Selfless, loving, strong-willed, always smiling — Thursday, July 16, 2020, Jeanne Marie Saraceni, 61, of Taylors, South Carolina, died after a long battle with liver failure while camping with family in Beckley, West Virginia.

Jean retired from York School District as IT Coordinator. After living in New York for 59 years, Jeanne retired to Greenville then Taylors, South Carolina.
