Obituary of Yolanda Capaldo
Yolanda Capaldo, 88, of Fruitland, passed away Friday at Grace Memory Care surrounded by family. She was born February 09, 1931 in McKeesport, PA, the daughter of Nicola & Margaret Porreco. She traveled to Italy in 1948 and married Mario Capaldo at St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City. After Mario passed away in 2003 she moved to Fruitland where she lived for several years before moving into Grace Memory Care in Meridian, ID.
Yolanda was the foundation of the Capaldo family; her quite strength and unconditional love present through all generations. She spent most of her time in the kitchen, cooking family meals and passing on the love of Italian food. She always had a kind smile and never had the need to raise her voice because she was loved, adored, and respected by all who knew her.
Yolanda is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Remo and Lorie Capaldo, Boise; daughter, Linda Palmer, Portland; daughter, and son-in-law, Rita and Alton Shotwell, Payette; son, and daughter-in-law, Leo and Cheryl Capaldo, Ontario.
She is also survived by her grandchildren; Gina (Capaldo) Mann (husband Tim, great-granddaughter Harleigh); Gino Capaldo (great-granddaughter Ava); Justin Palmer (wife Fatima); Brandon Palmer (wife Angela, great-granddaughters Izabella & Lucy); Michael Shotwell and Amanda Patella; Brianna (Shotwell) Christie (husband Matt, great-granddaughters Mckenzie & Kayden); Josh Williams (wife Blaine, great-grandsons Tieson, Michael, and Jaden); one brother and two sisters.
