Nellie Capalia Obituary
Nellie Sotelo Davis Capalia

Our beloved mother Nellie passed away on December 15, 2014. Our mom was born on April 4th, 1925 and was raised in Los Angeles, Ca with her parents and eight siblings. She was preceded in death by her parents, Vincent and Irene Sotelo and sisters Celia, Irene, Emelda and our beloved father "Jack" John Wiley Davis who passed away at the young age of 38. She and our father Jack established a happy life in San Pedro, Ca where she lived out the rest of her days. He was the Skipper of a sportfishing boat called "The San Pedro Special" at Norm's Landing in San Pedro. It became a family affair, he was the Captain and she was at his side working the galley. All four children were involved and on board also. After his passing she rose to the challenge as a dedicated devoted hardworking mother who always put her children and grandchildren first. She was vibrant, beautiful and fun. She will be missed! Mom you are loved and appreciated. She is survived by her children, Jack Davis, Janet St. Dennis, Patrick Davis, Kimberly Wallace and her grandchildren, Jacque Reimer, John Davis, Richard Caughlin, Rene Plemmons, Ryan St. Dennis, Stephanie Wilkerson, Patricia Liu, Melissa Hoxsey, Jeseph Davis, Nicole Rivera, Jason Rivera; her great-grandchildren, Sarah Reimer, Richard Caughlin Jr., Ari Caughlin, Justin Wilkerson, Jennifer Wilkerson, Jaleigh Wilkerson, Ethan Liu, Eleena Liu, Isabel Hoxsey, Erick Hoxsey, Eli Paxton, Savanah Paxton, Izaiah Plemmons, Urijah Plemmons; her sister Bertha Harrison; her brothers, Vincent Sotelo, Bill Sotelo, Octavio Sotelo, Oscar Sotelo and many beloved special nieces, nephews and extended family whom she loved as her own. She leaves us with many happy and grateful memories. We are comforted with the knowledge that she is finally reunited with our Dad. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, Dec. 20, 2014, 11:00 a.m. at McNerney's Mortuary Chapel followed by interment at All Souls Cemetery in Long Beach.
