Karen Capanna Obituary | Condolences | Gallery Karen Capanna Obituary Karen Capanna Karen Capanna passed away on Sunday, July 20, 2014, at the age of 77. Karen''s accomplishments and achievements in life are far too great to count. She was a caring and sdevoted counselor to those in need, a small-business owner with her husband, partner and best friend, Robert Capanna and she was the proud, loving and indefatigable mother of five, grandmother of seven, and great-grandmother of four. The amount of empathy and compassion she showed not only to her family, but to everyone in her life, particularly to those in great need, is nothing short of remarkable. Her arms and doors were always open. She listened without judgment and taught without condescension. She loved a good joke no matter how many times she had heard it before, and she could make anyone laugh. Her spirit lives on in the hearts of the countless lives she has touched. Her family and loved ones are forever affected by the example she set, our paths guided by her light. She has taught us how to live a good life, and she will be greatly missed.
