Geraldine Lillian (Stiles) Rhine

Rhine, Geraldine Obit PhotoGeraldine Lillian (Stiles) Rhine, age 78, of Belltown Road in Clarington, PA, passed away surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, June 11, 2016, at her home.

She was born on January 9, 1938, to the late Blair M. and Ruby E. (Taylor) Stiles, in Homer City, PA. On March 9, 1957, she married Donald C. Rhine; Donald precedes her in passing.

Throughout her life she primarily played the role of homemaker for her family, and she was very good at it. She was fun loving and enjoyed her grandchildren. She would gather them up and take them for rides in her golf cart into “downtown Clarington.” They loved to spend time with their “Grandmo.” Geraldine was very creative, a true artist in her heart. Those attributes showed in the way she cared for her flower gardens and how beautiful she kept her yard. A white farm house was her achieved dream that she was living in Clarington, she enjoyed her neighbors and the closeness she felt while being a part of that community. She was very funny, kind, and generous, all who knew her will truly feel the sorrow of loving and missing her.

Geraldine is survived by 3 daughters, Gail (Tom) Twigg, Chrissy (Roger) Smith, Niki Yard; 2 sisters, Shirley (Jim) Miller, Sharon (Dave) Fox, Ben (Judy) Stiles, Denny (Linda) Stiles; 4 granddaughters, Jamie, Cristi, Tina, Caitlin; 3 grandsons, Noah, Jacob, Jeremiah; 3 great-granddaughters, Aniya, Claire, Ella; 2 great-grandsons; Logan and Camryn; her wonderful hospice nurse, Mary; and her dear friends, Martha, Duane, Kathy, Glenn.

In addition to her husband and parents she is preceded in death by 1 brother, Ronald Stiles; and 1 granddaughter, Amber Yard.

A private family memorial service will be held in her honor on Saturday, June 18, 2016. Arrangements are under the direction of the McKinney – d’Argy Funeral Home, Ltd, 345 Main St., Brookville PA, 15825.

Memorial contributions may be made in her name to the Clarion-Forest Visiting Nurses Association & Hospice, 305 Main St., Knox PA, 16232.
