In her youth, Mrs. Capelle worked in an artillery shell factory during World War II and also in a bean factory.

Mrs. Capelle in 1961 married Howard Capelle of Cedarburg and the couple continued to reside in Elkhorn. Mr. Capelle died March 23, 1999.

Mrs. Capelle took great pride in her home and yard, well into her golden years, also enjoying her grandchildren, sewing and oil painting. She was a longtime member of St. Patrick’s Parish in Elkhorn.
