ADELLE JOSTEN

Adelle Josten, loving wife of 23 years to Jim Cappa and mother to Andrew and Paul, passed away in her home on Thursday February 20th, 2020.

Adelle loved to sing, dance, and explore the world around her. She enjoyed traveling around the country and visiting many of the different and beautiful vistas and wilderness locations throughout America. One of her long-time favorite places was the Oregon Coast where she spent long, easy days looking out over the Pacific Ocean with her husband Jim. Adelle lived in many wonderful and diverse regions of the country, including Milwaukee, WI, Portland, OR, Kirkland, WA, Rapid City, SD, Florence, AZ, and Madras, OR.

Adelle taught the Legal Support Professional program at Lake Washington Institute of Technology where her students’ lives were enriched by her teaching ability and supportiveness.

We will all miss her very much.
