Vay was born in Fort Bridger, Wyoming, on June 6, 1931, to Marion N and Inez Elizabeth (Hollingshead) Davidson.  She grew up in Evanston, Wyoming, and graduated from high school there. While working at Safeway, she met her future husband, Elmon Lyle Apgood. They were married on May 28, 1950. They lived in the northwest for a time finally settling in Kalispell, Montana. They were sealed together as a family for time and all eternity in the Alberta Temple on June 20, 1964. They worked many years in the grocery business, eventually operating their own store in Lyman, Wyoming.

Vay was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints and served in many callings. She served in the Arizona Phoenix Mission from 1995 to 1996. Vay was a member of the Uinta County Historical society and also enjoyed reading, art, quilting, gardening and cooking. Her brownies were amazing! Vay loved people. Even when strangers would call the house for whatever reason, she would ask their name and about what was going on in their life. She made people feel they were important. Her greatest joy was her family, whom she loved dearly. She led a life of service to the Lord, her family, and her community.
Vay was preceded in death by her parents, husband, sister Inez Norris, brother-in-law Gerald Norris, nephew Ron Norris, two brothers Marion Davidson and David Davidson, son-in-law Bruce Aimone, and two grandchildren Lindsey and Spencer Apgood.
