CAPPADOCIA, Santa “Sandra”



It is with the greatest sorrow and sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our wife, mother, sister, and aunt Santa (Sandra) Cappadocia at the North Bay Regional Health Centre on May 14, 2021 surrounded by her loving family. God called her home after a valiant battle with cancer.

Santa was born June 23, 1942 in Pisterzio, Latina Italy to Sebastiano and Antonia (nee Falconi) Cappadocia, both predeceased. She was the much-loved wife of 58 years of Elfio Cappadocia and loving mother of Mary Lou Cappadocia and Peter Cappadocia. She is survived by her siblings Marisa Pincivero (Frank), Julia Janveau (Ken), and Leo Cappadocia (Brenda) as well as her brother-in-law and sister-in-law Raimondo and Angela Cappadocia. She was a cherished aunt of Lisa Scobie (Mat), Chris Pincivero (Karen), Teri-Lynn Janveau (Allister), Stephen Janveau (Jay), Greg Janveau (Jodi), Darren Cappadocia (Allison), Deanna Bertrand (Brad), David Cappadocia (Kiersten), Rosemary Cappadocia, and Nancy Leszczak (Mike). Loving Zia Santa to several great nieces and nephews who will miss her famous cookies.

Santa was a devout Catholic, a long-time parishioner of Holy Name of Jesus Church, and a 40 plus year member of the Catholic Women’s League. Family was her greatest joy and pride. She loved cooking, baking, and gardening, both vegetables and flowers. She touched many lives and will be missed by everyone who knew her.
