Opal Alene Davis was born August 24, 1919 in Cushing, Oklahoma to Leonard A. and Faye (Robb) Frazier. On November 23, 1944 Opal married Floyd Thomas "Jack" Davis and the couple made their home in Noble County for over 55 years. Floyd preceded her in death on March 7, 2006. Opal worked at Art's Cleaners, was a homemaker and was on the Election board. She cooked at Falls Creek for many, many years, was a VBS director at the First Baptist Church where she was a member. She loved to crochet and most recently made her great grandson Keagon an afghan. Opal always wanted to keep her hands busy making quilts for all her kids and loved to read books and her kindle. Opal and Jack took many vacations with their four boys but Opal made sure the boys were in Sunday School, Church, VBS and Falls Creek. They traveled many miles to numerous lakes fishing along with the Hollingsworths. She also loved to go to Branson with the Senior Adults. Opal sewed for Vernona, making all her maternity clothes and then sewed for Steffani. She also sewed a lot for Ditch Witch putting labels on coveralls, jackets and shirts.
Carolyn and Vernona learned to make homemade ice cream from Opal and her peanut brittle, that the boys are still trying to master her recipe. Opal was known as grandma to everyone. They all thought she had a hot line to God. If there was a problem she told the kids "you need to pray about it". Opal and Jack helped start the Paradise Cove Camping Club at Lake Carl where the family trailer is still there for all the kids and grandkids to enjoy. They loved watching the kids and grandkids fish, ride the tube, ski or just take a boat ride.
