Doris M. Albro, school bus driver

Doris M. Albro, a retired Harford County school bus driver, died Sunday of kidney failure at College Manor Nursing Home in Lutherville. She was 92.

The daughter of Walter G. Freeberger, a postal worker, and Henrietta Freeberger, a homemaker, Doris Marie Freeberger was born in Baltimore and raised in Carney.

After graduating in 1939 from Towson High School, she worked as a secretary for several Baltimore companies, including Lincoln Sales Group.

In 1944, she married Walter A. Albro Sr., who was a radioman in the Coast Guard. Two years later, she stopped working to raise her family, and in 1947 they moved to Northwood.

She and her husband moved in 1967 to Forest Hill, where she lived until 2002. She later lived with her son before moving to College Manor in 2011.

In 1969, Mrs. Albro went to work as a school bus driver for the Harford County Board of Education, a position she held until retiring in 1984.

Her husband, who retired from the Coast Guard as a chief petty officer and later worked as a civilian at the Curtis Bay Coast Guard Yard, died in 1982.

Mrs. Albro enjoyed cooking and quilting. She was a member of a bowling league and an aerobics class in Bel Air. She also had traveled throughout the United States and to England, Canada and Mexico.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at the Mitchell Wiedefeld Funeral Home, York and Overbrook roads, Rodgers Forge.

Mrs. Albro is survived by her son, Walter A. Albro Jr. of Rockville; four daughters, Linda Albro of Parkville, Joyce Albro-Laverty of Phippsburg, Maine, Deborah McMahon of Rochester, N.H., and Patricia Cazenas of Vienna, Va.; and five grandchildren.
