April 28, 1947 - November 10, 2021
Maureen Cynthia Caples also known to many as “Ma”, 74, passed away at Prisma Health Hospital in Columbia, SC on November 10, 2021. She was born on April 28th, 1947 in Worthington, MA to Patrick and Jeanette Sullivan. She moved to Darlington, SC in 1996. She managed many convenience stores and later went on to pursue her lifelong dream and opened Pic-A-Pet pet store in Darlington, SC. Ma got to live out many of her dreams including living on Potato House Road thanks to her loving, one of a kind, husband. Her love for the animals was so profound that when she closed the doors of her store, she brought all of them home with her. Along with her love for animals, Ma had an unattainable love for shopping. If she was ever lost, she could most likely be found at any Walmart or Salvation Army store. Not only was her love for pets and shopping enormous but Ma’s heart would hold onto anyone she encountered. She loved to make others happy, especially through gifting which she used as an excuse to do some more shopping. Ma will be lovingly remembered by her husband Dalton Caples of 17 years, her brother Thomas Reilly of Chicopee, MA; her children Lewis (Tina) Lancto, William Lancto, Randy (Kathy) Lancto, Lori (Ian) Newman; her bonus daughters Jean Kazimierczak and Christine Borden; her stepchildren Jay (Teresa) Caples, Tammy Gardner, and Mary Caples and their children; her grandchildren Bryan, Devin, Lindsay, Kru, Michael, Reno, Tori, Trinity, Camia, Cameron, Jynae, Isaac, Justin; great grandchildren Aryanna, Emma, Amirah, Jordan, Silas, Robert, Adalynn, Ava, Avery, Briella, Kyler, Darius, and Max and a great deal of bonus children and grandchildren that she adopted throughout her life, and her very best friends Annie Gadson and Patricia Westfall. Ma was predeceased by her stepsons Jimmy Caples and Tracy Caples and her grandson Jerel Gadson. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at 4:00 PM at Kistler Hardee Funeral Home in Darlington, SC. The family will receive friends 1 hour prior to the service at the funeral home.
