The Wayker and Capehart families regret to announce the passing of Mrs. McVilla Kumba Capehart-Wayker (affectionately called “Kumba”). Kumba was born to the union of Mr. Robert H.

The sudden loss of Kumba is painful, confusing, devasting and difficult to accept. Our Beloved Wife, Daughter, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Niece, Cousin, and Friend, transitioned from this life into God’s loving arms, and we cannot ask God why. We thank God for the time he allowed us to spend with Kumba on this earth. Sleep well until be meet again in God’s Heavenly Kingdom.
