She met and married George Clarke in 1941. Born to their marriage was one daughter, Sharron. For the first five years of their marriage, George worked for the BLM and they lived in several states. They then moved back to Harrison, Neb. in 1946. In 1967 George set up a law practice. After building their home, they moved to Lusk, where George practiced law.

Della’s favorite things were her flower gardens in the summer, decorating her home for Christmas, playing bridge as often as she could, and going to Prairie Winds on the Senior Bus to gamble. She read numerous books, bowled, and she and George played a lot of golf. She loved her poodles, which she called her “babies”.
