In Loving Memory

July 28, 1931 – March 30, 2018

 

Birmingham, AL

Myra Conner Wilkinson, 86, a native of Repton, Alabama, and long-time resident of the Mobile area, passed away on Friday, March 30, 2018. Myra, daughter of Erbie A. Conner and Abbie Jones Conner, was a breast cancer survivor who spent her final years at The Oaks on Parkwood in Bessemer, Alabama.

She is survived by her daughter-in-law, Kathy Wright; granddaughters, Jenifer White (Chris) and Chasity Riddick (Robbie); grandson, Clifton Byrd (Ericka); great-granddaughter, Maggie White; sister, Betty Lee (Glenn), and brother, Larry Conner (Roxanne). She also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews, and special members of the Conner, Wright, Wilkinson, Badillo, and Hadley families. She was preceded in death by her parents, by three loving husbands, Roscoe Wright, Guy Wilkinson, and Joe Badillo; by her son, Jerry “Coach” Wright, and by her great-grandson, Callan Lamar White.

In her retirement, Myra enjoyed traveling by bus to various destinations around the country, with her favorite destination being Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Myra was a woman of strong faith who was actively involved in the United Methodist Church. Her devotion to God was only rivaled by her devotion to her family, many of whom knew her as “Maw Maw” or “Aunt Myra,” and all of whom she loved unconditionally.

The family wishes to express love and appreciation to the staffs of The Oaks on Parkwood and Kindred Hospice for their loving care of Myra in her final years.
