Frank & Sophia Auberger

Sophia, Elder Class of 1927, and her late husband Frank, Elder Class of 1928, first met as neighbors having grown up in Price Hill together.  They both attended Elder but didn’t start dating until the early 1930’s and they were wed in June of 1937 at St. Lawrence Church.  Sophie and Frank worked together at a local bank for years and they never had any children.  When Frank passed away in 1962 Sophie started a new chapter in her life and went on to live to be 105 years old.  Sophie was instrumental in starting the Over 50 Dinner Dance for those Elder alumni who have been out of Elder for 50 years or more.  This concept continues today but rather as a Mass and brunch.  The Frank & Sophia Auberger Scholarship (originally the Frank Auberger Scholarship) was established in 1985.
