Catherine E. Frank was born Jan. 25, 1912, at Scheffield to Raymond and Margaret (Schloss) Frank. She was the 10th of 12 children and was the last of her siblings.
She started high school which was taught by the Holy Cross Sisters at Merrill, Wis., and eventually returned to graduate from high school in Dickinson.
Upon graduation, she worked as a nurse at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Dickinson and that is where she met her husband, Nick Reinert. They were married Oct. 27, 1936, and celebrated 73 years of marriage in 2009. Their marriage served as an example of commitment and love for each other.
Catherine and Nick made their life together on the family farm northeast of Mott. Catherine farmed alongside of Nick enjoying the farm life. She always had a huge garden and loved, most of all, her flowers. Nick and Catherine farmed together for 42 years before retiring in Mott. They entered the nursing home in 2008 and Nick died June 21, 2010.
Catherine celebrated her 100th birthday in January of 2012. It was a wonderful celebration of a woman who served as an example for all of her family.
She attended daily Mass when possible and had a deep devotion for Mary, the Mother of God, and prayed the rosary every day. She had been a member of the St. Placidus Choir and was a member of St. Vincent’s Altar Society.
Catherine died Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Good Samaritan Home with family at her side.
Left with loving memories are their six children: Mildred (Nick) Wegh, Dickinson; Kathy (Jim) Brewster, Olympia, Wash.; Sister Agnes Reinert O.S.B., Bismarck; Nick (Loretta) Reinert, Dickinson; John (Patty) Reinert, Bismarck; and Ernie (Carol) Reinert, Bismarck. She is also survived by 23 grandchildren, 54 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Nick, one grandson, Richard Wegh, her parents, nine sisters: Ottilia Sticka, Celestine Stoltz, Sister Ledwina, Appolonia Degele, Mary Eva Steier, Rose Rice, Frances Dolajak, Margaret Miller and Cecilia Romaine and two brothers: Jim and Sebastian Frank.
