Clarine M. Rebholz of Carmel passed away August 1, 2015 surrounded by family.
She was born September 17, 1929 in Platteville, Wisconsin. Clarine was the daughter of Leo & Hazel McGowan. She married Arnold F. Rebholz, of Columbus, Wisconsin on July 14, 1951.

For 3 1/2 years, she taught second grade at Hanmer Robbin School Platteville Wisconsin. She was a Member of St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church & the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Women's Club.

Her passions were her faith, family, and friends. We will miss her loving smile and devotion to family.

Our sincere sympathy on the loss of Clarine. We were privileged to know her and Arnie for several years at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church. They have now passed their "final exams", for which they studied many years. May they rest in heavenly peace together.

Sending sympathy and prayers from Atlanta Ga. So blessed to know Jeanne Martin as my dear friend, and truly amazed to see the beautiful family resemblance! May Aunt Clarine rest in the eternal joy and peace of our Lord, and may the words spoken by Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton..."His grace is sufficient for me"... provide much comfort and peace to all during this very sad time.
