Betty Jean Napier

March 14, 1937 ~ June 17, 2022 (age 85)


Betty Jean Clark Napier passed from this earth and joined her Lord & Savior Jesus Christ in Heaven on June 17, 2022. Betty was born March 14, 1937, to John Elmer Clark, Sr. and Osie Mae Clark in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. She was the third of seven children.
Betty married her one true love, Samuel Olen Napier on December 4, 1954. They were married 67 years and 6 months. To this union came three children: Tami, Terri, and Michael.
It would be wrong to say that Betty lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When many, would have broken and given up, Betty stayed strong and assured her family “it’s going to be ok.” Just because she is no longer here, it does not mean she lost her fight.
Betty is predeceased by her parents, John Elmer and Osie Clark, brothers Delmer Clark, and Tom Clark, and brothers-in-law, Glen Blankenship and Dr. Phillip Isham.   
Betty is survived by her husband, Sam Napier, children, Tami Tygart, and husband Darrell of Grove, OK, Terri Carpenter and husband Cacy of Sapulpa, OK and Dr. Michael Napier and wife Cindy of Flora Vista, NM. Eleven grandchildren, Patrick Bruton and wife Melanie, Mindi McDougal and husband Robert, Sunnee Meek and husband Chance, Jayme Tygart, Markie Kirk and husband Andrew, Matthew Hoover, Cacy Lynn Buck and husband Jared, Chrissy DeClue and husband Andrew, Micah Jean Phelps and husband Ryan, Mich Napier and wife Tabetha, and 1st Lieutenant Sterling Napier and wife Alexandra, as well as twenty-seven great grandchildren.
Betty is also survived by sisters, Agnes Blankenship, Linda Isham-Skaggs (Bill), Sharon Martin (Larry), brother John E Clark, Jr. (Linda), and sisters-in-law, Edith Clark, and Debbie Clark.
The family would like to give heartfelt thanks to Aspen Health and Rehab in Broken Arrow, for their wonderful care of Betty, as well as Live Well Hospice, who helped beyond words in walking this journey.
