 Evelyn P. Reinebold of South Bend, IN, passed away July 31, 2018 after a short illness.

Born in South Bend on May 3, 1930 to Roy and Gertrude Shelburg, Mrs. Reinebold married the late James L. Reinebold, Sr. August 20, 1955. Together they raised five children – Jim, Jr. (Cindy) of Atlanta, GA, Jeffrey (Leslie) of Vancouver, BC, Jamie of South Bend, Joel of South Bend, and Jonathan (Julie) of Tampa, FL.

Mrs. Reinebold graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School where she was a cheerleader and played clarinet in the high school band.

After Jim Sr completed his Korean War-era service, they settled in South Bend where she was employed by Studebaker Automotive, Bendix, and eventually The University of Notre Dame where she retired after fifteen years as Director of Student Housing.

Above all else, she prided herself on being a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

Mrs. Reinebold is survived by her children; a brother, Richard Shelburg (Lanie) of Niles, MI; eleven grandchildren; and twelve great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Ruthie. Mrs. Reinebold will be buried with her husband in the family plot at Sumption Prairie Cemetery in Greene Township.

Per her wishes, there will be a private graveside, family service.

Peace in peace dear friend. Thanks for all the laughs we shared over the years. Yes, I still have an accent and still cheer for the Yankees.

Joel, Jonathan and siblings,
With a heavy heart I read today of the passing of your dear mother. Because of our current visit to the Michiana area, my solace was that I could express my condolences in person and also add belated thoughts of your late dad a true friend. I can understand and appreciate your mothers’ wishes as she truly was one in a million. She and J.R. will be missed and I will never forget how much you dad did for my son John and me. Although we will not be able to attend that Pirate game we talked about he will be on my mind this coming August 20th. God be with all of you and may their memories be eternal.

To the Family of Evelyn Reinebold
I had the honor of knowing your Mother (and Father) as I was the Director of Facilities Services at the University of Notre Dame from 1988-98. I believe that we worked together much of her time at the Univeristy and she was a marvelous person, good friend, and professional Notre Dame Director. We shared a common interest in faithfully serving the Notre Dame students thru attempting to improve their quality of residential life. I retired from Notre Dame in 2001 and regret that we lost touch over the years, but I will fondly remember our mutual concern for the ND students. You all are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve her loss. Very Sincerely, David Woods
