Opal was a stay at home wife and mother. She loved keeping the household in order with delicious meals on the table daily. She loved to cook and clean. Yes! I said clean. There was no mess she couldn’t conquer. Now when it came to baking she could have put any bakery out of business. People would come to her home in anticipation of her cakes and pies.
She also loved to garden, she always had a beautiful yard and most of the time a vegetable garden. She canned every year and there was always home made jam.
Her church was most important to her. She loved the Lord and had many good friends where ever she went.
She and Garlan could be spotted on many occasions with their best friends Huey and Loretta Walls. If walls could talk! (No pun intended.) We have heard story’s that would fill a book. We’re told Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred had nothing on them.
She had a good long life and now is with her beloved husband. We will all miss her but there is rejoicing in Heaven today.
