Helen J. Capodice passed away Sunday July 23, 2023 at her home at the age of 88.
She was born on February 11, 1935 to the late Stanley and Josephine Olewinski in Chicago, Illinois.
On April 14, 1956 she married Robert Capodice at Our Lady of the Ridge Catholic Church in Chicago. She enjoyed her secretarial position at Ford Motor Corporation, having made lifelong friends with many of her coworkers. In her free time she took pride in her sewing skills, making clothes for her children. Those that knew Helen, and her passion to read, could say she took up residence at the Antigo Public Library.
In more recent years, Helen enjoyed reading, riding in her son's convertible, and spending time with her new found community at The Pines in Weston.
Helen is survived by four daughters; Linda (Fred) Hendler, Minocqua, WI., Debbie Capodice, Azusa, CA., Donna (Joe) Murray, Panama City Beach, FL., and Lisa (Mark) Sidener, Lake Dallas, TX. Four sons; Matthew (Luanne) Capodice, Weston, WI., Mark Capodice, Cumming, GA., Frank Capodice, Antigo, WI., and John Capodice, Whittier, CA. Seven grandchildren; Kirsten (Matt) Frane, Amber Rogatzki, J.J. (Kelly) Murray, Lindsey (Troy) Pope, Rachel Capodice, Cara Capodice, Samantha (Benjamin) Bishop, and ten great grandchildren. In addition to her parents, Helen was preceded in death by her husband, Robert, brothers Stanley and Walter.
In accordance with Helen's wishes, a private service will be held for the immediate family.
