Katherine Joyce Capp

October 18, 1938 – February 4, 2021

Kay was born in 1938 in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, to Albert and Clara Mancini. She was the sister of Nicholas and Albert Jr.

She was known for her wonderful sense of humor, quick wit, and unyielding love for her family.

Kay was gifted a Steinway baby grand piano by her father in her youth and went on to become an accomplished classical pianist. She enjoyed attending Detroit Symphony Orchestra concerts during her years living in Michigan.

A graduate of The University of Michigan, Kay was a devoted teacher and eventually specialized in privately tutoring dyslexic students.

She married the love of her life, Stanley Louis Capp, on August 10th, 1963, after meeting him on a church ski trip.

Kay volunteered at Cranbrook High School, but we suspect that was just to keep an eye on her two sons, Tom and Steve.

Her interests included sewing, needlepoint, and knitting. She was also an ace at crossword puzzles, solitaire, and jumbles.

She loved nothing more than spending quality time with her husband, children, grandchildren, and grand dogs. Family meant everything to her.

She is survived by her beloved husband, Stanley, sons, Thomas (Dawn) and Stephen (Krista), and grandchildren Sebastian, Peyton, Mackenzie, and Parker. She is engrained in our hearts and will be deeply missed.
