Holly Elaine McGruder, the youngest daughter of the late Carroll L. and Priscilla M. McGruder, has passed away. She was 38 years-old. Both Carroll and Priscilla were part of the Southern Gospel Group The McGruders.
For the past 15, the McGruders have gained recognition for their music ministry, which is founded in faith, fashioned by anointing, and fueled by spiritual fire. From the farmlands of Indiana in the 70's through Idaho and on to Missouri, the McGruders goal has always remained the same "to lift up Jesus Christ through the message of the song."
Holly died Monday afternoon in Kennett and the cause of death has not been determined at this time. Her siblings, Eric McGruder and Shawnee McGruder Trowbridge have expressed their heartfelt appreciation for all of the love and prayers extended to them and their families during this difficult time. They are also requesting privacy as they make arrangements for a private memorial service honoring Holly's life.
Kevin McManus states, "The family is leaning on their faith in God during this difficult time and requests your continued prayers for all who were touched by Holly's life."
