Dorothy Fay Lux

September 3, 1942 — November 26, 2022

Concord, Massachusetts

Dorothy Fay (Goetz) Lux, 80, recently of Concord, MA, formerly of Waldwick, NJ passed away on Saturday, November 26, 2022.  She was the wife of the late Joseph Lux and sister of the late Carol Cleaver. She is survived by her daughter Janice Lux Moritz, son-in-law Keith Moritz and her grandsons Alexander, and Maxwell Moritz all of Concord.

Dorothy Fay Goetz.  She was raised in Kingston, NJ where she loved having fun with her sister Carol, selling raspberries, and walking through Princeton, the neighboring town.  Her father owned a bakery where she spent a lot of time greeting customers, selling sweets, and eating the leftovers.  

Upon graduation from Douglas College at Rutgers University, she began her 40+ tenure in Bergenfield High School in New Jersey as both a German and Spanish teacher.  This rewarding career afforded her the opportunity to continue traveling during the summer months with her sister.

In 1972 she married Joseph Lux and they settled into Waldwick, NJ where they would remain for 45 years.  Shortly after their daughter Janice was born, they purchased a second home in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania which would become their favorite weekend getaway for decades to follow.

After retirement, Dorothy enjoyed teaching ESL at the local library, birding, taking the bus to museums and events in NYC and traveling whenever possible.

In June of 2020, she relocated to the same neighborhood as her daughter’s family in Concord.  She enjoyed caring for her grandsons both before and after school each day.    

Family and friends will gather to honor and remember Dorothy for her memorial service on Thursday, December 22, 2022, at 2:00 pm in the Zion Lutheran Church, 96 E Allendale Road, Saddle River, NJ.  Services in Massachusetts will be private.
