Dr. Julia “Julie” Leanne Wright, a beloved member of the Alma, Arkansas community, passed away on May 1, 2024, at the age of 52, surrounded by her loving family. A devoted wife, mother, and educator, Julie will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Her family was her greatest joy, and she will be deeply missed by her husband, children, mother, sister, brothers-in-law, nephews, and nieces.

Julie’s legacy will live on through her family, friends, and the countless lives she touched through her work in education and her community. She will be remembered for her kindness, compassion, and dedication to those she loved and served.

Pallbearers for the funeral service will include Jackson Wright, Kevin Wright, Clayton Wright, Brian Wright, Dr. Jeffrey Wright, Jason Wright, and Judson Parker. Honorary pallbearers will include Tyson Shepherd, Matthew Crosswhite, and Aaron Milford.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Julie Wright Memorial Fund, which will support education and community initiatives in her memory. Arrangements are under the care of Ocker Funeral Home in Alma.
