Obituary of Rita Rebecca Wright

Rita Rebecca (McCaslin) Wright went to be with the Lord on October 01, 2019. She was born to Nova and Grace McCaslin in Hillsboro, Illinois on September 29, 1945.


Rita spent the majority of her life in Leland, Illinois. She married her true love, Daniel Timothy Wright on November 24, 1962. She worked many years in her brother, Louis’s bakery, McCaslin Bakery, in Sandwich, IL, and retired from Oak Grisby, in Sugar Grove, IL. They traveled to Lake Havasu City as "snowbirds" for two years before deciding to settle here in 1999. Rita loved to laugh. She loved her family, and treasured her friendships. But, most of all, she loved God and served him with all her heart. She was a generous and giving saint of God. She touched many lives both personally and Spiritually. Her prayers reached the Throne Room of Heaven for many a lost loved one. When she passed on into the arms of Jesus, she went peacefully with loved ones around her.
