BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Teresa Capodice Heiney of Titusville passed away on April 28, 2020, at AdventHealth Hospital, Orlando, Fl. She was born Dec. 15, 1956, In Bloomington, Illinois, daughter of Jack and Betty Crews Capodice.
Teresa grew up in Bloomington, Illinois where she worked in her family’s business (M. Capodice & Sons).

Teresa’s beauty came from a life well-lived. She realized at a young age how to be independent and self-reliant; she was a good friend to all she met.
She held family, friends and faith close, enjoyed cooking, traveling and bargain hunting at local garage sales. Teresa’s best quality was her sense of humor; she used it in good times and bad; always there to make those around her laugh.
Per her wishes, a celebration of life will take place in Brevard County as soon as family and friends can gather safely. Donations may be made in her memory to the SPCA of Brevard or a charity of the donor’s choice.
