“Sopranos” actor John Ventimiglia’s daughter Odele died on Jan 12. She was 25.
Odele’s mother, Belinda Cape, shared the news in a recent Facebook post, writing that she and her family are “heartbroken” over the unexpected loss.
“Heartbroken to have to post our darling Odele’s funeral notice. 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,” Cape wrote.
“Odele was greatly loved, and leaves a huge hole in our lives.”
A rep for John, who portrayed Artie Bucco on the classic HBO series, didn’t return Page Six’s request for comment.
In lieu of flowers, the family requested donations be made to a GoFundMe that was set up to ease the cost of Odele’s baby daughter Shiloh’s future education. The fundraiser’s goal was $50,000, and it’s already approaching $52,000.
John’s former “Sopranos” co-star Stevie Van Zandt and his wife, Maureen Van Zandt, donated $500 to the fundraiser and expressed their condolences.
“Deepest Love and Condolences, Maureen and Stevie Van Zandt,” they signed their donation.
Odele is survived by her nuclear family and her daughter.
