Marianne Caprino of Garrett passed away peacefully on Friday August 7, 2020 at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana at the age of 71. She spent her life working as director of operations for group homes for adults with developmental disabilities. She was a very kind and gentle person who adored all her nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Her dogs were her children, especially Max and then Jasper, a rescue dog she was fostering. She spent her free time volunteering at the food bank and crafting, making pins and bracelets for children (and adults), and giving these to anyone she encountered and to charitable organizations such as Ronald McDonald House.These were also always a hit with the numerous nurses and doctors she met in her many visits to healthcare facilities. No flowers please. Donations can be sent to Great Lakes Westie Rescue, Inc., 5843 State Road 205, Garrett, IN 46738. She is preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Josephine (Bruno) Caprino and one sister Christine Fuller (Tom). She is survived by one brother, Frank Caprino (Elise) of Wolcottville, Indiana.
