Denville, NJ – Regina (Jeanie) Albohn passed away peacefully on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2020. Born in New York City on December 7, 1922, Regina was a 60-year resident of Hanover Township (NJ). She was predeceased in 2008 by her husband of 64 years, former New Jersey State Assemblyman Arthur R. Albohn, her parents Angela and Victor Geminiani, and her brother Mario Geminiani.
Regina loved her God, her family, her town and country. A member of the First Presbyterian Church of Whippany for over 60 years, she served as deacon, elder, Sunday school teacher and youth advisor. She also served for many years as Hanover Township’s chairperson for the American Cancer Society and as a volunteer for the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross.
Her primary occupation and mission were as a homemaker, wife and mother who was highly involved with her children’s education and activities. Regina enjoyed cooking and baking, and her home was always a warm and welcome place. She was the ultimate hostess for myriad events including family reunions, holiday gatherings, bridge games and the many campaign related events that took place at 29 Hilltop.
Regina played an active role throughout her husband’s many years of public service. Arthur’s most ardent supporter and an energetic campaigner who was known for remembering everyone’s name, she was always at his side as he represented both Hanover Township and his Morris County legislative district. Through this involvement, she developed a keen interest in the political process. The warm, sincere and lasting friendships she developed over the years brought her much joy throughout her life.
Regina was delighted to have been selected Woman of the Year by the Denville Republican Club, for promoting freedom, democracy and responsible government and working diligently to elect local Republican candidates.
An avid bridge player, Regina was recognized for her prowess at the bridge table, and maintained the top of her game well into her nineties during her residence at The Oaks at Denville. She and Arthur traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean, and always looked forward to annual family vacations, mostly by car and all across the country, which brought new learning and experiences while exposing the entire family to all that is America.
Regina is survived by her three children, Adrienne Landgraf of Egg Harbor Township, NJ, Douglas of Grove City, Ohio, and Daniel (Nancy Woychik) of Morris Township. She is also survived by her grandsons, Max Landgraf IV (Antonia) of Westport, Connecticut, and Zachary Landgraf (Melissa) of Egg Harbor Township and her great grandchildren, Cole, Chase, Jack, Owen and Paisley Rose.
Burial will be at the historic Whippany Cemetery at the convenience of the family. A memorial service will be held at a later date pending the lifting of COVID restrictions.
Good Morning God
You are ushering in a brand new day, untouched and freshly new,
So I am here to ask you, God, if you’ll renew me too.
Forgive the many errors that I made yesterday,
And help me once again, dear God, to walk closer in thy way.
For I am well aware that I can’t make it on my own,
So take my hand and hold it tight, for I can’t walk alone.
