Mary Jane Baciocco
November 21, 1931 – June 30, 2018
Jane Baciocco died peacefully on June 30, 2018. She was a long time resident of Mt Pleasant SC and more recently lived in Cary, NC.
Jane was born November 21, 1931, and raised in Coronado, California. She married the late Albert Joseph Baciocco, Jr, in 1955. Jane was a career Navy wife and an awesome mother tov her four children David, Debi, Andy and Susan. Jane greatly enjoyed her children and grandchildren, her porch swing, marsh breezes and the sound of children at play…not to mention milkshakes, chocolate chip cookies and a cold glass of chardonnay. A true rock for her family, offering always the best advice… and reminding us “not to borrow trouble” or “Don’t worry, dear”. Jane was a devout Catholic, with an incredible faith which inspired and comforted those close to her and rippled to those close to them. She had an incredible zest for life! Right to the end, she showed her desire to use the gifts God had given her. She made an incredible difference in this world, just by being in it.
Jane is survived by her four children, nine grandchildren, and a number of other loving relatives and close friends.
A Funeral Mass will be held at the Naval Academy Chapel, Annapolis, Maryland, on July 24, 2018 at 10:30am, followed by a graveside service. There will be a reception after the services at the Naval Academy Club.
In Lieu of Flowers, the Baciocco Family requests that memorial donations be made in Jane’s honor to a hospice organization in your community.

Dear David, Deb, Andy and Susan,
We are thinking about all of you and remembering the many good times the Hills shared with the Baciocco family. Our hearts are heavy, but know our beloved Janie is in a better place, and is with your dad. Your mom was the BEST. She took me under her wing from the time I stayed at your home in Pascagoula, Mississippi, after Virg reported to the USS Barb on April 10, 1963. Virg and I became engaged that summer, during my visit, and we considered, and continue to consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have been a part of the WONDERFUL Barb Wardroom. Janie remained a very good, close friend through our many years living near by in Hawaii, Charleston, SC, Groton, CT., and the suburbs of Washington D.C. We watched you four grow up from wee babes to become the amazing adults you are today.
We have always felt like you four were part of our family, and want you all to know that we will always feel that way, and are available for a chat or a hug, anytime they are needed.
Two glasses of chilled Chardonnay, in our very best Crystal, will be raised in her honor tonight. We will be thinking about all of you Tuesday morning. Know that our hearts will be there in Annapolis with you.
Our love to each of you and your families.

For the Baciocco family, please accept our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mom. And please accept as well my particular appreciation for the bit of your parents you’ve shared with me. Thank you.
I met Janie in April 1963 in Pascagoula Mississippi. (VADM) Al was my XO in BARB. We’ve over the years been in touch only now and then - not often enough - but invariably Janie was the same generous, gracious, engaging person I met then. We were young then – it was a time when our professional and family lives were intersecting sets. She and Al were exemplary family – the kind you never let willingly go. Your mother made it so.

I was a young submarine wife when Admiral Baciocco was a Squadron commander. Janie kindly invited the Submarine Officer’s Wives Club for a reception at their Panama house. Janie was always so warm and welcoming to us. She made us all feel special and as if she was really glad we were there. She was a “lady” in the truest sense of that word and thus a wonderful role model for a young wife. When we moved back to Charleston five years ago it was a gift for Charlie and I to able to socialize with Janie and Admiral B again. We miss them both a great deal! My prayers are offered on your behalf for comfort and peace during this time of grief and loss. Sincerely, Karen Young
