Mrs. Napier was my 4th grade teacher many years ago. I will always remember her and she was one of my all time favorite teachers. She always loved to take the class out and play softball if we were good. Thanks Mrs. Napier for helping make me who I am today.

Mrs. Napier was a wonderful math teacher in my Fourth Grade Year. She was able to explain things in a simple way that anyone could understand with good sense. I know she is resting now. Blessings to All of the Napier Family. Your in my prayers. I ask The Lord to send each one of you peace and understanding as well as comfort. I know this is a rough thing that most of us have too go thru in life. Would have loved to seen her but haven’t in years. Last time I seen her I believe was in the grocery store. Cherish all the Good Memories she’s left behind for everyone of YOU!!!!!!!!!

I grew up across the street from the Napier family. Maultie was such a loving woman. She loved her family, her home, her garden and much more.
She was so funny and caring. She was a very good friend to my mom till the day she died. I thank her for that. She watched over my Dad till he passed away . I have so many memories of her that i cherish. She always teased me about alot of things and I enjoyed our conversations. We had so many through the years.
She loved God and believed in him with her whole heart.
She was witty and loved to talk.
My thought and prayers go out to the Napier family.
Maultie was one of a kind.
I will miss her.
She is in a much better place.
R I.P. you are an angel now and in heaven looking down on all of us. You will never be forgotten. Fly high Maultie.
Love you

Oh the fun we had at Anthony Wayne. We shared so much! Maultie loved her family dearly and spoke of them often. I loved her humor and her strength. She was a force that I was proud to know. Rest in peace dear one!
