She is preceded in death by her husband, Carmen; daughter, Irene Dickey; sisters, Camilla Baltrinic and Angela Capozzoli; brothers, Dominic Capozzoli and Anthony Vincent Capozzoli; mother, Anna Marie and father, Raffele Capozzoli of Akron, Ohio.
Ida was born on November 1, 1921 in Akron, Ohio to Raffele and Anna Marie Capozzoli. She was the youngest of 5 children in the Capozzoli family. She graduated from North High School and began a career in pen and ink fashion art. However, when the men were being called to war, there was a need for pen and ink artists in the war industry. Ida took her art skills and went to work for Firestone as a lady draftsman drafting 40 mm bofor guns. Her contribution was so great she was listed in a book written about the era of women draftsmen. After the war was over she left Firestone to begin her family; marrying Carmen Scaccio on July 13, 1946. From here on, all her interests were put aside and she immersed herself in her greatest passion, raising her children and supporting her husband in all his career endeavors.
Ida, even as the matriarch of the family, made time to focus on her own interests. Her husband Carmen was known as the businessman, but Ida was an entrepreneur all her own. She created the infamous ‘Pickle People’ jars that were sold nationwide. Ida also was an accomplished watercolor artist and often sold her work in art shows and stores throughout Ohio. Ida had a way of making friends of strangers and family of friends. She was warm hearted and open minded and loved conversation from all the people she would meet. Her smile was infectious and her warmth disarming. The world has lost one of the best it had to offer.
