Margaret Rose Giamo ReBell

Margaret Rose Giamo ReBell, our family matriarch, entered into heaven on the morning of June 26, 2018 in Susanville, Ca.

Margaret was born in Cleveland, Ohio on August 3, 1922 to Maria Bruno Giamo and Benedetto Giamo. There she grew to love and learn all the wonderful traditions of her Italian family. Margaret was a wonderful cook who took delight in serving her Italian dishes and baking Italian cookies to share with her family and neighbors. As a young woman, she worked as a waitress in Cleveland’s Chef Boyardee restaurant, owned by Chef Boyardee himself. While dining, he asked exclusively for “Margarita” to be his waitress.

Margaret’s love for her family was the most cherished of all her gifts. She loved us all unconditionally, especially her husband, Raymond W. ReBell. Raymond, Marie and Ronald were born of their love. Together, they built a home in Warrensville Heights, Ohio, and lived there for many years before moving to Susanville to be near their boys and grandchildren. Many years were spent celebrating and enjoying each other’s company.

Margaret and Raymond traveled throughout Europe with their daughter and son-in-law, Marie and RIchard Evans. Margaret spoke fluent Italian and delighted in acting as their interpreter while touring through Italy.

Margaret is preceded in death by her husband Raymond W. ReBell, parents, Maria and Benedetto Giamo, brothers Nathan Giamo and Angelo Giamo, and sisters Angela Randazzo and Teresa Collova.

Margaret is survived by her three children Raymond O. (Rozanne) ReBell of Quincy, Marie (Richard) Evans of Naples, Florida, and Ronald (Susan) ReBell of Susanville, Ca.

She is also survived by her granddaughters Renee ReBell, Robyn ReBell, Jennifer (Danny) Meisenheimer and Lindsey Rae ReBell. Her surviving grandsons include Chad (Patti) Evans, Neil (Tammy) ReBell and Ryan(Ronni) ReBell.

Margaret was loved by thirteen great-grandchildren: Drew ReBell, Madalyn ReBell, Bridget ReBell, Michaela ReBell, Zachary Miller, Nathan Miller, Megan Meisenheimer, Will Meisenheimer, Leila Evans, Roman Evans, Raymond C. ReBell, Nicolette ReBell and Madison Ray ReBell.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 4:00 pm at Waltons Colonial Mortuary in Susanville. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Lassen Nursing and Rehabilitation Resident Activity Fund 2005 River St. Susanville, Ca. 96130 in Margaret’s memory.

The family of Margaret wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the entire staff of Lassen Nursing. While she was a patient there, she received the most loving care imaginable. We are forever grateful for their patience, guidance and hearts of gold.
