Death is never easy, especially if the death is of someone younger. John Ventimiglia is going through the toughest time anyone can go through. The loss of his young daughter comes as a shock not just to his family but also his fans…
Earlier this month, on January 12, 2023, John Ventimiglia’s wife Belinda shared the heartbreaking news of their daughter’s untimely death. She shared the devastating news of their 25-year-old daughter’s death.
She wrote, “Heartbroken to have to post our darling Odele’s funeral notice.” It continued, “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.”
The post also mentioned, “Odele is survived by her sister, Lucinda Ventimiglia, mother, Belinda Cape, father John Ventimiglia, and her beloved daughter Shiloh.”
The family mentioned the details for the funeral which was to be held in Brooklyn. They requested fans and well-wishers to send donations instead of flowers. They set up a GoFundMe page for late Odele’s young daughter Shiloh.
