Lee, and they had two children. They later divorced, and in 1977, Cathy married Lewis Dielman in Havre. The couple lived on the farm outside of Box Elder for a time before moving into Box Elder, where they remained until her death. Cathy was a wonderful wife, caring for her husband and home while he farmed and worked at the Box Elder bus garage. She often acted as a second chaperone on school bus trips. Cathy also kept busy acting as the secretary/treasurer for the Hi-Line Antique Auto Club, as the call lady for the Big Sky Auto Club, and as a dispatcher for the Box Elder Volunteer Fire Department.
