Maria Ann Napper.  The Lord blessed us with her life on July 23, 1920 in Los Angeles and He carried her home on August 4, 2017 in Flagstaff.  She spent the first part of her life in Southern California, where she helped raise her siblings during the Depression Era.  During World War II, Ann supported our country by painting warplanes at an aviation manufacturing plant, where she met her husband Jack.  After marrying, she stayed home to be a wife, homemaker, and mother to her two children.  After the passing of her husband, Ann moved to Flagstaff to be near her daughter and grandchildren.  Her faith in God kept her strong through life’s blessings and challenging times.  She was a kind-hearted woman who was a friend to everyone.  She enjoyed flower gardening, the Senior Center, and outings with her friends.  She was an avid Dodgers fan for 60 years.  But overall her greatest joy in life was her family, especially helping to care for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband Jack Napper, and her sister Olga Borgeson.  Ann is survived by her daughter Lorraine (Kim) Mileham, her son Tommy Napper, her brother Frank (Virginia) Rossy, grandchildren Rachel (Matt) King, Kathleen Oquist, Brandon (Ashley) Mileham, Julie Mulvey, Jennie (Keith) Potter, and Marianne Napper, 13 great-grandchildren, and several cousins, nieces and nephews.  

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 12 at 11:00 a.m. at Lozano’s Flagstaff Mortuary.  Interment will be at Riverside National Cemetery, Riverside, California at a later date, where she will be laid to rest beside her husband.

Dearest Cousins, I am so sorry for your loss. Anita was a great friend and the kindest of cousins to my mother Nena. My mother said, "this is the hardest loss of all my cousins". I loved seeing them together, in past years, as well as eavesdropping on some of their more recent phone conversations. Their conversations always contained a bit of reflective reminiscing, updates on what was going on with each others family, discussion about their current health issues, heartfelt laughter, and genuine thankfulness for a life well lived. I will always remember my Tia Anita, as a kind and loving aunt. She will be tremendously missed by all of us who were so fortunately blessed to have known and loved her. With Sincere Sympathy and Love, Your Cousin Becky
