Obituary of Opal Roark

Opal Roark

Of Robinette, WV

Opal Roark, 77, of Robinette, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, leaving from Logan Regional Medical Center, after a sudden illness.

She was born October 1, 1940, in Lincoln County, a daughter of the late Hal and Flora Alma Hager Brunty.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Ervin "Tommy" Roark; and one brother, Cecil Brunty.

Opal worked for Gino's of Man from 1977 through 1986. She was a member of the Lundale Freewill Baptist Church for over 50 years. Opal was faithful in her attendance at the church she loved so much until her health began to decline. After becoming house bound, she became an avid facebook user so that she could stay in touch with all of her family and friends and was even able to make new friends. Opal never lost her sense of humor and remains an inspiration to her family who will miss her very much.

Those left to cherish her memory are one son, Michael (Elva) Roark of Robinette; one daughter, Sherrie White and partner, Trayci Allen, of Morganton, NC; four grandchildren, Misty (Nick) Ellis of South Man, Michael-Paul (Kayla) Roark of Cyclone, Robert White of Taylorsville, NC, and Jenifer (Jarrett) Killian of Ludowici, GA; five great-grandchildren, Alyssa and Abby Ellis, Chris and Jacob Roark, and Lily Grace Killian; two brothers, Edgar (Wilma) Brunty of Craigsville and Arthur (Barbara) Brunty of Lundale; two sisters, Betty Dillon of Clemens, NC and Alice Roy of Lincoln County; and many nieces and nephews along with a host of other relatives and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 12, 2018, at the Krantz-McNeely Funeral Home at Man with Rev. Bobby Adkins officiating. Burial will follow in Highland Memory Gardens at Godby.

Visitation will be held one hour prior to services.

Pall bearers will be Michael Roark, Robert White, Nick Ellis, Jarrett Killian, Tracy Milton, and Kevin Samson.
