Obituary for Janet L. Groff (Haldeman)
Janet L. Groff, 84, formerly of Manheim and Lititz, PA, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Thursday morning, July 20, 2017 at Brethren Village in Lancaster. Born in Rapho Twp., Lancaster County, she was the daughter of the late John H. and Ida May Flory Haldeman. She was the loving wife of the late William D. Groff for 61 years before his passing in 2016.
Janet was a member of Calvary Church in Lancaster where she had served as a nursery helper and on the visitation ministry team. She was a 1951 graduate of the former Manheim High School. Although she was employed as a secretary by various companies in the Manheim area, her favorite job was working with poultry on their family farm.
In addition to spending time at the beach and swimming, Janet and Bill enjoyed doing things with other couples, such as playing miniature golf and playing games. However, most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family.
