Glory J. Caputo | Republican-American


WOODBURY – Glory Jayne Marquis Caputo passed peacefully in her sleep on March 2, 2022, at the age of 74. In this case, one of God’s angels was simply sent back to Heaven.

Born in Woodbury on May 20, 1947 and graduated from Woodbury High School, class of 1966, Glory’s life was one of love, caring, and giving. She had a wonderful way of making others feel comfortable by listening attentively, not being judgmental, and always looking for a connection. She found joy in being helpful and giving in whatever way she could to the so many she touched.

Glory held different jobs through the years, as it was very hard for her to not be busy. However, one part of her career that she always cherished was becoming a registered nurse’s aide while working at Cedar Lane Nursing home. Her empathetic soul made her the right person to care for those who could not care for themselves.

Glory was an avid animal lover and enthusiast, and very patriotic, as she had a passion for veterans and military personnel that she supported during her time with the Marine Corps League Auxiliary and key volunteers.

Some of Glory’s favorite things to talk about where her time working at the A&W Root Beer stand, all of her many

family and friends, her class reunions and friends she’s had since kindergarten, her trip to Saint Johns, how to get a stain out of anything, and the work that went into making her famous Easter meat and rice pies.

Glory will rejoin her mom and dad in Heaven, Fred and Dolly Marquis, along with her brothers Gene, Terry and Dean. She leaves behind so many who loved her dearly, including her husband of 46 years, Matthew Caputo; daughter Georgette; son Marc; grandkids Emily, Lila, Rosalie, Melissa and Tim; son-in-law Danny; brothers Ricky and Monte; sisters Deedee and Michele; sisters-in-law Linnea and Cheryl, and brother-in-law Tommy … and a whole bunch of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.
