Clara Vee Beyler

May 25, 1933 - Apr. 28, 2022

Date of Service: May 7, 2022

Clara Vee Wight Beyler, age 88, passed away on Thursday, Apr 28, 2022, at the home of her son, Marty, in Malad, Idaho.

She was born May 25, 1933, in Declo, Idaho, to Harvey J and Sarah Mae Darrington Wight at the home of her maternal grandparents. She started school in Juniper, Idaho, and when that school closed, her mother took the kids to stay with her parents in Declo so they could attend school there. When she was in the fifth grade her family moved to Malta where she finished her education, graduating from Raft River High School.

She married Grant Beyler in the Logan Utah Temple on Feb 5, 1952. Shortly after their marriage, they lived in Escondido, Calif., where Grant was stationed while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. Their first son, Mike, was born during this time. After the service, they made their home in Malta where they raised their six children.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and faithfully served as ward and stake Relief Society President, and Gospel Doctrine teacher, among many other callings. Her last calling before leaving Malta was that of chorister, which she enjoyed very much. Together with her husband, they served a mission to Oakland, Calif., and later officiated at the Logan Temple.

She leaves behind a legacy of music, art and family history. Above all else, she cherished time spent with her beloved family.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Grant; a son, Michael; her parents, Harvey and Sarah Wight; and three siblings, Jack, Harold, and LaRene (Whitaker).

She is survived by five children, Darlene (Terry) Briggs, Sue (Joe) Barrett, Judy Beyler (Kevin Morley), Marty (CarrieSue) Beyler, and Sherri (Doug) Christenson; one sister, Donna Butler; 18 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 7, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – Malta Ward, located at 280 N 1st St. West, in Malta, with Bishop Layne Schumann officiating. Burial will follow at Valley Vu Cemetery in Malta.

Family and friends will be received at the Church from 9:30 until 10:45 a.m. prior to the service.

Clara was an amazing woman who will be missed on earth but is having wonderful reunions in her new place. She taught me so much about life and love -- and music. Now she is singing with the angels. I love this whole family.
From Teri Anderson Karren:
I remember so well going to Malta to see Uncle Grant, Aunt Clara and their family and my grandfather, Leo Beyler. Aunt Clara was the kindest and sweetest woman ever and her hospitality never waivered. She smiled a lot, that big smile of hers. I am confident in my heart that she is so happy to be reunited with Mike, who left this earth at such a tender age, and with Uncle Grant. She will not be forgotten!

I am so thankful that I grew up among my many Darrington cousins. It has been a long time since I last saw Clara, but she is part of a wonderful legacy. Wishing you all peace and strength for the days to come.

From Kelly Briggs Rose:
Darlene, Sue, Judy, Marty, & Sherri, I want you to know how much I appreciate your mom. She is a beautiful lady inside & out. One of my fondest memories (which there are many) is her singing. I spent many hours at your home growing up and remember her singing or humming a tune with her beautiful voice. She will be missed by so many here on earth, but is having a grand reunion with those awaiting her. Clara thank you for being an amazing example.
Love, Kelly Briggs Rose
