Preceding her in death besides her parents and husband, was a son, Randall King.

Opal was a graduate of Elkins High School with the class of 1945. She had been formerly employed at the Reidbord Co., G.C. Murphyís, Grantís and the old Davis Electric Laundromat. She was also a line operator for Bata Shoe Co. until retiring in 1973.

She was a former member of Hartís United Methodist Church in Kerens, where she taught Sunday School for several years. She was also a member of the United Methodist Womenís Association, the Tygart Valley Post 3647 Veteran of Foreign Warsí Womenís Auxiliary, and the Gold Star Wives of America.
