In addition to her parents and husband, Opal was also preceded in death by a daughter, Penny Short; one sister, Norma Lee Sebastian and one brother, James Franklin “Frankie” Wideman.
Opal had a great love for her husband and family. Mr. Morris was the love of her life and his life was her life. Where ever he went or done she was at his side. She loved the farm and her cows and milk cows. She enjoyed working the garden and canning all she could from there. Momma Opal as known by most, had a heart bigger than the moon. She was always there to give comfort and love to anyone.
A kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother and a very dear and special friend to all. She will be forever loved and remembered
