On June 19, 1929 in a small town in Texas called Hutto, a beautiful baby girl was born to proud parents, Morise Dixon, Sr. and Arichard Dixon. She was their first born girl and wold later be the second of six children in the Morise Dixon clan.

Clara was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ at an early age. After the Dixon Famly settled in Austin, Texas Clara joined the St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church. Clara was a dedicated servant in all ministries she worked with. He most loved position of servitude was being the Senior Usher Mentor to the St. Paul Youth Ushers. She remained a member of St. Paul until her peaceful transition.

On July 19, 1947 Clara married Arthur L. Wright, Jr. To this union three children were born, Connie, Arthur (affectionately called Freddy-Boy), and Sharon. Clara worked faithfully as a devoted housewife and her children were the "flowers" of her life. Although Clara and Arthur did not remain married, they remained the best of friends and neighbors from Bennett Avenue to Real Street.

Clara was a natural social butterfly. She was spirited, fun-loving, with a bit of sass and class. She loved to organize special events that involved food, games, and music. Clara possessed many hidden talents, one being her skill with a pool stick. Clara traveled all over the Austin and surrounding areas to play in pool tournaments. Clara also enjoyed playing dominoes, mostly the winning part. She could be found playing dominoes in the company of famiy and friends at the Connally-Guerrero Center, anytime Monday through Friday, AFTER Young and the Restless until closing time. Clara also enjoyed jig-saw, search-a-word, and any other puzzles that challenged the mind. Clara was always sharp and witty and she had a smile that you could not help but to return once shined upon you.

Clara was a member of the Eastern Star Organization.

Ecclesiasted 7:1 says: "A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth."

In the twilight of morning on December 22, 2011, God chose to make better the good name of Clara Wright and received her into His eternal estate. We know that Clara is in a better place, in a better condition, and reunited with her parents, son, Arthur Wright and grandson, Joseph Dominic Brown.

Clara's legacy of Love is represented in the form of two daughters: Connie M. Brown of Pflugerville, Texas and Sharon D. Wright of Austin, Texas; four brothers, Morise Dixon, Jr. (Emma) of Austin, Texas, Earlie Dixon (Bettye) and Horace Dixon, Sr. (Rebecca) both of Pflugerville, Texas and Melvin Dixon (Dorothy) of Killeen, Texas; one sister (and best friend) Dorothy M. Wilson of Corpus Christi, Texas; five grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, and a host of loving nieces and nephews.
