     Mary Ellen Groff Holland, 62, of Gap, Pennsylvania, went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, June 21, 2016. She passed at her home in Gap with family by her side after a 9 year long courageous battle against cancer.

    Mary Ellen was an elementary teacher at Burgard Elementary of Manheim Central School District for 23 years. Teaching and watching her students learn was her passion.

    Mary Ellen was known for her diehard love of “her” Pittsburgh Steelers. She enjoyed gardening, nature, and photography. More than anything, she cherished the time she spent with her children.

Groff; brother, Henry Clay Groff (Stasia); step-daughter, Nancy L. Holland and step-granddaughter, Faith L. Huber; former husband and lifelong friend, Kenneth J. Holland; and extended family and friends.
