Arthur Paul
Reinemann

Reinemann, Arthur P.
Went Home to be with his Savior on Sunday, June 2, 2013, at the age of 96 years. Loving husband for 68 years of Elaine Reinemann (nee Meyer). Dear father of Mark (Wendy) Reinemann. He is also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends all of whom he loved and valued deeply.

Art and Elaine met at Christ Church in 1935 when Art, as a member of the Christ Church Athletic Club, spotted Elaine and asked her to be in the church play. Thus began a lifelong journey of many wonderful experiences and memories. They enjoyed golf together and played the game their entire lives. Art was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy at the end of World War II. In 1957, their son Mark came into their lives and soon Mark joined them on the fairways. Art spent his life in service to his Lord, as a leader at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, Wisconsin Lutheran High School and Wisconsin Lutheran Child and Family Service. He especially focused his time developing the next generation of church leaders. Art joined Allis-Chalmers (later Siemens Corporation) immediately after the war and worked there for 37 years before retiring. He truly was a member of “the Greatest Generation” growing up in the Depression, fighting for his country, and helping to build post-war America.

The family wishes to extend special thanks to all the care givers and hospice workers from Rent-A-Daughter, Always Best Care, and Aurora VNA Home Hospice. The family also wishes to extend an extra special thanks to Pastor Joel Jaeger of Christ Church.

Visitation Tuesday, June 4 from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM at the Funeral Home and Wednesday from 10:00 AM until 11:00 AM at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, 2235 W. Greenfield Ave., followed by the Funeral Service at 11:00 AM. Interment Good Hope Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Reinemann Scholarship Fund at Wisconsin Lutheran High School, or to Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church are appreciated.

Mark & Wendy: Although I don’t think I ever met Arthur P. Reinemann…I often heard you talk about him. One time you were concerned, as we were hitting balls on the range, when he called you and appeared to be in somewhat of an excited stage….and all he wanted was your advice on purchasing a new automobile. It’ s nice when a father is willing to share his “concerns” with a son. When reading his OB he was really a pillar of the community…much to be proud of. My father first worked for Allis Chalmers when we moved to Milwaukee in 1943…and many of my friends were associated with AC since we grew up in West Allis. Please accept Diane and my condolences…but wonderful memories are what’s most important…and I’m sure you have a boatload of them to remember for years to come. Regards: Gene & Diane Haas

Mark,

Barbara saved the obituaries from last Tuesday’s paper so that I might know of your father’s passing. You wrote a beautiful remembrance. We send our sympathies to you and your family.
