She was born Sept. 16, 1924, to Lawrence and Erna (Braun) Rehman of Lorain, Ohio. Aline attended Amherst High School and graduated in 1941, and she later attended Lorain Business College.

She was a long-time member of St. Paul Lutheran Church of Napoleon.

Aline loved to play the organ. She began being an organist for churches in 1954; she played for St. Petri Lutheran Church of Toledo for 17 years. Once she retired, she went on to serve other local churches in Napoleon, such as the First Presbyterian Church, from 1990-2007.
