Doris K. Stotz

December 13, 1991

Doris K. Stotz, librarian at St. Timothy's School since 1984 and former children's librarian in both the city and Baltimore County, died Dec. 5 of cancer at her home on Pickett Garth in Lutherville.

Mrs. Stotz, who was 62, had earlier worked for the Baltimore County Public Library, where she headed children's services from 1960 until 1962 and later did part-time work.

She also had been a children's librarian at the Enoch Pratt Free Library from 1952 until 1960.

She was a former editor of Top of the News, the journal of the Children's Division of the American Library Association, and was active on several of the association's national committees.

She conducted several fund-raising bazaars for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and served on the Church Council of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Lutherville and on the board of Lutheran Social Services of Maryland.

The former Doris Kruger was a native of New York City and a graduate of Queen's College there.

She is survived by her husband, William H. Stotz, an engineer for the Bendix Communications Division in Towson; two sons, James W. and David K. Stotz, both of Lutherville; a daughter, Elisabeth A. Stotz of Lutherville; and a brother, Herbert O. Kruger of Elmsford, N.Y.

A memorial service was held yesterday at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, and the family suggested that memorial contributions could be made to the church or to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
