She had several jobs outside the home over the years but her most fulfilling role was that of being a mother and grandmother. Opal was a member of First Baptist Church Mena, Arkansas.

A Memorial Service will be held at First Baptist Church Mena, Arkansas, Monday, March 15th, at 2:00pm, with cremation services entrusted to Bowser Family Funeral Home in Mena, Arkansas.
