Jamie Capossela Obit

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.

During her brief time in this world, Jamie made a powerful, heartfelt impact on her family. She was beautiful.

In addition to her parents, Jamie is survived by her maternal grandfather, Vern Weston, and grandmother, Dorothi Tobacco; brothers, Guthrie (wife, Tonya), Lee Gerry (Lucy) and Leroy Iron Cloud; sisters, Cassidy Hayes, and Nettie; many loving uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews and nieces.

Jamie was predeceased by her paternal grandparents, Anthony and Dorothy Capossela.

Pallbearers will be: Gideon Youngman and Doug Crow Ghost.

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.

In lieu of flowers, the family would request a contribution to Running Strong for American Indian Youth, Inc. (indianyouth.org), in the name of Jamie Capossela.
