Gloria Cappuccio (nee Donio), 94, of Hammonton passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on Wednesday, October 27, 2021.
Born in Hammonton she was a lifelong resident of the Rosedale and Hammonton area. Gloria was a graduate of St. Joseph’s High School in Hammonton. She was a faithful member of St. Martin De Porres R.C. Church, and later St. Mary of Mt. Carmel Parish both in Hammonton. She was truly dedicated to caring for her family, and she enjoyed Sunday morning coffee with family. She was constantly cooking for the entire family, from dinner, to the holidays and baking everyone’s favorite cakes, pies and other treats. You couldn’t visit her home without having a scone, cookie or a piece of cake. She loved getting visits from her many great-grandchildren and would make them milkshakes with all the ice cream flavors in her freezer. With 13 older siblings, Gloria was always running around taking care of everyone. Gloria’s other pleasure was going to the casino. She and her husband Joe would take a few trips a week to the casino and loved spending the day playing the slots.
She is predeceased by her beloved husband of 65 years, Joseph F. Cappuccio, and her 13 siblings.
She is survived by her children, Paula Cappuccio, Joseph F. Cappuccio II (Kim), Robert Cappuccio (Jackie), and Stephen Cappuccio (Linda); her grandchildren, Frank Olivo, Stephanie Olivo (Chris Vigale), Kristen LeBeau (Derek), Melissa Yearicks (Christopher), Joseph Cappuccio III (Katie), Robert Cappuccio Jr. (Danielle), Stephen Cappuccio II (Coree) and Anthony Cappuccio (Deanne Elkin); and 10 great-grandchildren.
