Kay Storrs Harding was born January 11, 1942 to George and Lena Storrs. Her birth place was a small hospital located above a hardware store in American Fork. This was a source of amusement to her throughout her life. Kay spent her early years in American Fork and attended school there. While she was a sophomore she agreed to a blind date with Neil Harding. They would later become high school sweethearts and get married after Neil finished his mission. Kay was a tom-boy and loved to work with her dad George. They were very close. She would share stories about riding Old Bill the workhorse and helping dad put the hay up in the barn. She also gathered eggs, hoed sugar beets and topped onions. At the end of the summer her dad would give her a $100 dollar bill for her summer labor. On one occasion she used this money to take tap dancing lessons. She became good enough that she appeared on Uncle Roscoe's program for children on television. Kay worked as a bank teller to put Neil through school. She was proficient with numbers, forms and bookkeeping procedure. She later took a position at the Grantsville Post office and worked there for many years. She held many positions in the LDS Church but her favorite was as secretary in the Relief Society. She held this position for many years. She always said that her calling was working with numbers and statistics. She was very good at this. In addition to her many talents Kay was also a very gifted artist. She had little formal training so most of her work was pure talent from the heart. Many homes here in Grantsville are decorated with her tole painting skills on some sort of furniture or craft item. She became such an accomplished artist that some of the people she painted with took her advice on how to improve their skills. Her husband Neil always complained that "She painted about 100 times better than I could carpenter!" She loved her "boys" and their wives, and the grand children ruled her heart. She was a great party planner for the family and several times a year she would put on parties that lasted most of the day. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Fourth of July and birthdays were her specialties. She was never happier than when working in the kitchen and making "goodies" for the grandkids and her parties. She was devoted to her family and her husband. Kay passed away on November 13th after a 3 year valiant battle with cancer. Three times she knew that she had been victorious but the last battle was too much for her. She is survived by her husband Neil, sons Chris (Josie), Mike (Jeanette), Sean (Michelle), and Patrick (Carrie) Harding, and her grand children, Kayla, Remington, Jehrid, Ammon, Madison, Kenyan and KaydenRay Harding and her sister Delene Cates and her brother Dr. Bruce Storrs. She leaves a large void in many hearts and will be a sweet, painful memory for many years.
