Becky Louann Wright passed away on the afternoon of December 14, 2021, at the St. Michael Medical Center in Silverdale, from complications stemming from small cell lung cancer. She was 70 years old, peaceful, and surrounded by loved ones.
Born in August of 1951 to Martha and Ralph Rossell, Becky spent her childhood and formative years on
Bainbridge Island with her siblings Tommy, Jeanne and Tricia. After graduating in 1969 from Bainbridge
High School, she fled to California before returning to the Seattle area in the early 70’s to reestablish her
roots. On July 23, 1978, Becky and Michael went to see Star Wars at the Big Bear Drive-In; they were
engaged three days later and married on November 11 of that same year at Seabold church on
Bainbridge Island. They remained married up to the day she passed, 43 years, and have two children,
Emily and Mathew, who love and miss her so, so much.
Everything Becky did she did with strength, dedication, and pride. For thirteen years she was the CFO for
MOWCO Corporation. When that company sold in 2000, Becky took a few years for herself before
dedicating her energy to HMS Pacific Navigation, a vessel management company located on Bainbridge,
for nearly fifteen years. Those who met Becky adored her. She was gentle, understanding, reserved, and
had the best smile. Becky is pre-deceased by her mother, Marty, who was a model for what a great
mom can be; she is survived by her three siblings, her husband and two kids, and her three
grandchildren, Carroll, Frances and Ruby, who were robbed of her too soon but will forever be shaped
by her kindness, strength and love.
If you would like to honor the life of Becky, we will be hosting a celebratory service in early spring, and details will be posted on the tribute site as soon as available. In lieu of sending flowers, please consider donating to PAWS, the Humane Society, or the World Wildlife Fund in her honor.
