Dorothy H. Engle

Dorothy Howard Engle, 85, formerly of Gaithersburg, died Dec. 7 at Layhill Center in Silver Spring.

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 teaching career began in Montgomery County where her mother taught in a one-room school and where her daughter also eventually taught. 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.

Graveside services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 29 at the Darnestown Presbyterian Church, 15120 Turkey Foot Road, Darnestown. Pumphrey Funeral Home in Rockville is handling the arrangements.

Memorial donations can be made to the Washington National Cathedral, Massachusetts and Wisconsin avenues, Washington, D.C. 20016; The Barker Foundation, 7945 MacArthur Blvd., Suite 206, Cabin John, Md. 20818; or a charity of choice.
