She and her husband Buck moved to Conroe in 1938. Over the years they successfully ran three businesses and raised their happy family. Ophelia was always a hard worker and thrived on staying busy.

Her true love were her grandchildren, who affectionately called her Memaw. Our sweet mother, Memaw and friend is dearly loved and will be greatly missed in our lives.
