Luella was born March 25, 1944 to Laverne and Roy Rockstad and grew up in Williston. She married the love of her life, Lloyd Nantt in Hebron on February 23, 1963 and they made their home in Werner, prior to purchasing the Dunn Center Grain where they raised their first four children. While there she worked as city auditor and helped keep work at the grain elevator. Lloyd and Luella moved to Wahpeton in 1987, where Luella achieved her dream of becoming a nurse and was very active in the local softball community. In 1995, they moved to Dickinson, where they raised Lloyd Rey, played in local bowling leagues, and spent time with their grandchildren. Lloyd and Luella moved to Wishek in 2012 and then to Bismarck in 2014, where Luella took care of her husband until his death. Luella then moved back to Wishek in 2019 to reside at the Wishek Living Center.

Luella’s children and grandchildren were her pride and joy, and she spent a lot of time teaching them how to cook, sew, and play pinochle. Throughout her life she was very active in both bowling and softball and she helped pass that onto her family.

Luella is survived by her daughter, Lanette Blodgett of Anchorage, Alaska, grandchildren, Kyla, Madison, Taylor, Donovan, Kari, and Autumn; son Lyle (Heidi) Nantt of Wishek, grandchildren, Tyler, Josh, and Rachel, great-grandchildren, Cadence and Josh Nantt; son, Loren (Lorrie) Nantt of Dickinson, grandchildren, Alexis, Hannah, and Grace; son, Lloyd (Hailey) Nantt of Mandan; brother, Gerald (Anita) Rockstad; sisters Mary (Eddie) Nelson, Patricia (Ronald) Christensen, Larae (Tim) Nelson, sister-in-Law Carla Oster and many loving nieces, nephews and extended family. Luella was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, and friend to all. She was preceded in death by her Husband of 53 years, Lloyd, son Leslie, son-in-law Marc, her brothers Paul, John, Ronald, Steven, stepfather Reynold Oster and her parents.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the Wishek Living Center for all of the great care and joy they brought to Luella.  Thank you to Sanford Medical Center staff for their dedication and compassion. Thank you to Ladbury Funeral Service for all the arrangements and support.
