(July 11, 1957 - September 7, 2021) - Tina passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 7th, at Sault Area Hospital at the age of 64, after a long-fought, courageous battle with cancer. Predeceased by her parents Louis and Jeana Cappellani. She is survived by her loving husband Doug, and her cherished daughter Mya (Joey). Step-mother to Lindsay (Jeff). Sister of Bonnie (late Clint), Glen (Donna) and Debra (John). Sister-in-law of Gary Prusky (Mary) and Steve Prusky (Sharon). She was a loving aunt who was always there to listen to Angela, Christina, Ryan, Jeffrey, Shayla, Jayce, Ryan, Lisa, Wayne, Ashley and Shannon. Great-aunt to many. She will be greatly missed by her fur-babies Shasta and Bonnie. Tina will always be remembered by her closest friends Suzie, Marjorie, Denise, Lori, Katie and Doug and a special thank you for their support over the last few years. She is now reunited with her best friend Paulette. Tina was proud to have been born and raised in Chapleau. Her working years took her to many different positions including the MNR, the Royal Bank, Chapleau Health Services and the Beer Store. Tina always took pride in serving the public and the people of Chapleau with an open heart and a smile on her face. Tina devoted her off-time to her family. She loved to cook and bake (we will all miss her famous chocolate chip cookies). Tina's family would like to extend a very heart-felt thank you to the numerous healthcare workers who took part in her journey, including Dr. Kendra and Dr. Stephen Saari, Dr. Ljudmilla Jefremova, Dr. Noah Kosowski, the nurses and nursing students at SSCHS, Dr. Andrew Pierce, Dr. Mohammad Rassouli, Dr. Karen Booth, Dr. Sarah White, Dr. Mary Wilson, the nurses in Radiation and Oncology at SAH, the nurses on 3B at SAH, and her wonderful home-care nurses Marcia Leishman and Diana McCarthy. They would also like to thank Father Sebastien and Father Hamish. A special thank you goes out to the Dechamplain and the Raymond family, whom Tina loved so very dearly. Memorial donations in memory of Tina can be made to the Chapleau General Hospital Foundation, as well as the Tracy's Dream Foundation. Cremation has taken place at River’s Edge Cremation Centre, Sault Ste. Marie. Funeral arrangements will be announced, and a celebration of life will take place at a later date.
