Healey, Opal Delores, age 92, died peacefully in Dayton on Saturday, November 10, 2007.
Opal was born in Washington Courthouse, Ohio to the late Loren and Bessie Blackburn on September 9, 1915. She was the sixth of seven children; all of her brothers and sisters preceded her in death.
Opal moved to Dayton at a young age. It was there that she later met her future husband, Mark Healey. They were married in July 1935 and raised four sons together.
Opal, or “GiGi”, as her family often called her, touched all those who knew and loved her, with her gentle spirit, quick mind, compassionate nature and her love for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. She adored children and welcomed them into her home. Opal was a marvelous cook and also loved to sing. She could beat anyone at Scrabble and was a champion at crossword puzzles. She will be loved and missed by so many. Left to cherish her memory are three sons: Michael of Dayton; Daniel and wife, Patricia of Arlington, Texas; John and wife, Ruth of Cary, North Carolina; along with nine grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Opal was preceded in death by her husband, Mark; her son, Andrew; her granddaughter, Kristen and her great-granddaughter, Elizabeth.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 PM on Thursday, November 15, 2007 at TOBIAS FUNERAL HOME – BELMONT CHAPEL, 648 Watervliet Ave., Dayton. The Reverend Louis Osterhage officiating. Interment immediately following at Woodland Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 11 AM -1PM on Thursday at the funeral home.
