On June 10, 1929, Catherine married Frank B. Lefor, and together they moved to Glendive.

Frank passed away in 1984, and Catherine continued to live in Glendive until 1999, when she moved to Dickinson.

In Dickinson, she made her home at the Park Avenue Villa until 2003, at which time she entered St. Luke's Nursing Home.

A few of her joys in life include crocheting, knitting and visiting with others.

She was very proud of each of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as she made afghans for each and every one.

There was always a pot of coffee on along with homemade cookies and her famous strudels or rolls.

Her home was warm and inviting and was the gathering place for family and friends.

Catherine enjoyed genealogy and kept up both her family and her husband's families books.
