Beth A. Wright, age 46, of Waterloo and formerly of Shell Rock, died Wednesday, April 3, 2013, surrounded by her family at the Waverly Health Center in Waverly, Iowa from complications of cancer.

Beth was born March 24, 1967, in Waverly, Iowa, the daughter of Tom and Shirley (Gobin) Wright. She graduated from Waverly-Shell Rock High School in 1985 and Mount Mercy College in 1989. She then went on to earn her Masters Degree in Education from the University of Northern Iowa in 1998. She began her career in education at St. Nicks in Evansdale and later St. Johns in Waterloo. She became Principal at St. Mary's Catholic School in Waterloo and continued in the same position with Queen of Peace Catholic School until 2006. She was currently serving as Principal at St. Joseph Community School in New Hampton, a post she held for six years.

An individual of strong faith and compassion for her work, Beth cherished the opportunities she was given to shape the lives of young children. She had a passion for seeing that each and every student was taken care of. She was a proud member of the Sisterhood of the Eastside. Her greatest joy in life came from her nieces and nephews. She took them on countless outings, including camping and trips to the movie theatre. She enjoyed attending all of their sporting events.

Beth is survived by her parents, Tom and Shirley Wright of Shell Rock, two brothers; Matthew Wright of West Des Moines and Michael Wright of Shell Rock, one sister; Cathy (Jerry) Asplund of Waverly, six nieces and nephews; Victoria, Jacob, Zachary, Meghan, Robby and Brynn, and a very special lifelong friend, Terrance Funke.
