She was born on June 29, 1947 in New London, Connecticut to parents Leslie B. and Barbara Ann (Kaiser) Gore. She later graduated high school. On February 7, 1969, she married Kenneth “K.C.” Charles Capen.
She loved her family more than anyone could possibly imagine. She was a kind and giving soul; and would do anything she could for others. She was the most amazing woman in this world, she gave so much love to all of us, if you knew her you could not help but love her.. She was the glue that kept our family together, right now we are all shattered, broken and empty inside. So now we will cling to and lean on each other, we will be the glue to stick together just the way she would want us to. She was the first female president of the Tucson Mountain Little League. She was also on the women’s bowling team. She also loved her Broncos
