Carmen Zoraida Capeles

December 21, 1963 — July 24, 2022

Carmen Z. Capeles, age 58, currently of Ansonia, CT has entered the presence of the Lord on Sunday, July 25, 2022, in Griffin Hospital, Derby, Connecticut. Carmen was born in Caguas, Puerto Rico, briefly moving to New York before settling in the Bridgeport area.  Carmen was a woman full of life, with a graceful demeanor. She had a natural gift for decor and knew what would work to make a place shine. Those who knew Carmen knew she was always available to listen to them with an understanding heart, and a genuine desire to be there.  She appreciated the simple things in life, such as sitting or standing on the edge of the water just enjoying the peaceful serene waves and nature's beauty at its best.  She enjoyed music, dancing, shopping, arts and crafts as well as reading.  Without a doubt, her sudden departure leaves a void beyond comprehension, but her faith, grants her the greatest gift of all, eternal life and eventual peaceful hearts for those who love her knowing those promises.  

Carmen is the daughter of the late Pedro Capeles and Hilda Capeles currently of Bridgeport.  In addition to her mother, Carmen is survived by her daughter Jasmine Capeles, her son, Ian M. Pawlowski, Jr.,  her partner David Agosto.  Her grandchildren, Skyler Ian Pawlowski, Genieva Amani Pawlowski and Kai Anakin Pawlowski, her siblings, Tyrone Capeles, Alex Capeles,  Pedro Capeles, Jr. and Carlos Capeles. In addition to all those mentioned above, she is also survived by a host of cousins, nieces, nephews,  relatives, and friends who will sorely miss her.  She was predeceased by a brother Fernando Capeles.
