Susan Carlon Logan 70 of Alpine, Texas, closed her eyes to her earthly home on February 17th, 2019 surrounded by her beloved friends.
Carlon was born on March 21st, 1948 in Columbus, Ohio to Samuel Richard Amspoker and Muriel Lee (Stiles) Amspoker.
A celebration of life for Carlon will be held on Friday, March 15th, 2019 at 1:00 pm at Alpine Memorial Funeral Home.
She took each day in stride, never really complaining, instead always asking what she could do for others. She fought a brave and strong battle, filled with dignity and grace to the end. A beautiful woman, inside and out, she was a friend to all, known to both two legged friends and four legged friends with her nurturing, supportive and caring way. Carlon was always authentic with people, saying what needed to be said because it was good for the relationship and for the soul, as unfinished business causes pain and having peace is essential for a healthy and joyful life.
Carlon was never one to judge or force her opinions on anyone but offered valuable and truthful advice that will truly be missed. She kept her sense of humor throughout, was loving, was real, and laid a strong foundation for her family and friends to stand on.
Her magnetic smile and brilliantly lit eyes will be missed by all who knew her, yet her spirit lives on through all who knew and loved her. Her strong will to stay was only bested be her desire to answer the call from God.
Carlon in preceded in death by her beloved parents, and her husband, Dr. Dan Logan.

One brother Richard Amspoker and wife Juli of Dallas, Texas. One granddaughter Bethany Collins, two nieces Jessica Amspoker and Ashley Segura and one nephew Stephen Amspoker all of Dallas, Texas. As well as many, many wonderful and beloved friends.

Carlon was like a sister to me and my husband. We got to know her and her son Matt when we lived in Dallas in the late 80's and early 90's and they became part of our family. The love and friendship we shared is something I will treasure for the rest of my life. We lost touch for several years but by a sweet miracle the Lord brought us back into each others life during the last months of her life. Her gentle loving nature ministered to me and brought me much joy. Her love and devotion to the Lord was ever so evident to all who knew her and she spoke with conviction and grace about her Lord and Savior. This is not goodbye my precious sister, this is see you later. Having you in my life was part of God's plan, just like that calligraphy plaque I gave you years ago. To all her family and friends my husband Mike and I extend our deepest prayers that the Lord will lift you with His peace and comfort.

I am blessed to have known Carlon as a friend. She was always willing to help anyone and especially "the least among us" We shared many meals, great conversations, laughs and tears through out the thirteen years that I knew her and Dan. I am a better person for knowing her and having her as my friend. I will cherish her memory.

I was blessed with Carlon's friendship for over 20 years. I lived in Carlon's and Dan's home for more than 5 years and we shared many meals, countless conversations, abundant laughter and a few tears. I know she is at rest and peace with her Lord and I shall always be grateful for the privilege of her love and friendship.
