddy.
