Obituary of Dora Maria Albano

Dora Maria Albano was called home on May 20, 2024 to be blessed with eternal rest. She was at her home in Glen Mills, PA which she had shared with her beloved husband Fred until his passing in 2021. Her family was beside her.

Meeting through mutual friends, Dora and Fred had a relationship that spanned 67 married years. Over those years their union was, for their family, an enviable model of spousal devotion. They weathered life’s struggles and relished its joys closely beside each other; truly best friends and each other’s rock. She missed him dearly.

Dora was born on June 1, 1930 in Hackensack, New Jersey and was raised there until moving to Bedford, NY upon marriage. She lived and raised her family in Bedford until 2007 when she and Fred moved to her current home in Glen Mills, PA. She was a homebody who came from humble beginnings, determined to give her children opportunities she hadn’t had. She was selfless towards that end and incredibly resourceful. To see her children and grandchildren progress towards her dream of education brought her great happiness and pride.

Dora had an astute mind. After the children had grown she took a solidly supportive role in the family electrical contracting business until retirement. Daily Sudoku, handling all of her own affairs and a love of jigsaw puzzles kept her sharp into her nineties. Over the years she enjoyed crochet, needle work and mostly her sewing projects. She could repair or repurpose anything with a needle and thread and left her children with particularly fun memories of creative Halloween costumes.

Dora loved to spend time at her Poconos home, sharing time with Fred in his fishing boat, gathering family for summer weeks together, and just spending an afternoon on the porch with an ever-present puzzle. It was the respite she and Fred counted on to “get away” in the hectic years and sustain them in peaceful surroundings in the twilight years.

She is the daughter of Giovanni and Rosa Lagomarsino, being predeceased by them, her brother Charlie Lagomarsino and sister-in-law Peggy. Also she is predeceased by brother-in-law and sister-in-law Ted and Anita Albano and brother-in-law and sister-in-law Paul and Mary Lou (Albano) Paulli.

Dora leaves the legacy of her children Dianne Siemon (John), Robert Albano (Ellen Bowen) Donna Osmon (Michael) and Arlene Fagans. She is also survived by her cherished grandchildren Dana Siemon Scarpino (John), JT Siemon (Jeanette), Timothy, Nicholas and Deanna Osmon, Weston and Allison Fagans and sweet great-granddaughter Liliana Scarpino. There are also many nieces, nephews and cousins who made her life complete. All are beneficiaries of her strong faith and constant prayers. We will miss her.

Friends will be received on Wednesday, May 29 at Clark Associates Funeral Home, 4 Woods Bridge Rd. Katonah, NY from 4 - 8pm. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 am on Thursday, May 30 at St. Patrick’s Church, Bedford, NY. Interment will follow at Bedford Union Cemetery, Bedford NY.
