Paul H. Rehert, 77, owned several businesses

Paul H. Rehert, a former Baltimorean who owned various businesses, died of a heart attack Saturday at his West Palm Beach, Fla., residence. He was 77.

During the 1950s, Mr. Rehert owned the Strand 5-and-10-cent store in Dundalk, which he later converted to Strand Surplus in the 1960s. In the early 1970s, he owned and operated Brill's Market in Highlandtown.

The former Dundalk resident, who also owned a trucking company and pantyhose business, retired in 1985 and moved to Florida.

Born in East Baltimore, he left school during the Depression to help support his family.

"Because he was a child of the Depression, he tried his hand at a variety of businesses," said a brother, Isaac Rehert of Baltimore.

"He was very family oriented and loved sitting around reminiscing about the bad old days," the brother said.

During World War II, Paul Rehert served in the merchant marine on supply ships that sailed to Europe and South America. He was discharged as a second mate.

Services will be held at noon Thursday at Danzansky-Goldberg Memorial Chapels, 1170 Rockville Pike, Rockville.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, the former Rena Mendelson; a son, Mark Rehert of Silver Spring; another brother, Meyer S. Rehert of Baltimore; and two grandchildren.

Anna May Clark, 83, phone company bookkeeper

Anna May Clark, a retired telephone company bookkeeper and lifelong Davidsonville resident, died of heart failure Sunday at Westminster Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. She was 83.

Mrs. Clark joined Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. of Maryland as a telephone operator in 1942 and later became a bookkeeper in the utility's Main Street office in Annapolis. She retired in 1977.

The former Anna May Gardner was born and raised in Annapolis and graduated from high school there. In 1959, she married Clifford A. Clark Sr., who died in 1984.

She enjoyed crocheting and was a longtime communicant of All Hallows Episcopal Chapel, 864 W. Central Ave., Davidsonville, where services will be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

She is survived by a son, Daniel B. Clark of Hampstead; five grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
