Opal Olive Dodrill
Opal Olive Dodrill, 94, of Spelter passed away on October 27, 2023. She was born in Buckhannon, February 27, 1929, a daughter of the late Minter Jackson and Anna Jane Carpenter Hinkle. She was preceded in death by her husband of 37 years, Gerald Owen Dodrill; her sons, Ronald and Lewis Dodrill; her brothers, Paul and Ira P.

Opal grew up on her family’s farm in Buckhannon before moving to the small town of Spelter where she lived her remaining years. She was employed at the Hazel-Atlas Glass Company for many years and attended the Assembly of God Church.
She was a very strong woman who lived her life longer than most. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, and grandmother. She never smoked or drank in her life and always loved to brag about that fact. She enjoyed cooking, baking, and sitting on her swing watching her grandchildren play. She lived her life for her family and was always there to lend a helping hand and most of all, her love. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

A graveside service will be held at 1pm, Friday at the Hampton Cemetery in Buckhannon. Condolences may be extended to the family at www.perinefunerals.com.
