Patricia Ann (Collins) Capilli, 55, of Ridgefield, wife of John G Capilli, died on Tuesday morning March 16th. Patti was born on March 29, 1961 in New Rochelle, NY; a daughter of the late Frank J and Theresa (Deeley) Collins, moving with them to Ridgefield in 1963.

Though she missed her eagerly anticipated St Patrick’s day arrival by a few weeks she was nonetheless endowed with the very spirit of Cead mile Failte. Her abundant sense of hospitality was evidenced early on with high school “Collinsburger” parties hosted at her parent’s home on Bobby’s Court and her employment at legendary town institutions Ridgefield Ice Cream Shop, Galloway’s, and Touchstone’s.
