Born in Rockville, she was the daughter of the late Clifard L. and Lucie Galleher Howard. She also was the wife of the late John Philip Engle Jr.
Mrs. Engle was a graduate of the old Rockville High School, the Towson State Normal School and the University of Maryland.

Her father was elected high sheriff of Montgomery County in 1911, then served as deputy sheriff of the county.
In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Mrs. Engle was the sole librarian for the Gaithersburg Library. The family moved to Calvert County in 1952, and she became a first grade teacher and reading specialist at the Chesapeake Beach Elementary School where she then taught for 20 years. In 1994, she moved to the Aspenwood Retirement Home in Silver Spring.
She is survived by a daughter, Joy Engle Demas of Rockville; son, John P. Engle III of Summersville, W.Va.; four grandchildren, Timothy and Kathryn Demas and Erik and Matthew Engle; two sisters, Helen Howard Ireland of Plum Point and Jane Howard-Jasper of Bradenton, Fla.
