SUNDERLAND -- Donna M. Capen, 51, of Sunderland Hill Road, died Saturday morning, Aug. 13, 2005, at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington.

Capen of Sunderland; her daughter, Kaineen “Kandi” Anderson and her fiancé Mike Navarro of West Rutland; four brothers, Robert Diaz of Willacoochee, Ga., David Diaz of Ocala, Fla., and John and Joseph Diaz of the Virginia Naval Yard; two sisters, Wanda Moore of Willacoochee, Ga., and Phyllis Nolan of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; and five grandchildren, Adelbert and Austin Capen, Jeffery Anderson and Justin and Jessie Slade.
