Mary Jane Holle (nee Garheart) 89, of Ellicott City, Maryland passed away on May 8, 2020. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Edward St. Lawrence Holle, on October 5, 2010, and her dear sister, Catherine R. (nee Garheart) Rhoades, on April 11, 2019. Mary Jane leaves behind her loving children, Susan D. Holle and Michael E. Holle, daughter-in-law Nancy L. Holle, and two cherished granddaughters, Cailin A. Holle and Allison R. Holle. She is also survived by her wonderful niece, Cheryl Trent, and her family. Mary Jane was born at Women's Hospital in Baltimore City to Eva (nee Gosnell) Garheart and William Guy Garheart of Sykesville. She grew up in a converted one-room schoolhouse in Barrett, graduated from Sykesville High School, and worked as a secretary at a bank before meeting her beloved husband at a dance. They were married in 1953 and eventually settled in Ellicott City, where she raised their two children. She attended the Bard Avon School and subsequently worked at BGE, Channel 13, and Westinghouse. Living in the same home for over five decades in Ellicott City, she was an active member of Bethany United Methodist Church. She loved her neighbors dearly, often meeting them on her daily walks with her trusted dog, Duke. To her, everyone she met was a friend. Mary Jane was extremely proud of her granddaughters and shared their accomplishments with all. She was known for her boundless energy and was an avid tennis player, retiring at 86. She loved crabs, Elvis, country music, a good party, dancing the jitterbug, and making her family and friends laugh. Due to the current state and local restrictions, we will have a celebration of life at a later date. Details will be available on this website once scheduled. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to zachingagainstcancer.org.
