Dorothy Williams Capria, 87, passed peacefully on January 21 surrounded by the love of her children.
She was born to Frank Williams & Evelyn Sewell-Law on May 10, 1931. She was raised on a beautiful farm in Panther Lake, NY.
She was sister to Verna Faulkner (Stanley), Helen Cornell (Richard), Francis Moran (William), and her twin brother Donald Williams. She is survived by her loving “sister” in-law Joan Williams. Dorothy was also the beloved aunt to numerous nieces and nephews by relation and many others by choice. Dorothy left her five children with many happy memories and her deep abiding love - Stephen Capria, Julie Zahn (Dave), Robert Capria (Maria), Allynn Toney (Cris) and Suzanne Cunningham (Larry).
She adored her nine grandchildren, spending many hours at their individual activities, hunting for treasures and sharing an ice cream. Her four great grandchildren were blessed to know her love and care, even throughout her last days.
Formally married to Robert H. Capria, Dorothy continued to hold the Capria family in her heart as they held her. Due to her passion for children, Dorothy was a receptionist at University Pediatrics, retiring after 20 years.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude and appreciation to the angel care givers at PACE of CNY, Malta House/Malta Manor, for their unwavering compassion and dedication.
