Celebrating the life of
Meta Maria Hogge Wright
January 23, 1930 - August 06, 2023
Meta Maria Hogge Wright “Mimi” passed away peacefully on August 6, 2023, at her home at The Oaks Assisted Living in Pooler. She was born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 23, 1930, to Bertie Rafael Hogge and Cornele Smith Hogge. Mimi spent her youth in several Central American and Caribbean countries where her father worked for United Fruit Company.
Mimi and her sister, Betsy, came to the United States to attend high school at Mount De Sales in Macon, Georgia during WWII. After graduation, she attended LSU where she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Later, she attended New York City’s Katharine Gibbs secretarial school.
Mimi married Harold Bell Wright in 1955, and they later welcomed their 2 sons, Scott and Michael. Mimi moved to Savannah in 1973 where she worked at Chatham Nursing Home for 21 years as comptroller and administrator.
Mimi partnered with some co-workers to build Marshview Assisted Living, one of the first of its kind in Savannah. She retired in 1999; afterwards, she spent her time inputting historical birth/marriage/death records into a database at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. In addition, she gave her time volunteering with the Martin de Porres Society and bowling in the Savannah city league.
Grandmama Mimi, as she was affectionately called by her 5 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren, loved spending time with family and friends and cheering on the Atlanta Braves. She spent her final years in the loving community at The Oaks Assisted Living, where she cultivated new friendships. Mimi was known for her sweet demeanor and funny sense of humor.
She is survived by her 2 sons and wives: Scott Wright (Jan) of Cleveland TN and Michael Wright (Lynn) of Savannah, grandchildren: Charlie Wright, Sallie Wright Tingle (Caleb), Steele Wright (Brooke), David Wright, and Rebecca Wright (Joel Medford) and her 6 great-grandchildren, her sister Betsy Kersey (Gerry) of Cleveland TN, nieces, and a nephew. Through the years Mimi attended St James, Sacred Heart, and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah.
