CATHERINE E. FRANK was born January 25, 1912 at Scheffield, ND 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, WI 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 on October 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.

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.
