Genevieve Mary Kadlec was born on March 27, 1924 to Joe and Mary (Stulc) Kadlec near Loyalton. This is the area she grew up and attended school. Genevieve started her education a year early to attend with her brother. The first year of school was difficult for her because she did not speak any English at the time, as she was accustomed to speaking Bohemian. She graduated from Loyalton High School in 1942. Following high school, she was employed with the ASCS office in Ipswich where she worked until marriage.
Genevieve was united in marriage to Keith Nash on June 17, 1953, at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Ipswich. Their union was blessed with four sons and one daughter. The family made their home in rural Chelsea, where the family farmed for many years, raising chickens, beef cattle, dairy cows, pigs and horses. She was often seen carrying feed pails and milk buckets to feed the livestock. Genevieve and Keith relocated to Aberdeen in 2009. Keith passed away on January 31, 2015.
Genevieve was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Aberdeen and a longtime member of Sacred Heart Altar Society in Chelsea. While living in the Scatterwood Lake area she was a member of the Community Club and enjoyed the local ladies "Birthday Club". Also, at that time, she was a member of the Town and Country Extension Club. Genny and Keith were also active members of the Belles and Beaus' Square Dance Club, of Aberdeen.
In her spare time, she enjoyed tending her garden, crocheting, knitting, reading and doing crossword puzzles. Genevieve and Keith loved square dancing and watching the Minnesota Twins together.

She was known for her Kolaches and making an Angel food cake for everyone on their birthdays.
