Odele Ventimiglia, the daughter of “Sopranos” actor John Ventimiglia, has died at the age of 25. According to a Facebook post by her mother, Belinda Cape, the actor’s daughter died on January 12.
“Heartbroken to have to post our darling Odele’s funeral notice”
– Cape wrote in the social media post.
“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 sister, Lucinda Ventimiglia, mother, Belinda Cape, father John Ventimiglia, and her beloved daughter Shiloh.”
