DYKE, Mary "Opal" Mo­ran.

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - RTDWEATHER DESK -

Cel­e­brate with us the life of our mother, Mary "Opal" Mo­ran Dyke 9/18/1922- 9/13/2017. Opal is sur­vived by her son, Norris Mo­ran Dyke (Bar­bara), her daugh­ter Mary Dale Barry, four grand­chil­dren, Brian Norris Dyke ( Mil­dred), Kris­ten Dyke Cock­rell ( Myles), Davis An­drew and Logan McKen­zie Barry; 10 great­grand­chil­dren, one great­great-grand­child and many beloved nieces, neph­ews and friends. A won­der­ful mother, grand­mother and mother- in- law, al­ways in­volved with her fam­ily. Opal was a two-time can­cer sur­vivor, and a car­ing, lov­ing lady who al­ways put oth­ers first. Pre­par­ing din­ners and bak­ing pies for any­one in need within the neigh­bor­hood or in her church was done as long as she could. Opal loved work­ing on the fam­ily farm in Hanover can­ning and freez­ing veg­eta­bles and watch­ing the cat­tle. Opal was a mem­ber of The First Bap­tist Church, Ash­land for over 57 years, and a mem­ber of the P. Buck­ley Moss So­ci­ety, Moss on the James Chap­ter. She was an avid Bridge player and re­tired from Vir­ginia Power. The Dyke fam­ily ex­tends spe­cial thanks to her Vis­it­ing An­gels, LeFi­ette and Abby, and to the Kin­dred Hospice for the care and help they gave to Granny. In lieu of flow­ers, please make a con­tri­bu­tion to your church or a char­ity of your choice. The fam­ily will re­ceive friends Satur­day 1 to 2 p. m., at Bliley’s- Sta­ples Mill, 8510 Sta­ples Mill Rd., where a Cel­e­bra­tion of Life will be held at 2 p.m.
