Opal was the daughter of the late Byron and Lula H. VanHoose and the wife of the late Rex Helton. she is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Marda Dean Wood of Thompson station and Darla Ann Thompson and three grandchildren. Opal passed away at her residence in thompson Station, Tenn.. she was 85 years old. Her service will be Saturday, September 16th at 1:00 pm at the Jones-Preston funeral Home Chapel and officiated by Hoge Hockensmith, with burial in the Highland Memorial Park at Staffordsville, Ky.. arrangements are under the direction of the Jones-Preston funeral Home of Paintsville, Ky.. Opal was a neighbor of mine in Pompano Beach back in the 60's and 70's. She loved working out in her yard during those years and was a wonderful neighbor to many of us. She and her late husband Rex had moved there from Paintsville, Ky. because of his business. I believe that Opal had been a hairdresser at one time when they lived in Ky.. I will always remember her for her good neighborly ways and sharing of her delicious recipes too. Opal was active at First Baptist Church there and worked in the children's department in Sunday School. In her later years, she worked at the church library several days a week with the childrens program there.
