Albina Theresa (Cioci) Capozza, 102, passed away peacefully on November 12, 2020. She was born December 5, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Caesar and Augusta (Bracci) Cioci. Albina (Bina) was educated in New London public schools and graduated from the former Williams Memorial Institute (WMI), class of 1936. Albina was married to Alfred Capozza on November 29, 1941, St Joseph, New London, CT. They remained happily married for 67 years until his passing on April 9, 2009.

 

Albina moved to New London when she was six months old. She grew up and raised her family on Walbach St. in the Ft Trumbull Italian neighborhood called “the Fort”. In 1962 Albina and Al moved to Harris Road, New London, where she lived for 49 years, making neighborhood friends. She was active in volunteering, a member of the Dante Aligheri Society and the Lawrence & Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. Albina was a communicant of St. Joseph Church. She worked in retail for many years. Albina and Al traveled to Europe, Brazil, Hawaii, Panama Canal and many U.S states over the years. She enjoyed cooking, sewing, ceramics, reading, especially The Day, music and watching old TV movies. In December 2017 her family and friends honored Albina with a 100th birthday celebration.

 

Albina will be remembered as a woman with a lively mind, a big heart, and having a positive attitude. Most of all, she treasured her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Albina is survived by her sons: Alfred Capozza Jr. and wife, Jane and Ronald Capozza and wife, Karen; four grandsons: Thomas Capozza (Heather), Paul Capozza, Scott Capozza (Katy Syombathy) and David Capozza, and granddaughter, Melissa Capozza (James Hock Jr.).
