Jamie Capossela was born to Peter Capossela and Joni Tobacco on April 28, 2019. Jamie was with us for way, way, way too short of a time. She passed away on April 29, in her mother’s arms.

A traditional Lakota burial service will be held at the Tobacco family cemetery at Dorothi Tobacco’s residence, near Pine Ridge, SD at 11:00 AM on Thursday, May 2, 2019 led by Mr. Richard Broken Nose.
