January 21, 1957 – January 19, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Carla Kleinholz, a cherished mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. With a deep sense of loss, we remember her vibrant spirit, unwavering love, and countless contributions to the lives she touched. Carla’s journey in this world came to an end on the 19th of January, 2024, leaving behind a legacy that will forever resonate in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

Born on January 21, 1957, in Cincinnati, Ohio, Carla was a proud Ohioan throughout her life. She dedicated her academic pursuits and earned a Bachelor’s Degree, honing her skills for a fruitful professional career in the administrative field, specifically in healthcare. Carla’s unwavering commitment and dedication to her work impacted the lives of countless individuals, and her industrious spirit will be remembered by all.

Carla’s role as a mother was deeply cherished. Her son, Steven Kleinholz, was her pride and joy. Together, they shared a bond that transcended lifetime, filled with love, support, and shared memories. Carla’s nurturing nature extended to her role as a grandmother, where she found immense joy and fulfillment in the presence of her beloved grandchildren, Austin and Sutton. Their laughter and love brought light and warmth to Carla’s life, and her legacy will undoubtedly live on through the lives of these future generations.

In her leisure time, Carla found delight in the simple pleasures of life. Shopping brought her joy, whether it was exploring local boutiques or discovering hidden gems in her beloved city of Cincinnati. Her infectious enthusiasm and zest for life will forever serve as a reminder to embrace the little joys that surround us every day.

Carla is survived by her son Steven (Heather) Kleinholz, grandchildren Austin and Sutton, and siblings James Schaefer, Donald Schaefer, and Michael Clark.

“Carla was a sweet soul to work with. She was quiet, but very wise and witty. We would chat about my kids and her grandbabies and that brought her joy. Thanks for everything and rest in peace Carla! Matt”

“To the family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I worked with Carla at CCHMC for almost 24 years…. wow time flies, it does not seem that long. I will miss reaching out to her on work related accounts and she would also reach out to me on certain accounts. I will miss her catching me up on all the CCHMC news (she used to sit near the kitchenette at lunch and get caught up on all the news and then get catch me up). She and I had a mutual love of Hardees cinnamon and raisin biscuits and talked many times about Franklin Covey planners. I saw a new Mickey Mouse watch recently and immediately thought of her… she loved her Mickey Mouse. I will miss talking to her. I was glad to have visited with her right before Christmas.”

“Carla was one of the most interesting people I have met – while we met at work, her love of crafting (whatever captured her passion – jewelry making, paper crafting, quilling) made a fantastic bond between us. While seeming to be a very quiet person, she had a sharp wittiness about her and could always make me laugh. I will miss you, my friend and hope to craft with you when I meet you on the other side. Blessings.”
