Alice C. (Holsten) Wright passed away peacefully on May 24, 2013, shortly before her 92nd birthday.
Alice was born at home in Roth, North Dakota, August 10, 1921, and grew up on a farm where she learned her life values and work ethic. After school Alice indulged in a bit of wanderlust, first traveling to Kansas City and later to Seattle with girlfriends to work.

In Seattle Alice worked for Boeing on America’s war effort. It was on a downtown street corner in Seattle where she met a GI asking directions, who later become her husband of 56 years. Charles (Chuck) Wright and Alice were married in 1944 before he shipped out to the Pacific front. Chuck and Alice decided to make Seattle home after the war and began a family with the birth of a son and daughter. Later they moved to Woodinville, which they called home for 50+ years.

After raising the children, Alice became a postal clerk at the Woodinville Post Office where she watched the area grow and made many friends in the community. Later in life Alice enjoyed travel throughout the west with Chuck. She loved baking and cooking, and her wonderful cinnamon rolls and fruit pies were always a hit with family and friends. Alice was preceded in death by Chuck and is survived by daughter, Joyce Wright; son, Donald Wright (Christina) and grandsons, Justin Wright (Soleil), Christopher Wright (Alissa) and Devin Wright. At her request, no services will be held. She will be missed.
