After moving from the family farm, Catherine worked at St Catherine's Hospital in McCook as a nurse's aide. Then in 1952 she met the love of her life, Alden Vern Remington.

They were married for 60 wonderful years and blessed with 9 children, numerous grandchildren and great grand children all of whom she adored.

Catherine loved her role as a homemaker. Her biggest enjoyments in life were her family. She loved to cook and bake, and was especially known for her bread and pumpkin doughnuts. You were always assured to walk into a kitchen full of freshly baked and canned foods. Alden and Catherine enjoyed each other's company- holding hands on their daily walks, drinking a hot cup of coffee and conversation. Catherine also had a love of travel, and her bags were always half packed and ready to leave at any given opportunity. Always taking family vacations when the kids were growing up and later traveling after retirement.

Catherine was a devout Catholic and member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church. She was a very active member of the Legion of Mary, Lady of Fatima Circle, and Altar society for St. Patrick's Catholic Church.
