Anna Post Harding

March 10, 1944 — December 7, 2023


Anna Post Harding passed away on December 7, 2023, in her home surrounded by the love of her family and friends.

Anna was born in Plain City, Utah on March 10, 1944, to Jane Wolthius and Balster Post. She met her husband, Reed Wright Harding, at Browning Arms Co. while she was working as a cook. Reed would come in from the mink farm to have lunch every day and fell in love with her and her cooking. They were married on August 20, 1976, and later sealed in the Ogden Temple on September 15, 1990.

Anna embraced her Dutch heritage and was proud of where she came from. She took a trip to Holland with family to explore the culture and experience what her ancestry truly means. She displayed the love of her heritage through her home, and she enjoyed telling stories about her mother and father.

Anna loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family and the workers they hired to help on the mink farm. She made everything from scratch and loved teaching her family how to bake/cook. She was also a master at canning. She enjoyed canning everything from deer meat, fruits, and vegetables. This is also a skill she passed on to her kids and grandkids.

Anna was a hard worker. She worked on the mink farm, raised her own Angus cattle, and helped raise her husband’s sheep, chickens and horses even though she hated those “range maggots.”

Her and Reed retired in 2000 and built their forever dream home in Morgan, UT. They moved part of their farm to their newly built home, where they continued to raise cattle, horses, and chickens.

Anna always had the most beautiful yard at the farm and in Morgan. She loved to plant flowers and she had several flower beds that she took care of. Reed and Anna grew the largest vegetable garden and always shared their garden with everyone.

She loved to play bunko. She had the most incredible group of women that she played bunko with once a month. She always looked forward to it. She also loved bowling and joined a bowling league in Morgan.

Anna has 6 siblings who meant the world to her. She was very close with all her siblings as well as their spouses. They would get together once a month and play cards or games. They would go on trips together and love every minute of it. Her sisters always made her laugh. 

Anna is survived by 4 daughters: Valarie (Rodney) Haslam, Sherrie (Buck) Shafer, Lynette Pagano, and Wanda Balaich as well as 7 grandkids, and 12 great grandkids. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her heart and joy that she cherished more than anything. Nothing was more important to her than family.

She is preceded in death by her eternal spouse and love of her life, Reed Harding, her parents, her sister Harmeina Brown, brother Henry Post, granddaughter Nachele Shafer, and great grandson Reed Clarke Garn.

A very special thanks to Canyon Hospice & Home Care and Matthew from Red Rock Medical Supplies. A special thanks to Sarah, Grace, and Jen. They were there with her in the end, and we know she appreciated it.
