Carol J. Caporali, 86, of West Sunbury passed away Wednesday, December 27, 2023, at AGH in Pittsburgh after spending the day surrounded by her loved ones.
She was born August 25, 1937, in New Kensington, and was the youngest daughter of the late Kenneth and Mae McIntyre Wagner.
After graduating high school, she married the love of her life, the late Ronald V. Caporali Sr. on Sept. 10, 1956, and moved to Penn State to begin their family. As a young wife and mother, she acquired many self-taught homemaking skills while raising her family and assisting her husband with growing his business. Together, she and her husband traveled and had many adventures with friends and family. She saw many places and touched the lives of countless people along the way.
Affectionately known as "The Cake Lady", she was well known for her gift of decorating beautiful cakes for a wide range of celebrations for over 50 years. She was pleased and honored to be a part of so many celebrations for those in her community and the ones she loved. To her family and many more, she was "Mammy". She had a great sense of humor, loved a good practical joke and had the best mischievous laugh! She enjoyed hosting parties, family gatherings, reminiscing and making jokes with the ones she loved.
She is survived by her three daughters, Leslie (Tom) Gorham of West Sunbury, Carrie Powell of Sunbury, Ohio, and Amy (Bill) Dellich of West Sunbury; and one son, Ronald V. Caporali Jr. (Cheryl) of West Sunbury. Also surviving are six grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Pat Provenzano of Florida and many nieces and nephews.
