Gale E. Wright

Gale Easterling Wright passed from this life peacefully surrounded by family on March 29, 2022, to head to her eternal home with the Lord. She was born on October 13, 1937, in Montgomery, AL, to Clara and Guy Easterling, raised in Cordele, GA, attended Florida College and lived in Panama City Beach, FL for the past 60 years.
Gale spent her entire life in service to God and others. She was loved tremendously by all those that knew her. Her example, influence and impact on lives will be realized for generations to come. She was a faithful member of the Panama City Church of Christ for many years.

Gale is survived by her two children, Richard (Elise) Wright and Randall (Robin) Wright; her 5 grandchildren Mandy (Tom) Cunningham, Rick Wright, Heather (Trevor) Acklin, Chase (Brandy) Wright and Randy Wright Jr.; her 3 step-grandchildren Lindsey (Chad) Wallis, Erin (Rob) Lastra, Allison (Patrick) Kerrigan, Hunter Church, Jake Williams and their 8 children; and her 8 great-grandchildren Tommy (Hannah) Cunningham, Andrew Merritt, Dylan Cunningham, Adyson Wright, Charlie Poynor, Graham Wright, Miles Wright and Garrett Acklin,  as well as many other close family members and dear friends.

From the incorporation of the City of Panama City Beach in 1970 until July of 2007, she was the Executive Assistant to the Mayor and City Manager as well as the Assistant City Clerk for many of those years. She loved her job, her co-workers and the many people she was able to meet over her years of service to the city.
Her Celebration of Life will be on April 9, 2022 at Kent Forest Lawn Funeral Home. The family will receive friends beginning at 1 PM and the service will begin at 2 PM. 

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to Sacred Selections, an organization with the mission to financially assist Christian couples whose hearts and homes are open to loving and raising a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Thousands have supported Sacred Selections over the years as a way to “care for the fatherless” through the process of adoption. These supporters see their donations as an investment in “Kingdom work”, fulfilling James 1:27, individually giving, caring for the fatherless through adoption.
