Aurora Shelby Ann Wright

Aurora Shelby Ann Wright, 18, of Castlegar B.C., died suddenly Saturday, April 20th 2013 due to injuries sustained in a fatal car accident.

Aurora Shelby Ann Wright was born December 15, 1994, in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Aurora graduated from Stanley Humphries Secondary School in May of 2012. While in school Aurora kept busy working 3 part time jobs. Her full time employment at Castlegar Hyundai began last August. Aurora loved her work and was promoted to head of her department in a few short months. It was at Hyundai that Aurora’s passion for cars began to develop. Aurora had many interests and hobbies but her favorites were driving, dirt biking and soaking up the sun. She was adventurous and lived life to the fullest. She was well loved by all who worked and played by her side. Quick to laugh and brighten the day she was aptly named Aurora after the dawn.

She is survived by her parents, Adia and Skye Wright; her brothers, Owen, Jessie, Noah and Bo and her sister Roja; Grandma, Lisa Dejong; Grandpa, Terry Dejong and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

She is preceded in death by her grandparents, James and Lillian Wright.

Aurora’s genuine laughter and generous spirit will be deeply missed by all who knew her. She shone bright like the dawn and will always be very much loved.

A funeral service was held Saturday April 27, 2013 at the New Life Pentecostal Assembly in Castlegar BC, after which her casket was taken to her final resting place on a specially built platform on her father’s motorcycle’s sidecar. She was buried at Park Memorial Cemetery where a white dove was released at her graveside to symbolize her soul’s ascension into God’s kingdom.

Sarah Greenwood of Castlegar Funeral Chapel has

been entrusted with arrangements.
