Susan Marie Napier, 70, of Fort Collins, CO, passed away Saturday, January 25, 2020. Born in Pittsburg, KS, she was the daughter of the late Marvin and Katherine Dickinson. Susan graduated from Pittsburg High School and attended Pittsburg State University. A mutual friend of Susan and David M. Napier encouraged David to ask Susan out when he commented, “I’d like to date her!” And the rest was history.

Susan was an Army wife for 20 years. Over the years until Susan retired, she did a wide range of jobs from administrative work to raising Rhea’s and Emu’s, but the jobs she was most proud to claim were as an Army wife and mother.

Surviving are her husband of 48 years, David M. Napier; one child, Korena (Nathan) Hallam of CO; grandsons, Aidan and Ashton Hallam of CO.

A celebration of life will be held 1-3 p.m. Sunday, February 2, 2020, at her daughter’s home in Fort Collins. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation, or the American Lung Association,

It is painful to lose the Sister of my Heart, but I know my hurt is nothing compared to the grief the family is experiencing. Some of my favorite times spent with them was our joint time in Germany. Drinking wine, eating cheese, playing cards and video games together, many times lasting well into the wee hours of the morning. The Napier's became the Family of my Heart and will forever be remembered and loved.
