She was later adopted through the union of Vernice and Glen Mayer. They were sealed together in the Salt Lake City temple for all eternity.

Carma was raised one of 4 children. She was known as one of the “Mayer twins” as she and her brother Robert “Bob” Mayer graduated from Orem High School together in 1959. She later attended beauty school in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Carma was married to the love of her life, Richard LeRoy “Dick” Jacobson on March 19, 1960 and became a party of 5 as their union brought 3 children aboard, Cynthia “Cindy”, Richard “Rick”, and Gregory “Greg”. There was nothing that Carma loved more than being a mother and within 5 years their family grew with Tracy in 1961 and Terry in 1965. Carma and Dick’s marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake City LDS temple.

As a family they lived in Utah, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Nevada. Through that time Carma was involved in family, church, and retail. During their 48 years of marriage she and Dick owned a beauty salon, a ceramic shop, a craft store, a T-Shirt shop, and a Lace/Fabric shop. She also had a wholesale business where she made and sold boutique items all over the country. She was energetic, hardworking, compassionate, and creative.

Carma left a legacy of service, love and laughter. She is survived by her children: Cindy Campbell (Gary) of Sheridan, Wyoming, Tracy Assmus (Kenneth) of Spokane, Washington, and Terry Jacobson (Jamie Cook) of Seattle, Washington.
