She was born on June 25, 1924 in Pleasant Grove, Utah, the fourth of six children born to Samuel Drollinger Moore, Jr. and Mabel Monson Moore.

The day of her graduation she entered the mission field and served in the Northern States Mission. Following her mission, she taught school and met her future husband, Wayne Ekman Fisher, in a church choir. They were married in the Logan Utah LDS Temple on June 29, 1949 and raised six children. She was a loving and attentive wife and mother. Mom had a firm testimony of Jesus Christ and of Joseph Smith, the Prophet, and in the Restoration. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in many callings including Relief Society President.
Zina was blessed with a gifted coloratura soprano voice and love for music. At an early age she performed with her sisters on a weekly radio program. During her college days she soloed in the Messiah and many other university events and traveled throughout Utah and Idaho on concert tours.
