Albertine was named for her mother Caroline's two favorite sisters: Albertine "Tena" Schafer Schulz and Louise "Lizzie" Schafer, of Cedar County, Iowa. She grew up in Denver. Her nickname was "Ginger Rogers," because her brother's name was "Will Rogers," - two popular entertainers of the 1930s. She married Joseph Rego and had three children. Most of her life was spent in Denver, Colorado, although after WWII she and Joe managed a small apartment for Marie and Dick (Ricardo) Lopez in Rock Island, Illinois. When Joe died she married Sam Steinmetz, who predeceased her. She was a very tasteful person when it came to decorating her lovely home, and loved flowers. She also volunteered many years at Denver's St. Luke's Hospital, and taught hospitality for a time at Emily Griffith Opportunity School in Denver. She will be missed and always loved.
