“Heartbroken to have to post our darling Odele’s funeral notice,” she wrote. “Her sister Lucinda and I have been overwhelmed by the messages of support and love we have received, and your remembrances of how cherished Odele was to so many. Odele was greatly loved, and leaves a huge hole in our lives.”
As Belinda’s post revealed, a service celebrating Odele’s life was held on January 26 in Brooklyn, New York.
It was further reported that Odele is also survived by a 2-month-old daughter, whom she named Shiloh. “Odele is survived by her sister, Lucinda Ventimiglia, mother, Belinda Cape, father John Ventimiglia, and her beloved daughter Shiloh.”
A GoFundMe has been set up to encourage people to donate to Shiloh’s “future education costs,” in lieu of flowers. So far, more than $57,000 has been raised for Shiloh.
While her sister Lucinda’s social media is fairly private, People reports that she has also shared a statement following her sister’s passing. “Words will never be enough to express the grief we are all feeling. I loved my little sister a lot and I will spend the rest of my life searching for her in everything,” Lucinda began.
“My family and I are so grateful for all the care and support we have been receiving during this impossible time. It has never been more clear how much she meant to so many people. Sending love to everyone who is trying to cope with her loss – look after each other and keep Odele in your thoughts.”
Odele’s cause of death is not immediately known. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Ventimiglia and Cape families during this difficult time.
