Albert Einstein Sr.

College administrator

Albert B. Einstein Sr., a Baltimore college administrator for 20 years, died Tuesday of kidney failure in Mercer Island, Wash. He was 86.

Mr. Einstein was born and reared in Catonsville, where he graduated from Catonsville High School. He moved to Washington 10 years ago, after having lived in Baltimore since 1946.

Mr. Einstein worked for the now defunct Eastern College in Baltimore for 20 years as an administrative vice president until his retirement in 1970. He was married for 53 years to the former Janet E. Manzer, who died in 1989.

The name similarity between himself and the other Albert Einstein -- the author of the theory of relativity and possibly the 20th century's greatest genius -- did not faze him, said his son, Albert B. Einstein Jr., of Tampa, Fla.

"He took it right in stride," the son said.

A memorial service was planned for today in Mercer Island.

In addition to his son, survivors include a brother, Jacob Einstein of Bethesda; and four grandchildren.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Virginia Mason Foundation, P.O. Box 900, Seattle, Wash., 98111, or the Evergreen Hospice Foundation, 12040 128th St., Kirkland, Wash., 98034.

Dr. Young E. Chun

VA internist

Dr. Young E. Chun, who was an internist at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Baltimore in the 1960s, died Thursday of acute subdural hematoma, a severe bruise of the brain, at University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore. He was 86.

A native of the Republic of Korea, Dr. Chun lived in Westminster. He had been chief of medical services at the Bath VA Center in Bath, N.Y., before he retired in 1983.

Services were held yesterday at Ebenezer United Methodist Church in Sykesville.

Dr. Chun is survived by his wife of 27 years, the former Duksil Suh; a son, Wang Sub Chun of Korea; two daughters, Chung Sook Chang of Kansas City and Yangsook Han of Albany, N.Y.; 10 grandchildren; and

two great-grandchildren.

Memorial donations may be made to Ebenezer UM Church, 4911 Woodbine Road, Sykesville 21784.

Eleanor W. Canter

Registered nurse

Eleanor W. Canter, a registered nurse, died Oct. 14 at Stella Maris of complications of a stroke. She was 77.

The former Eleanor Warfield, a graduate of Notre Dame Preparatory School, became a registered nurse in 1939, after working at Church Home and Hospital in Baltimore for several years.

The Baltimore native was a 25-year resident of Roland Park before moving to Stella Maris in 1981. Her husband of 37 years, Levin J. Canter, died in 1978.

In the 1970s, Mrs. Canter was involved in Reach to Recovery, an American Cancer Society volunteer organization that helps mastectomy patients, after her own mastectomy.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Stella Maris Chapel, 2300 Dulaney Road, Towson.

She is survived by a daughter, Ann C. Wiles of Freeland; a son, Richard W. Canter of Charleston, W. Va.; a brother, Allen Warfield of Roland Park; and four grandchildren.

Memorial contributions may be made to Stella Maris.

Wesley P. Ashburn

BGE technician

Wesley P. Ashburn, a retired maintenance technician who worked more than 30 years for Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., died Friday of pneumonia at the Multimedical Nursing Center in Towson. He was 87.

He was a resident of the Kirkwood House on Loch Raven Boulevard before his illness forced him to move to the nursing center about a week ago.

In 1927, he and Margaret Weir were married. She died in 1969.

Born and educated in Galax, Va., he was a longtime resident of East Baltimore. An avid baseball fan who liked to follow the Orioles, he also enjoyed playing cards.
