||Opal Jane Peevler|
The radiant light of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother extinguished at home on Tuesday March, 21, 2006, only to brighten up in another place more perfect and divine. As she shines in the arms of our Lord, her gentle warmth and wit will forever linger in the souls of all that loved and knew her.
It began for Opal Jane on a bright but cold day on December 17, 1911. Being the third born of eventually eleven brothers and sisters her destiny to serve was set forth. She married Robert Peevler, the love of her life in 1936 and spent the next 63 years being the consummate homemaker cooking, cleaning and taking care of her husband and kids.
All who knew her could attest to her razor-sharp wit and unparalleled sense of humor which delighted most and eluded some. She had no special talent, never had a drivers license, no special beauty mark, wouldn’t sing, had no anicured nails to file, but what she had she flaunted with the style of a fur-lined stole, she flashed her beautiful soul.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert (Bob) Peevler. Four brothers, Edmund, Earcle, Oscar, and Donald. Three sisters, Myrtle, Ruby, and Alberta.
Survivors include her brother, Homer, two sisters, Pauline and Geneva.
Opal & Bob had three daughters, Bobbi Burnum of Nampa ID, Linda Bruns of Kalispell and Reatha Windecker of Fargo OK. She always had a special place in her heart for all her children, 7 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren. Her life had immeasurable impact and influence in the lives of many. She inspired us, encouraged us, entertained us, teased us, loved and comforted us.
Our mother and grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Over the course of the past ten years she slowly left us, while her memories of us left her, ours of her have not.
