Carma spent most of her younger years growing up in Hinckley, Utah with her parents, sister and three brothers. Carma attended grade and high school in Hinckley, Utah. Hinckley High School and Delta High School were consolidated in 1953, so she graduated after her senior year from Delta High in Delta, Utah. In May, 1954.
Being an Air Force wife, Carma’s spare time over the years has been taken up with handiwork including sewing her own clothes with a Sears sewing machine, which saw much use over the years. She also did embroidery, crocheting, knitting, quilting, and making baby gifts. While Carma periodically worked during her life, her focus was on taking care of her home, husband, and son. Family and friends will miss her kind, sweet spirit demonstrated throughout her life.
Carma is survived by her son Kenneth Scott Wright, four grandchildren (Thomas, David, Allyssa, and Jacob) and two great grandchildren (Evan and Calvin), who live in the Seattle area in Washington; and by brothers Walter Leo Ekins and Eldon LeRoy Ekins.

Life Story Info
So sorry to hear about Carma passing. She was in my ward here in Hurricane for a time, and she was a sweet, kind, and quiet lady. She was good friends with my parents, Neldon and Mary Christensen. I used to see her at the grocery store, and she would always strike up a conversation. I have a plastic sack holder she sewed for me out of fabric, and I think of her all the time when I use it. May her family find peace through this difficult time.
