She met her future husband, Desmond Korth, while attending a dance. On September 1, 1941 Tess and Des were united in marriage at St. Frances de Chantal Catholic Church in Randolph. The couple made their home on farms in rural Coleridge, Nebraska and then rural Randolph. In 1970, they moved to a farm outside of Wilmont, Minnesota.
