Lee Ellen Wright-Beveridge

December 8, 1970 - January 1, 2023
Lee Ellen Wright-Beveridge


Lee Ellen Wright-Beveridge of Wilmington, NC was born on December 8, 1970, as the daughter of Johnny Lloyd Wright and the late Judy Woods Wright, and went home to be with her Lord and Savior at the age of 52 on Sunday, January 1, 2023.
She leaves behind to cherish her memories her beloved father Johnny Lloyd Wright of Wilmington, her husband Steven Watson of Wilmington, and her daughter Olivia Watson, as she would say My Olivia, of Wilmington, with a host of other aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Lee loved the Lord and she loved people. She had a smile that could light up a room and desired to see people know Jesus. If Lee knew you, she prayed for you, and if she didn’t, she still prayed for you. It was who she was, a prayer warrior. She was strong and fought for those she loved. Lee noticed the people others passed over and did whatever she could to make someone feel welcome and appreciated. She was living proof that God still does miracles and she believed in them. Her prayer was always for God’s will in her life and in others. She knew God was the one who could turn things around and make them new. Her sweet soft voice could offer a word of encouragement in the toughest of times and her laugh made you laugh along with her.

Lee loved her family, friends, and her church family, The River at Wrightsville Avenue Church of God. She favored the color pink, was a fan of roses, really liked elephants, and had a soft spot for her buddy Sampson, her dog. She was an amazing daughter, wife, mama, and friend. She will be missed greatly by so many but celebrated for the life she lived and is now living in heaven.

As 2 Corinthians 5:8 says, “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” Lee is healed, whole, and free. She would say to love the Lord with all your heart and love others with the love of Jesus.

A visitation and memorial service for family and friends will be held at The River at Wrightsville Ave. Church of God on Saturday January 21, 2023 at 2:00 PM
