Obituary

Sylvia Dale (Burchfield) Wright - January 10, 1934 – February 22, 2019
Born January 10, 1934 to Marylou (Hunley) Burchfield and Ralph Burchfield in Surgoinsville, Hawkins County, Tennessee, Dale passed into glory to be with the Lord on February 22, 2019. She leaves behind her husband, Ralph Wright, her son, Todd Wright, and her brother, Bethel Burchfield. Dale loved her many nieces and nephews and being “Aunt Grandma” to their children. Dale was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Harry Burchfield, her sister Wanda (Burchfield) Smith, her sister-in-law Nancy (Quillen) Burchfield, and her sister and best friend in many escapades, Jean (Burchfield) Moore.
Dale grew up in Hawkins County before moving to Kingsport, where she met her Sweetheart, Ralph. They married on March 1, 1958 and made their home in Colonial Heights. There, Dale ran her own business and developed her reputation as “hairdresser to the stars” in her community. She was a long-time member of Colonial Heights Baptist Church.
She loved hosting her nieces Gail and Myra from Atlanta in the summer and her many road trips with Ralph to his Shriner’s conventions throughout North America. She enjoyed traveling with the SSHS band parents to ball games, competitions, and concerts all over the Southeast. She was a fan of the Volunteers and the Atlanta Braves and enjoyed sharing all aspects of her life with those that she loved.
She leaves behind a legacy of welcome hospitality and a remembrance of a smile and spirit that always filled the room.
East Tennessee Funeral Home in Blountville has been entrusted with the arrangements and will host visitation with the family Monday, February 25 at 1:00-3:00 pm with a Memorial Celebration of her life at 3:00pm with Dr. Greg Burton officiating. Entombment will follow the Celebration of Life.
Friends and family are encouraged to make donations to Shriner’s Hospitals or the Alzheimer’s Association in lieu of flowers should they desire.
The family and friends of Dale Wright wish to thank the staff at Life Care Center of Gray for the excellent care, love, and support they so generously provided in recent years.
