Vella married her sweetheart, Blaine Durrant, on June 20, 1958 in the Logan LDS Temple.  They were the parents of four children who loved them dearly.

Vella worked in the Lewiston Drug Store and in the Hamilton Drug Store in Jerome, Idaho.  She will be best remembered for her countless years as the Lewiston Librarian.

She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  She loved serving with the Young Women and as the Relief Society President in her ward.  Later in life, she and Blaine served a mission at the Richmond Seminary with the special needs youth.

Vella loved life and loved to laugh.  Her smile was infectious.  Everyone loved to be around her and she made everyone feel special and loved.
