Eleanor "Ellie" A. Capps, age 79 and resident of Bartlesville, Oklahoma, passed away at home in her favorite chair and was taken Jane Phillips Hospital where she was pronounced deceased on Thursday, April 7, 2016.

Eleanor Anne Coffield was born on July 16, 1936 in Davenport, Iowa. She was the daughter of Hugh John Coffield and Irma Junietta (Pehrson) Coffield.
After receiving her early education in Davenport, Iowa, she graduated with her Sr. High class of 1954. She then attended the University of Iowa for three years where she received her "Mrs." Degree.
In July of 1958, Ellie and Ronald L. Capps were united in marriage in Davenport, Iowa. From 1958-1974, the family lived in Coffeyville, Kansas. Then they lived in Bartlesville from 1974-1984 before moving to Severna Park, Maryland until 1989. In 1989, the family moved back to Bartlesville where they have continued their residence to the present time.
Ellie was a member of St. John Before the Latin Gate Church, in Bartlesville, as well as a member of the Women's Golf Association and Rotary Anns. She was a wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker. She enjoyed many things, such as crossword puzzles, reading, golf, and bowling. She also enjoyed working the DVR and watching Mass on T.V.
