Marguerite Capodanno, 92, passed away after a 10 year battle with Alzheimer's.
Marguerite graduated from St. Paul's Commercial School and began working for three psychiatrists before she married and became a mother and homemaker. She was a longtime member of St. Anthony of Padua Church and the St. Thomas Senior Center. Marguerite always volunteered and graciously took care of friends and neighbors in need of her help, and was endlessly devoted to her family, for which she possessed the deepest adoration. Marguerite moved from Wilmington to Pennsylvania in 2003, later moving to New Jersey in 2004. In May 2007, she was placed in the Genesis Nursing Home in Voorhees, NJ. Marguerite was predeceased by her husband, Vincent Capodanno. She is survived by her 3 children, Johann Capodanno of Erial, NJ, Thomas Capodanno, and Patricia Capodanno, both of New Castle, DE. She was a loving grandmother to 8 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
