This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Lillian Fitch Rehbock (1907-2011)

A painter, printmaker, art educator,  and long-time member of the Women Painters of Washington, Lillian Rehbock moved to Seattle in 1932 and joined the organization that year.  She has served as president and secretary, and living into the 21st century, had work continuously entered in their  exhibitions.  She also used her printmaking skills to create block-print calendars for the WPW.  Her style, influenced by teachers Hans Hofmann and Andre Lhote, is early modernist with elements of realism and abstraction.

Rehbock was born in Wilmette, Illinois, and from 1920 to 1924, attended New Trier High School in Winnetka.   (In 2004, at age 97, she donated to the school's Educational Foundation, her scrapbook, which detailed her high school student days.)

In 1929, she earned a B.S. degree in Art Education and Botany from Northwestern University and then returned to New Trier as an art teacher.  She headed a student project of carving linoleum inked block prints depicting various historical sites within the school's township, and one of her colleagues was so impressed that she had the prints reproduced in a limited edition of 200.  They remain a pictorial history of the Winnetka.

Rehbock later did graduate work at the University of Chicago and the University of Washington.  Further art study included the Art Institute of Chicago, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of California at Berkeley.  For many years, she was a substitute art teacher in Bothell, Washington.

Exhibition venues include the Art Institute of Chicago and the Seattle Art Museum.

Her later years are spent at Emerald Heights retirement community in Redmond, Washington near Seattle where she served as curator for the residents' art gallery and did watercolor painting.  In 2010, at age 103, she was still living at Emerald Heights and continued to be part of the lives of her four children, five grandchildren and six great grandchildren.

Mrs. Rehbock passed away on May 29, 2011.
