Tammara Lee Asay, age 63, returned home Saturday, June 10, 2023, from the Villa Care Center, where she resided for the past year, due to a 13-year battle with Alzheimer’s.
We would like to thank all of her many caregivers for the kind and loving way they took care of her.
Tammie was born September 23, 1959, in Roosevelt, Utah to Zane LaVell and Karma Lee Mecham Asay. She was the oldest of five children, two girls and three boys.
She was always a big help to her parents and siblings. Tammie gained many skills working alongside her dad. He would always say, "She could have a nail gun in one hand and a skill saw in the other".
Tammie was valedictorian of West Jr. High and graduated 4th highest from Union High School.
Tammie was a faithful member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served her Heavenly Father through her many callings and as a missionary in the Hamburg, Germany Mission. When released she was very proficient in the language.
Tammie was a hard worker! She worked many years for First Security Bank in both Roosevelt & SLC, Utah. Her last job was working for the church as an administrative secretary/clerk for the FM (Facility Management) custodial group for the Church.
Sometime around the age of 50, Tammie was diagnosed with early onset of Alzheimer’s which forced her to retire.
She loved her little dog Coco, whom she spoiled and doted on. In response, Coco has been a very loving companion that has brought her much joy and happiness!
Although Tammie never had the opportunity to marry, she has been a very loving daughter, the best sister and confidant and a very cherished aunt. Her sweet spirit will greatly be missed.
She is survived by her father, Zane LaVell Asay, brothers, Ron & Korinne Asay, Ken & Karen Asay of Roosevelt; Geary Asay of Provo; sister, Laurel & Mark Seymour of Roosevelt; 18 nieces and nephews and 14 great nieces and nephews, and her beloved dog Coco.
Tammie was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents, mother, Karma Mecham Asay, two nieces, Celest Pearl and Angela Rose Asay, 2 Nephews, Anthony Asay, and Daniel Wilkins, step-moms, Verla Prescott Asay and Sherry Sims Asay and many aunts and uncles.
