Wright’s family tree includes her 10 children plus another two children she took in to raise, 28 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren and 20 great-great grandchildren.
The family gatherings have recently been hindered by the pandemic. In all her years, the spread of coronavirus has been like none she has seen.
“I never heard talk of nothing like what’s going on now, never,” Wright said.
In her 100 years, Wright had her own hopes about the White House. She believes she’s one reason Barak Obama became president.
“Truly, this is no lie. I had really prayed for there to be a black president. It wasn’t really too long before they elected him,” Wright said.
Now her prayers are for the country’s first Black elected to serve as vice-president, Kamala Harris.
“I am proud that he asked her to be his vice president,” Wright said.
Congressman Andre Carson (D-Indiana) recognized Wright’s long life with a proclamation he signed and mailed to the family.
Wright is also part of the “Smucker’s 100” which airs on NBC’s TODAY Show.
Age isn’t always top of mind for Wright.
“Sometimes, I don’t even think about 100, I feel so good, Thank God,” Wright said.
Wright said she just wants to continue to be blessed with good health and surrounding by family.
