Ingram Funeral Home announces services for Mildred G. Capp, 83, of Cumming who passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 20, 2009. Born in Beaverdale, Pa., she was the daughter of the late Harry and Esther Goss.
Often referred to as Millie, Mickey or Aunt Toop, she enjoyed a wonderful life spending many of her years in Johnstown and Pittsburgh, Pa. She relocated to Fairmont, W.Va. in the 1950's where she enjoyed racing cars with her late, beloved husband Norm. In 1990, she moved to Atlanta so that she could be closer to her son and grandchildren.
Mickey was recently honored by the Retired Senior Volunteer Program in recognition of her unselfish service and devotion to others. As a faithful servant to the Lord, Mickey was an active member of the Christian church for more than 40 years. She led activities for her church in every city she lived, including the Fairmont Christian Church D.O.C., the First Christian Church D.O.C. in Marietta, the Regional D.O.C. Christian Women's Fellowship in Georgia and the First Christian Church in Cumming.
Mickey enjoyed playing bridge with her good friends at the Lanier Ladies Bridge Club. She loved to sell and did so in a variety of industries. She managed the Beverly Hills Memorial Gardens and was the No. 1 salesperson. She was promoted to credit manager at Fairmont General Hospital and later became a manager and designer of fine jewelry. During her spare time she led the Partners in Education program for Beef O'Brady's where she coordinated school nights for local Forsyth County elementary schools such as Chattahoochee, Chestatee, Coal Mountain, Cumming and Matt Elementary.
She was the widow of Norman E. Capp and was also predeceased by a sister, Wilma Jean Goss (Dowdell).
Survivors include her son, Bruce Capp; two beloved grandchildren, Ashlyn Capp and Harrison Capp; dear friends, Helena Agronow, Alex Agronow, Cody Agronow, Marsha Capp, Jeannie Faris, Pat Holman, Greta Martin, Gene McCann and Beth Weimer.
Family members outside the Atlanta area include her brother-in-law, John D. Dowdell; nieces, Susan Dowdell, Sharon Dowdell and Lauren Dickinson; and nephews, David Dowdell, Kevin Dowdell and John Dowdell.
A memorial service will be held at the First Christian Church in Cumming on Thursday, June 25, at 6:30 p.m. A burial service will be held at the Beverly Hills Memorial Gardens in Morgantown, W.Va., on Saturday, June 27, at 1 p.m.
