Jean P. Passarelli, a retired college library worker, died of breast cancer Friday at Heart Homes, a Linthicum assisted-living facility. The Roland Park resident was 72.

Born Jean Prince in Cape Town, South Africa, she moved with her family to Hammersmith, England.

After her 1957 marriage to Paul Parish, the couple moved to Owensboro, Ky., and then to Baltimore in the 1960s. They were later divorced.

Her husband of 27 years, John Passarelli, former construction manager for the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, died in 2003.

From 1985 until her retirement in 2003, Mrs. Passarelli worked as a periodical manager in the Loyola-Notre Dame college library in North Baltimore.

She enjoyed knitting, reading and spending winters at Marco Island, Fla.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Jan. 13 at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, 1900 St. Paul St.

Survivors include a daughter, Diedre L. Parish of White Marsh; and two sisters, Faith Morris of Surrey, England, and Lorna Wilson of Karrinyup, Australia.
