Opal lived with her second husband Jim for many happy years on the Oregon Coast. She worked in both retail sales and as Office Manager at the Sea Gypsy Hotel in Lincoln City, OR. She moved to Wilsonville, OR to be closer to her family. She enjoyed time spent with her friends at her apartment building, and often could be found doing puzzles in their great room. She also enjoyed spending time with her family shopping and doing puzzles.
There will be no funeral services, but in lieu of flowers or donations, if you have the opportunity, spend time with the ones you love at the coast – her favorite place.
