Carma Larue Asay Nielsen Herrington Harding was born October 31,  1929 in Price Utah to Seth Burns Asay and Lora Alverda Johnstun Asay. She was the first of nine children, six girls and three boys. They moved many times during her school years. She had a great love for her parents and siblings and had many special memories of their time together.

She married Wayne Jordan Nielsen September 23, 1948, and together had two daughters, Jennie Lee and Debbie Ellen. They later divorced. She married Norman Clayton Herrington February 8, 1963, and together had two sons, Gregory and Kory. They later divorced. She married Harold Lyman Harding May 25, 1972.

Carma loved her family very much. She especially enjoyed her grandchildren and hugs. She called her children the cake and her grandchildren the icing on the cake.

She loved good books and had a large collection. She loved good poetry and thoughts and collected the same. She loved people and the Lord. Mom wrote the majority of this obituary several years ago.

We would like to add that she moved to Tooele to the Rocky Mountain Care – Willow Springs, Tooele, Utah where she made many friends and took up coloring in addition to her other hobbies.
