She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from National College of Education in Evanston, IL, in 1951. Arthur Oliver Capp, Jr (“Ollie”) took an interest in “Patty Lou” after he returned from his military service and they were married on September 1st 1950. They soon moved to La Crescenta, CA and lived there for 5 years where they attended the La Crescenta Baptist Church where she began teaching Sunday School and was introduced to Child Evangelism fellowship (CEF). For many years, she hosted Good News Clubs in her homes in California and Illinois and taught hundreds of children about Jesus. In 1955, Patricia and Ollie moved back to Zion, IL. A lifelong member of Christ Community Church (formerly Christian Catholic Church), she served in various ministry positions; a Sunday School and Bible Studies teacher, a cast member in the Zion Passion Play, a staff member at Camp Zion Youth Ministries and was a deaconess in the church. She excelled at hospitality and was a gracious hostess to many. She especially enjoyed having missionaries in her home during CCC’s annual Convocation week. While Patricia never pursued a formal teaching career, she was a teacher for several years at Winkie Bear Preschool, a ministry of CCC and worked with students in the remedial reading program at Zion Elementary Schools. She always loved children and looked for opportunities to teach and to be a positive influence in their lives beginning with her own eight children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as the children in her church family, and children throughout the community through Child Evangelism Fellowship and Good News Clubs.

Even into her 90s at her assisted living facility, Patricia was on mission to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and his love with others. “And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”” Luke‬ ‭10:27‬ ‭NASB A visitation will be held Thursday, July 1, 2021 from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m., followed by a Funeral Service at 11:00 a.m. at Christ Community Church located at 2500 Dowie Memorial Drive, Zion, IL 60099.
