Roberta Mae Harvie-Perkins, 56, of Cut Bank, Montana, passed away on Tuesday, March 19th at Northern Rockies Medical Center.

Roberta graduated from Cut Bank High School in 1981. Following graduation, she attended Eastern MT College in Billings and Vo-Tech in Helena looking to find her niche in life.

Roberta, always needing to find an adventure, joined the US Navy in 1985 and never looked back. Whether it was from overseas duty at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, numerous deployments to McMurdo Station Antarctica, the heat of the Mohave Desert in Ridgecrest California, and the rain of the Pacific Northwest in Oak Harbor, WA, there was always an adventure to be found with her.

During her career in the Navy, she met and married her husband of 24 years, Kenneth J Perkins of Miles City. Together they raised their son Noah J Perkins, the greatest adventure of all.

After a 20-year career in the Navy, in 2005 Roberta retired from the military and began looking for a new adventure. Roberta decided to move back home to Montana ahead of her husband and son, waiting for his retirement from the Navy in 2006. She was once again searching for her niche. She worked for Holman Aviation in Great Falls for a short stint but decided she needed more. Roberta moved on to find a career with World Wide Custom Brokers in Coutts, Alberta, where she found her niche in life and worked there until her passing. Roberta was preceded in death by her brother, David Harvie Jr.; maternal grandparents, John and Alberta Darragh; and paternal grandparents, Jim and Mae Harvie.

Roberta is survived by her husband, Kenneth Perkins; son, Noah Perkins; parents, David and Allison Harvie; brother, Andy (Karla) Harvie; sister, Cathy (Darren) Hughson; Gus (Mimi) Wildeman; nieces and nephews, Taylor Harvie, Jace Harvie, Morgan Hughson, Remington Wildeman, soon to be Tylee (Jace), Kylan (Morgan); great nieces and nephews, Kade, Colton, Thea and Tyce.

Ken and Noah give their profound appreciation to the nursing staff at Northern Rockies Medical Center, Northern Rockies Medical Center Staff and to the numerous extended family and friends that visited.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Cut Bank Moose Lodge on April 13, 2019 at 3:00 with Military Honors.
