She attended school in Aurora and Salina, Utah. Manilla married Glen S. Backman on May 17, 1947 in Evanston, Wyoming. They were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on March 29, 1960.

Aunt Manilla loved to quilt, sew and crochet. All family members were the recipients of her many talents. She loved to garden, and had a beautiful yard and a wonderful vegetable garden. The entire family enjoyed many backyard barbeques. Aunt Manilla and Uncle Sandy served a dual role of both aunt and uncle and grandparents to many of the nieces and nephews.
