Jennie Laura Capel, a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt passed away peacefully on September 5, 2023, in Clearwater, Florida. Born on February 3, 1950, in Birmingham, Alabama, Jennie, a true southern belle, was a shining beacon of love, generosity, and intelligence. Jennie was renowned for her dedication to her family and her profession. She received her education as a Registered Nurse, and over her career, she garnered a plethora of certifications including Emergency Room Nurse, Oncology Nurse, Nutritional Support Nurse, and Intravenous Nurse. Jennie's dedication to the well-being of others was evident in her work with the Veterans Association, where she tirelessly served those who had devoted their lives to our nation. Jennie was also a woman of diverse interests. She found immense joy in traveling with her family, creating memories in new places and experiencing different cultures. She had just returned from a trip to France. A lifelong dream finally fulfilled. Jennie was an avid shopper and this showed in her poise and sophisticated sense of style. A regular patron of the arts, she enjoyed attending concerts and plays, immersing herself in the creativity of others. Jennie was an ardent fan of country music, often heard attempting to hum along to her favorite tunes. She was a culinary enthusiast, known for her excellent southern cooking skills, and her family will deeply miss their celebrations and gatherings sharing her delicious meals. Her love for animals was evident in her fondness for watching animal shows and petting dogs, any dog. The simple act of stroking a dog's fur would bring a radiant smile to her face. She would light up with the sight of a dog's wagging tale. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. " Jennie lived these words daily, making a difference in the lives of those she encountered with her friendly nature and generous spirit. Jennie leaves behind a loving family who will miss her dearly. Jennie was predeceased by her husband, Bobby Capel, whose love and companionship she cherished deeply. They were so lucky to find each other in life and will now be together in eternity. She is survived by her daughters, Tracy Blackburn and Angie Blackburn Riley; her granddaughters, Jessica Walker, Denise Walker, and Madison Riley; her great-grandson, Joseph Mitchell; her brother, Gene Hurst, his wife, Kim and their children Brandon and Nicole. She also leaves behind her dear cousins Gayle and Charlie Agee; brothers and sisters-in-law Jim and Vickie Capel, and Jackie and Frances Capel. We must not forget all of Jennie's many friends who she leaves behind. They will all have a piece of her in their fond memories. Her former coworkers and churchgoers will continue to share stories about Jennie. Her neighborhood, Coachmen Reserve, will not be the same without Jennie walking around the block or attending monthly get-togethers. Jennie Laura Capel was a woman of resilience, grace, and intelligence. She touched many lives with her kindness, her dedication to her profession, and her love for her family. As we remember Jennie, we celebrate a life well-lived, a life filled with love and service, a life that truly made a difference.
