She was baptized and confirmed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Redwood Falls. Amanda attended country school at District 63 in Redwood Falls Township. She spent her early years working as a helper for many of her family members and was always there to help when a new baby was born or someone was ill. On June 5, 1946 Amanda married Otto Zick at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Redwood Falls. After marriage, they farmed Otto’s family farm in Granite Rock Township, Redwood County, working hard and enjoying many happy years watching their family grow. Amanda was a member of Ladies Aid and a Sunday school teacher for many years at St. John’s of Vesta. The couple retired from farming in 1974 and returned to Redwood Falls where Amanda worked as a housekeeper, then as matron at Gilwood Haven from 1980 to 2001. Amanda was a member of St. John Redwood Falls Ladies Aid and quilting group. Her family was very important to her and she spent many hours playing, reading stories and teaching songs to her grandchildren. She loved to watch them participate in their events and always gave them positive encouragement. Amanda spent many hours recording the family history through photo albums and scrapbooks. She enjoyed crocheting and making quilts for everyone in her family. Amanda loved working in her flower garden, especially with her beautiful irises. She moved to Garnette Gardens in April 2005 and then to Wood Dale Home in January 2008 where she was residing when she went home to her Lord and Savior on March 2, 2011.
