Susan E. Mapel, 72, of Naples, FL, passed away on Sunday (November 24, 2019) at AVOW Hospice, 1095b Whippoorwill Ln, Naples, FL 34105.

She was born June 9, 1947, in Streator, IL, a daughter of Laurence P. and Betty J. McConnell. She married Ron L. Mapel on May 28, 1966, in Bloomington.

She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Ron L. Mapel, a daughter, Heather (Dallas, TX), a sister Mary (Ron) Backer, and a brother Mike McConnell (Elise Mysker).

She was preceded in death by her parents and sister in law Deb McConnell.

Susan graduated from Bloomington High School and Bloomington School of Practical Nursing. She continued her nursing career at H.C.A. Medical Center of Plano, TX and retired in 1996. Susan was a member of St. Mary’s Church in Bloomington. She loved to read, listen to country music, watch “Wheel of Fortune,” and enjoyed fishing and the outdoors. Susan’s favorite holiday was Christmas. She will be greatly missed and we’re sure she is with her parents and other friends and relatives in Heaven.

I have added a link below that is automatically configured to use as a "Refer a Friend" program.  Not only is the Class Creator site used for high school classes, but for families and any group that may benefit. If we refer someone to the site and they sign up for Class Creator, a $50 check will be sent to US!!  This is a great way to earn a little extra money and try to keep our cost down for reunions. If you know anyone that could use the service please pass along the information. To receive credit they must use the link below.
