Dorothy T. Schultz, a former environmental engineer who had worked for the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt and later for Howard County, died Jan. 20 of complications from multiple sclerosis at St. Elizabeth's Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Southwest Baltimore.

The longtime Glenwood resident was 61.

Dorothy Toohey was born in Baltimore and raised in Roland Park. She was a 1971 graduate of Notre Dame Preparatory School and earned a bachelor's degree from Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia.

After earning a master's degree in environmental engineering from the Johns Hopkins University, Mrs. Schultz went to work for General Electric Corp. as a project monitor on the Earth Resources Technology Satellite program at NASA's Goddard facility.

She later worked for the Howard County Bureau of Environmental Services before retiring in the early 1990s.

Until being stricken with multiple sclerosis some years ago, Mrs. Schultz enjoyed backpacking, caving and camping in the Mid-Atlantic states with her family.

She also was a silk-screen painter and a watercolorist, and sang with the Columbia Pro Cantare Chorus.

Mrs. Schultz was a communicant of St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church in Ellicott City, where a Mass of Christian burial was offered Saturday.

Surviving are her husband of 36 years, H. Lee Schultz III; a son, Andrew W. Schultz of Canton; a daughter, Jessica L. Scott of Timonium; her mother, Dorothy S. Toohey of Baltimore; two brothers, Frank W. Toohey and Robert J. Toohey, both of Baltimore; a sister, Mary Brent Buckett of Atlanta; and a grandson.
