The developers, attempting to acquire her Hilton Head land, took her to court over alleged property boundary issues. Perry stepped in to support her fight against the housing giant, promising to build her a new house.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, Perry expressed his sorrow, stating:
“I am so heartbroken to hear about the passing of this warrior.”
Wright’s family announced her passing on the GoFundMe page initiated to support her cause. The family exceeded the $350,000 fundraising goal, and Perry, alongside contributions from others like Kyrie Irving, showed immense support.
Perry lamented not being able to meet Wright in person but expressed his determination to fulfill his promise.
He vowed to provide the house for her four children, 40 grandchildren, 50 great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren.
Perry emphasized that the family could still gather at the new house on the land, continuing Wright’s legacy as a fighter.
Josephine Wright’s homegoing service is scheduled for January 13, 2024, at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church on Hilton Head Island.
