I found a short newspaper article mentioning Capitola:

The Oregonian newspaper
October 16, 1892
page 6

Salem, Oregon Oct. 15
Capitola Damme from Grant's Pass, was committed to the insane asylum today.

The Oregon State Archives also mentions another commitment for Capitola:
Case# 102
Name Damme, C.
Date Dec 12, 1893
Record Type Commitment
County Josephine
Source Hawthorne Asylum
Identifier Housewife
Remarks F

I found a mention of her death:
The Oregonian
Date: August 24, 1899
Location: Oregon
page 5

Capitola Damme, 48 Clark Street, tuberculosis.

She is buried in the Lone Fir Cemetery that is managed by Metro Parks. If you contact them, they are very good at sharing what is in their records.

William is also buried there:
Last name Damme

Grave number 1N
Lot 101

I found a death notice for William:

page 12
DAMME-Died at St. Vincent's Hospital, February 6, 1903, William Damme, aged 48 years, late residence 74 Randolph street, Albina.

I hope this information helps you. Hopefully Metro Parks will have something for you in the information they are given for burial.
