Gen married the late Kenneth (Ken) O. Huelse in April 11, 1953, and resided in Waukesha. Gen and Ken moved to a home they designed and built in the Village of Lac La Belle in 1964. They had a son, Greg, born in 1954, and daughter, Karen, born in 1956. In early 1965, they had another son, Kurt. They all currently live in Watertown.

Gen was a homemaker, crafter, reader, avid flower and vegetable gardener, and competitive bowler with many trophies to her credit. She would have loved to be an archeologist.
