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.
