Anna Marie Bright






Anna Marie Bright of St. Dorothy Parish, located in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, rejoined her husband Toby on August 29th which by happenstance was the 41st anniversary of his death in 1978.  Born July 22nd, 1923 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada to Anna and Joseph Dugal, Anna Marie was the 11th of 14 children.  Once becoming a nurse, she accompanied and cared for her sister Grace in Arizona where she met her forever love George “Toby” Bright. A beloved mother and grandmother, Anna Marie was the matriarch of the family teaching work ethic, love and faith. She is survived by her three children: Nanette Long (Steve), Terri Smith – Long (Frank) and Greg Bright (Trisha) along with eight grandchildren: Stephen, Jessica, Matthew, Bob, Zachary, Sam, Grace and Abby. An avid sports fan, Anna Marie was a fixture at events ranging from little league baseball to high school varsity, as well as a devoted spectator of the Phillies and Eagles.  ‘Mom Mom’ enjoyed volunteering in the parish office and was a diehard bridge player, always up for a competitive challenge in Wii bowling, tennis, ping pong, etc. leaving her  little time to “sit around” unless of course she was crocheting or reading.


Viewing will be at the Ruffenach Funeral Home, 4900 Township Line Road, Drexel Hill on Tuesday September 3rd from 6 to 9PM.  Her Funeral Mass will be at St. Dorothy Church in Drexel Hill on September 4th at 10:30AM.

A wonderful long life and a very good friend who enjoyed spending much time with her at either the bridge table or tennis court, She will certainly be missed by the grand kids she loved and considered her best friends. Finally joining back with her Toby after being alone for so many years. RIP Anna Marie and prayers for the family.

Dear Nan, Terri and Greg and families,
Your mom was a dynamo who loved her family, friends and God. She taught us how to overcome trials with her faith and how to celebrate with her enthusiasm. I am sure that your Dad was waiting with open arms especially being on his anniversary. Her legacy will never be forgotten. May she rest in peace...job well done Honey!
Love and Prayers,
Wendy and Brian
Essex, Ontario

Dear Bright Family, I am very sorry about your loss, the loss of a truly wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. I feel blessed to be part of the Bright family and to have been loved by your mom and dad. I am sorry not to be able to attend her funeral mass but you and she are remembered in my thoughts and prayers. I would like to make a contribution in her memory and will be in touch with Ruffenach Services for information.
May God bless dear Aunt Anna Marie and you and your families.
With deepest sympathy,
Diane Bright Manning
