Geneva June (Tinklenberg) Zick was born on June 13, 1929 to Richard Simon and Cornelia Rose (Moret) Tinklenberg in Edgerton, Minnesota. She grew up in Edgerton and lived there until 1937 when her family moved to Holland, Minnesota. She attended country school there until 1940 when her family moved to Pipestone, Minnesota. She graduated from Pipestone High School in 1946. In 1947, Gene was united in marriage to Robert Darnell Moore. The two lived in the Pipestone area. Gene owned and cooked at several restaurants in Pipestone. In 1966 their marriage ended. In 1968, she was united in marriage to Hugo Zick. After their marriage the couple moved to several different cities until the time of Hugo’s death in 2014 when the two were living in Marshall, Minnesota.

Gene enjoyed attending Living Word Lutheran Church in Marshall. She loved supporting her children and grandchildren at their sporting events throughout the years; they brought her great joy. She also liked journaling and writing poems. She was very proud of the store she started, “Lighthouse Books and Treasures.” Along with her daughter Rachel, she ran stores in Lake Benton, Tyler, and Tracy. Their Marshall location "Treasured Times" is still in operation today. Time spent with family was treasured, especially when it happened at the lake while enjoying a boat ride.
