Charlotte Ann Cappo (Maxwell), affectionately known as Char, a resident of Painesdale went peacefully home on October 12, 2017.  She was born January 12, 1936, in Flint, Michigan, to Horace and Fay Maxwell.   On August 13, 1963, Char married Joseph Cappo of Baltic, Michigan.

Charlotte is survived by her children, Euel Cappo of Hancock, Kevin (Deanna) Flanagan of Pa., Annette (Stephen) Butina of Painesdale, Tony Cappo of Marquette, Annie Fetter of Detroit and her chosen one, Elizabeth (Alistair) Pafford of Strongsville,  Joe (Diane) Cappo of Flushing and  son-in-law Ed Boyden of Fenton; her sister, Awanda (Nevada) Scowden of Flint; her grandchildren, Tony (Gina) Cappo, David (Kaurie) Cappo, Daniel (Jamie) Cappo, Brittany (Codie) French, Scott Flanagan, Amanda (Troy) Hop, Jessica (Adam) Hanley, Katelynn (Jake) Tilmann, Stephen (Jen) Butina, Christopher Whaley, Macie Drogosh, Shane Mashke; twenty great-grandchildren; and many loved nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Horace and Fay Maxwell; her loving husband, Joseph Cappo; her step daughter, Joanne Boyden; sister, Ethel Bolduc and nephew, Duane Scowden.

Charlotte and her husband ran the Rendezvous Supper Club famous for it’s Fish Fry Friday’s and Prime Rib Saturday’s.  They were known for their hospitality and generosity throughout the community.  In the fall of 1979, they closed the restaurant and moved to Painesdale.  In 1987, Joe and Char took on the responsibility of raising Elizabeth, officially adopting her in 1990.  Char spent many years working in the community for Pamida, K-Mart, and most recently Festival Foods. She was known mostly for her willingness to assist customers in finding the best deals and would even call them when things went on sale.  She loved to serve her customers and did it with great pride until the age of 79.  She was also known and loved for her sassy spirit and quick wit.

Char loved spending time with her family, most of all her great grandchildren, true crime dramas, a trip to the casino, and loved to play scratch offs and dice.
