Carma Perry Wight, of Hall, passed away on March 1, 2020 at the age of 86 at the Village Nursing Home in Missoula, Montana, after a prolonged struggle with Parkinson’s disease. Carma was born the 5th of 6 children in Independence, Idaho on November 20, 1933, to Vern and Pauline Perry. Carma remembered growing up spending long days hoeing beets and picking potatoes on the family farm. She attended elementary school in Thornton, Idaho and graduated from high school in Rexburg. Carma moved to Sacramento, California after high school, where she worked for the telephone company and at S&H Kress. She was riding the Greyhound bus home for Christmas when a young man in an Army uniform asked if he could sit next to her. They dated when they could, and eventually Bill Wight asked for her hand in marriage. They married for time and eternity on Carma’s 24th birthday in 1957 in the Idaho Falls LDS temple. Bill and Carma made their home at the family ranch in Hall, Montana. Along with raising cattle, they had a family of 5 sons and 1 daughter. Carma was very active in her church, serving for many years as the Relief Society secretary and nursery leader.

Carma knew the heartbreak of losing her son, Mark, in 1983 and her husband, Bill, in 1984. She continued to raise and care for her family on the ranch in addition to babysitting many children from the area. Her greatest joy was the time spent with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Carma is survived by her sister, Nona (Harold) Miller of Wilton, California, her brother Clinton Perry of Williston, North Dakota, her children Myron (Eve) Wight of Florence, Bruce (Shauna) Wight of Hall, Blair Wight of Hall, Calvin (Robin) Wight of Drummond, and Brenda (Marco) Demers of Great Falls, 10 grandchildren, and soon to be 14 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and sisters, Ruby Christensen and Martha Perry, her brother, Dean Perry, and her husband Bill, and son, Mark.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, March 7th at 10:00 a.m. at the LDS church in Drummond. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Village Nursing Home for their wonderful care.
