Dorothy Josephine Lengel, of Newtown, CT, formerly of Plymouth, NH and Bethel, CT, went home to God on January 25, 2020. Dorothy was born on May 7, 1929 to Albert and Louise (Casper) Traub in Trumbull, CT where she spent her childhood.

Dorothy was working at Commercial Credit in Danbury where she met George Andrew Lengel. They married in 1952 and lived in Bethel, CT for forty years while raising their four children. Upon retirement, they moved to Plymouth, NH in 1995.

It was in Plymouth that Dorothy blossomed. She became active in St. Matthew’s Catholic church as a lector and Eucharistic minister. She baked numerous cakes, cookies and muffins for many coffee hours, bereavement lunches and Plymouth State College students. Her chocolate cake was a particular favorite as was her nutroll, which she made at Christmas.

Later in life, Dorothy became an avid Patriots football fan, experiencing a game at Gillette Stadium and attending the Super Bowl parade in 2019. Dorothy also loved to travel visiting many European cities including Rome and the Vatican. A highlight of her life was seeing Pope Francis when he visited Philadelphia in 2015.

Dorothy was predeceased by her husband George and her brothers Albert, Walter, and Edward and her sister Edna. Dorothy is survived by her four children, Richard Lengel and wife Lisa of Newtown, CT, Susan Lengel of Plymouth, NH, Thomas Lengel and wife Disty of Devon, PA and Christine Quistberg and husband Paul of Boston, MA, twelve grandchildren, Jonathan, Brian, Megan, Timothy, Christine, Aaron, Matthew, David, Michael, Amy, Brian and Andrew, and ten great grandchildren Faith, Jacklyn, Ryder, Brody, Jaxson, Annabelle, Delaney, Declan, Madison and Hailey and many nieces and nephews.

A funeral mass will be held at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Langdon St. Plymouth, NH on Saturday, February 1 at 9:00 a.m. The Reverend Leo LeBlanc, pastor, will officiate. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the church that she loved, Trinity Holy Parish, 11 School St. Plymouth, NH 03264. The Mayhew Funeral Home in Plymouth, NH is in charge of the arrangements.

Private Condolence


Posted at 12:02pm
My condolences to the family. When loosing a loved one it can be unbearable. That is why God has provided scriptures in the Bible to help ones cope with the loss. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to "swallow up death forever." He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time (

Every time my Dad would bid too high in pinochle she was always there to bring him back down to earth. I will never forget all of the hands we played and the laughs we shared playing together as a family - Mike
