Darlene E. Wright

Darlene E. Wright, 60, of Saranac Lake, died on July 14, 2021, in her home in Saranac Lake under the care of her husband, Craig Wright, and High Peaks Hospice.

Born in Saranac Lake on Sept. 12, 1960, Darlene was the daughter of Raymond (predeceased on Feb. 15, 2009) and Elaine (predeceased on July 3, 2021) Begor. She would then go on to live her entire life in the Adirondacks.

It is in Vermontville where she married Craig in 1979 and raised her four children: Heather (Mike) Whitney, Shannon (Matt) Lasher, Justin (Kelly) Wright, and Samantha Wright.

Being a lifelong resident of the area, Darlene loved to spend her time active in nature. Throughout her life, she would often be found with her husband hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking/canoeing and camping. She also loved working in her flower gardens and nurturing her plants all while her beloved music played.

The only thing she loved more than spending time in the nature of her mountains was spending time with her eight grandchildren, and they loved spending time with their “Grandma Dar.”

Funeral arrangements are in care of the Fortune-Keough Funeral Home, 20 Church St., Saranac Lake.

At Darlene’s request, there will be no calling hours, funeral or memorial service.

Memorial contributions may be made to High Peaks Hospice or Adirondack Medical Center Oncology in care of the Fortune-Keough Funeral Home.
