Charlene Wright (née Howells) was born to Debra Jamerson in Woodbury, NJ on June 14, 1975. She was educated at Reutter Elementary School and was advanced to Delsea Regional High School. At Delsea, she was a cheerleader and that is where she met the love of her life, Thamon Wright. They were wed on September 21, 2007 in a lovely ceremony at Masso’s in Glassboro, NJ.
“Char”, “Chuck” or “Chuckadoodle,” as those near and dear to her called her, worked for Walmart before beginning her 20 career with New Jersey Transit. There she gained lifelong friendships with people who adored her.
Charlene gave birth to three beautiful children: Lesleigh Concera, Jalen Zhafir and Amon Ibn Wright. As a mother, Charlene was a dedicated and loving supporter of her children. She was the consummate sports mom and her greatest joys were her children’s sporting events and the newest addition, her grandson Allan Watson IV. She would do anything to see her children successful, no matter the sacrifice. Her home was filled with love and fun, to which she invited family members and friends from near and far. Everyone felt welcome in the home she made for her family and her giving spirit will be missed.
Charlene prized her role as wife and mother. She enjoyed simple displays of love and affection; she loved taking long walks with her husband, their hands intertwined as they traveled through this life together. If there was anyone who could sing the soundtrack to accompany the love that Charlene and Thamon shared, it would have been Maxwell. If the family hit the road, Bob Marley helped the miles pass faster. Her all-time favorite was Mary J. Blige—she would probably sing about Charlene’s life in the sunshine…
Charlene’s life was cut far too short on June 1, 2020. Left to mourn her are her husband, Thamon; her children, Lesleigh, Jaylen and Amon; her mother, Debra; her siblings Christopher Howells, Paulie Pratt and Heather Pratt; her mother and father-in law, Aljuma and Robert Wright; her brothers and sisters-in law, Bobby Wright, Robyn Boyer and Tony Boyer, Valana and Yasir Ramzan; along with a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and lifelong friends.
While we mourn the death of our Beloved, we gain strength in knowing that she instilled the tightest bond between her children, that she loved her husband fiercely and that she was dedicated to the members of her family.
Due to the current health crisis, Funeral services are being held privately.
