Carma was a long-time community volunteer at the American Fork Hospital Pink Shop and Senior Citizens Center. She also served on the American Fork Cemetery committee. She was a faithful member of the LDS Church and served in many callings, most recently as Relief Society President. She loved serving a mission in Poland with her husband.

As Carma always said, "there's no place like home."
Carma is survived by her husband, Doug and children: Bret (Samantha) Cornell, Shari (Josh) Parkin, Robyn Cornell, 7 grandchildren, siblings Craig (Jill) Roberts, Dale (Becci) Roberts, and Carrie (Chad) Smith. She is preceded in death by her son Kent, her parents and sister Carol.
