Beverly J. Wight

Beverly J. (Miller) Wight, 96, of the Plantsville section of Southington, died at her home peacefully on Monday, November 13, 2023. She had been the loving wife of the late Roland A. Wight. Beverly was born on July 23, 1927 in Waterbury, CT to the late Ernest and Mabel (Howell) Miller.

Beverly retired from FanSteel in 1987. For the last 15 years, she resided with her daughter Dorinda, who was her caregiver. Dorinda believed it was a privilege to be with her mother daily and was grateful for each day they had together. She will miss her company and couldn't have wished for a better mother. 

Beverly got polio at the age of 4 but her handicap didn't stop her from living a happy and productive life. She shared a very happy marriage with Roland for 26 1/2 years before his passing. Together they had 5 healthy children, 5 grandchildren and 4 great-grandsons. 

Beverly cherished her family. She enjoyed entering contests, gardening, sewing, trips to the casino, playing cards with her friends and baking, leaving lasting memories of her delightful peanut butter balls and fudge. 

Beverly was a loving mother and grandmother. She is survived by her son, Clifford Wight and his wife Laura of Southington and her daughter, Dorinda Hultgren of Plantsville and her boyfriend Alan McDonald, 5 grandchildren: Steven Wight and husband Jim Voccola, David Wight, Monica Ertel, Joshua Wight and Marc Wight and 4 great-grandsons: Adam and Parker Voccola-Wight and Ian and Matthew Ertel. She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Joyce Simmons of Daytona Beach, FL and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband Roland, Beverly was predeceased by 3 sons; Barry D. Wight, Marvin G. Wight and Wesley C. Wight, as well as her brother, Arthur Alvin Miller. Beverly was also predeceased by her very good friend, Norman "Hutch" Hutchinson who made her a 9-foot metal tree which held 55 pots of impatients. This tree was her pride and joy that she proudly displayed in her front yard. For many years, people enjoyed her "flower tree" and it was pictured in the Country Magazine Apr/May 94' issue. Beverly was one of the two longest members of the Plantsville Congregational Church in Plantsville and will be deeply missed by her church family.
