Opal's greatest joy was her family and working for many years as a teacher and leader in the children's department at the First Methodist Church in Barnesville. Opal was a loyal and helpful friend to all she met. Opal worked on the election board for many years. She also collected for the heart fund, cancer fund, and the Red Cross for many years.
