Life Story for Claire F. Capron

Claire F.  Capron
Claire F. Capron
8/12/1931-4/28/2018

Claire F. Capron died on April 28, 2018. She was born in the Bronx on August 12, 1931.

She is predeceased by her husband of 43 years, John W. Capron. She is survived by her children Susanne Catalano, John W. Capron Jr., Marybeth Keitz and Christine Puelle and her sons-in law Michael Catalano and Joel Puelle. Her wonderful grandchildren are Danielle Lemerman, Christina Catalano, Eric Keitz, Michael Catalano, Hannah Puelle and Benjamin Puelle. Her dear sisters are Barbara Cahill, Joanne Bloomingdale and Margaret Federici.

She leaves behind many treasures for her family – knitting, crochet and ceramics. She was a skilled seamstress and, in her early years, she was well known to sew beautiful special occasion clothing for her family. She volunteered her time in many ways over the years. She was a constant presence at St. Brendan School in the Bronx while her children attended. She was involved in the Scout program, taught sewing and cooking at the school. She was a faithful parishioner at St. Brendan’s Church for many, many years. In the apartment building where she lived, each of her children had responsibilities to the elderly neighbors – being sure they had what they need and were never too lonely. More recently, she volunteered her time at the Convent of Mary the Queen. Sister Joseph Mary was her aunt and Claire took very good care of her in her final years. She benefitted so much from her time spent with Aunt Margaret that she stayed on for many years at ‘the Queen’ administering her kind and loving care to many, many beautiful nuns who learned simple craft projects or just had their hand held on a tough day.

Nothing brought her more pleasure in life than to have her family surrounding her. Her grandchildren were the greatest gifts for her. While she was able, she made them the center of her life and benefited greatly from her time spent with each and every one of them.

She leaves behind a legacy of service and kindness, of laughter, funny moments and love, always love. She will be dearly missed by all who were lucky enough to know her. She truly was one of a kind.
