‘Sopranos’ Actor’s Daughter Dies At 25

No parent wants to have to experience the loss of their child. Sadly, “Soprano’s” actor John Ventimiglia, who played Artie Bucco on the series, is mourning his 25-year-old daughter, Odele. A cause of death has not been shared, but her mother, Belinda Cape, announced her death on social media sharing that she died on January 12, 2023. 

In a Facebook post, Belinda wrote, “Heartbroken to have to post our darling Odele’s funeral notice.” She continued, “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.”

Odele is survived by her father, mother, sister Lucinda and daughter, Shiloh, who is just a baby. Shiloh was born in November 2022. Her family has set up a GoFundMe on Shiloh’s behalf to help pay for her “future education costs.” The fundraiser has already surpassed its $50,000 goal and is currently up to $57,000.

Odele’s sister, Lucinda, also posted a tribute on social media. She shared multiple photos on Instagram and wrote, “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.”

Odele’s funeral was held on January 26, 2023, in Brooklyn.
