Obituary

Dorothy M. “Dotti” Capes, age 94, longtime Coupeville resident, passes away on Sunday, October 20, 2019, at Careage of Whidbey.

Dotti was born February 15, 1925, in Seattle to Edward and Vira (Bigelow) Paris. She was a graduate of Queen Anne High School. She met her future husband Roland Capes and they were married on March 2, 1943. They resided in the Magnolia Bluff neighborhood of Seattle, and later moved to Edmonds. In 1965 the couple moved to Whidbey Island. They also lived in other communities, including Lake Havasu City, AZ, where they enjoyed wintering in later years. They eventually returned to South Whidbey and lived in Freeland. Dorothy and Roland traveled overseas on many missionary journeys. Serving the Lord with her husband was Dorothy’s passion. She loved to garden, crochet and knit. She made many crocheted creations and enjoyed sharing them as gifts with her friends. She had a deep love and personal relationship with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Dorothy is survived by four children: Bonny Halstead (Robert) of Clinton; daughter -in-law Shelli Capes of Lake Stevens, adopted son Peter Capes(Kristy) of Peyton, Co, adopted son Chris Capes (Estella Guzman) of Des Moines and adopted daughter Vicky Tolsma; twenty grandchildren; seventeen great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren; two sisters, Marjorie Groshong of San Diego, CA and Joanna Davis(Bob) of Lynnwood; also, numerous other relatives. She was preceded in death by her husband Roland on May 29, 2017; by her son Greg Capes on August 15, 2019; by her daughter Gloria, her adopted daughter Winnie, her granddaughter Tonya and by four siblings.
