Ellen Coleman Robey, 85, a resident of Medford since 1956 who was transportation director for the Lenape Regional High School District from 1981 to 1991, died of heart failure Tuesday, July 22, at home.
Born in Philadelphia, Mrs. Robey graduated in 1947 from the John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls' High School and married in 1950.
She had no job in her first years of marriage, her son Michael said, because "she had to raise me; that was a full-time job."
Mrs. Robey became a part-time school bus driver for the Medford Township School District in 1961, he said.
In 1972, she began driving full time for the Lenape Regional High School District.
