Twila DeMeio Groff (Age 92) of Frederick, Maryland formerly of The Villages, Florida and Ocean Pines and Bethesda, Maryland passed away peacefully on April 26, 2021.
Twila was born August 9, 1928 in Greensburg, Pennsylvania to Alice and John DeMeio, where she grew up. She attended Seton Hill in Greensburg through her high school years then moved to Washington D.C. to attend secretarial school and join the workforce. While in Washington D.C. she met her husband Emory Groff, Jr. They shared a very full life together for 47 years before Emory passed away in 1996.
Twila was an active member of St. Bartholomew’s Catholic Church in Bethesda, MD for many years while raising her family.
She spent many years as a real estate agent in Bethesda and also worked at NIH, before she and Emory retired to Ocean Pines, MD. After Emory died, she moved to The Villages in Florida and lived there for 15 years making lots of friends and getting involved in The Villages. She enjoyed many activities over the years such as bowling and golf, was an avid bridge player and loved family get togethers. Her last few years were spent living comfortably at Country Meadows in Frederick, MD.
Twila is survived by daughters Kathy Groff Aitcheson (Don) of Fort Mill, SC, Nancie Groff Mackintosh (Andy) of Adamstown, MD, her son Steve Groff (Sharon) of Darnestown, MD, and daughter-in-law Sandy Groff (son David Groff deceased) of Millsboro, DE.
