Catherine may have died between 1915 and 1919. or they were divorced. I haven't looked for her son Alfred yet.
here is husband Howard in 1930:

1930 in Hawthorne, Passaic Co, NJ
Howard Ryerson, 37, first married at 26
Mary, 33, first married at 22
Harvey, 7
Evelyn C, 5 [named in Howard's obit]
mother in law Carrie Mackrell

1940 same household

That's what I've been thinking too.

They had a child in 1916 who only lived a couple of months.

I think the Alfred in the 1915 census is actually "Albert"

This would be them in 1920 census. Howard is now married to Mary MacKrell. If Albert is living with them, that seems to indicate that Catherine may have died.

1920 Census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M4YC-P85

This appears to be the death record for Albert in 1965.

CADI: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VPKG-Y8J

Albert's obit mentions a half brother Harvey and half sister Evelyn. This matches with the 1930 census.
