Opal was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing her—from her family
to the Walmart associates where she was employed for 43 years, to her
Seville home where she resided for five years.
Family was one of the most important things in her life. She had a tradition of
having hot cinnamon rolls every time family visited. She would share her love
of sewing with her grandkids by bringing a suitcase full of ruffled dresses any
time she visited them. Opal also shared these creations with the Walmart
store by having them displayed in the fabric department.
Her family wishes to thank the Salem Christian Church for their faithful
visitation and ministry of Opal during her stay at Seville.
