We regret to announce the passing of Johnnie Mae Napoleon a beloved member of the community, who left this world on December 23, 2023. Johnnie Mae was born on January 31, 1932, in Rockwall, Texas.

Johnnie Mae will always be remembered for her culinary prowess and generous heart. She had a unique talent for cooking and delighted countless friends and family members with her delicious meals. She believed that food brought people together and her generosity knew no bounds. Whether it was preparing a large feast for holiday celebrations or simply bringing over a homemade pie to a neighbor in need, Johnnie Mae's warmth and skill in the kitchen left an indelible mark on all those who had the pleasure of tasting her creations.

A devout Christian, Johnnie Mae found solace and strength in her faith. She made attending church a priority whenever she was able, finding inspiration and guidance within the walls of Cedar Grove Christian Church in Rowlett, Texas. Her unwavering belief provided her with comfort throughout her life's journey.

Quick-witted and outspoken, Johnnie Mae was known for her sharp sense of humor. Her clever remarks would often leave those around her in stitches, brightening even the dullest of days.

Johnnie Mae was born into the loving embrace of Johnny and Maggie Wright. She shared a deep bond with them as they raised her alongside six sisters and four brothers. In adulthood, she found love and companionship with her husband Willie Napoleon. He was by her side through thick and thin until his passing.

In addition to her immediate family, Johnnie Mae leaves behind three adoring sisters: Doris, Dorothy, and Velma. She was a beloved aunt to a host of nieces and nephews who will carry her memory in their hearts.

Aside from her culinary skills and devotion to her family, Johnnie Mae had a passion for fishing. She found serenity by the water's edge, casting her line and waiting patiently for the thrill of a bite. Additionally, she enjoyed spending quality time with loved ones, engaging in friendly games of dominos that brought laughter and joy to all involved.

Johnnie Mae's proudest accomplishment was undoubtedly her unwavering love for her family. She showered them with care, support, and affection throughout her life. Her love served as an unbreakable bond that will continue to inspire and guide future generations.
