Lara Wright, 46, of Warren died peacefully at her home on January 24th, 2019.
Lara is survived by her brother David and his wife Kate and their son Jason of Hyde Park, her
brother Adam and his husband Jay of Providence, her father Alan of Randolph, and her aunt
Nancy and uncle John of Seekonk. Lara is predeceased by her mother Mona of Providence.
Lara possessed a great sense of humor, liveliness, spirit, self-determination, and feistiness that will
be deeply missed by her family and all that knew her.
Lara has been a long-term member of the Corliss community in Warren, RI. The Corliss
Center and its funding organization, the Corliss Institute were created to serve the deaf and
special needs community of Rhode Island. The Corliss community is made up of a highly
interactive day program at the Corliss Center itself, with many members also residents at the
adjoining group homes on the small campus in Warren. Being a part of this community allowed
Lara to communicate and interact in ways that never would have been possible without the care
and attention of the staff and other Corliss members. This has been a true home and an
additional family to Lara.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Lara Wright may be made to:
The Corliss Institute, 290 Main Street, Warren, RI 02885.
