Grace Rebein Obituary

Grace Julia Rebein, 87, a longtime resident of Charlottesville and Scottsville, Virginia, passed away peacefully in Charlottesville on February 16, 2024.

Grace was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in the New York City area. She attended the University of Miami and worked as a legal secretary in Sarasota, Florida where she met the love of her life, Robert L. Rebein.  Grace married Bob in Sarasota in 1960.  They moved to the Northern Virginia area and spent 31 years there until moving to Scottsville, Virginia in 1991.

Grace worked as a medical secretary and receptionist until her retirement. She was very active in education, volunteering, the Girl Scouts and various athletic organizations. Since her retirement, she enjoyed her time as a library volunteer in Scottsville, Virginia, a member of St. George Catholic Church and a volunteer with Bread of Life.

Grace loved to travel, camp in the Shenandoah mountains and take annual trips to Ocean City, Maryland.  She enjoyed cooking, bird watching, playing games with her grandchildren and spending time with her friends playing bingo at The Independence in Charlottesville. Grace was generous and honest.  Above all, she devoted her life to what gave her the greatest joy — her loving family.

Grace and Bob were blessed to celebrate 50 years of marriage together. Bob preceded her in death in 2011.  Their beloved son, Mark J. Rebein, passed away in 2017.  Grace was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and is survived by her two daughters, Cynthia A. Myers and her husband Fred and Karen L. McGann and her husband Kenneth; one son Scott F. Rebein and his wife Lori; and Mark’s wife, Julia A. Rebein; 13 grandchildren-David and Jaclyn; Jennifer, Taylor, Connor, and Christopher; Emma, Michael, James, Matthew, and John; Hunter and Ellyn; and five great-grandchildren-Landon and Mackenzie, Lincoln, Olivia, and Madeline.  She is also survived by her sister-in-law K. Phillys Bartels, and her brother Frank Herbert and his wife, Sheri. Her second husband, David Maddox, also survives Grace.
