Capy’s other family through her husband Tom: “kids” Ann and Scott, and her grandchildren Nic and Jordan, miss her terribly. She was a bright light in our lives.

I did not know Capy, but her legacy lives with me. I was named after her. My mother is from Phillips, Texas and said she always saw Capy’s name in the paper, as she was recognized for her achievements. I was born in 1975, and while my mom spelled my name differently, I always gave credit to Capy for my name. Ironically, I would have met her for the first time at our Mckinney DAR meeting where she was going to be introduced. I am saddened I will not be able to shake her hand for the first time. Please accept my deepest sympathy for her loss. She leaves a lasting legacy, however and I am thankful for her life story. Blessings.

When I met Capy at a WTHA meeting she was so vivacious and full of life and very kind to me as a newbie in the WTHA at the time. She will be missed. My condolences to Tom and the rest of the family.
