Opal Irene Snow Barber © Cheyenne Star Submitted by: Wanda Purcell
Opal Irene Snow was born to William Crawford and Cassie Donague Snow, January 15, 1921 at Turkey, Texas. Her father died as a result of an accident when Opal was very small and her widowed mother moved the family to Amarillo, Texas. She passed away January 2, 1994.
Opal married Woodrowe Charles Barber, August 25, 1943 in the chapel on Amarillo Air Force Base. They celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary this past August.
At the end of World War II, they moved here to farm and ranch. Except for five years ranching at DeBeque on the Western Slope of Colorado, they have lived in Roger Mills and Ellis County, Oklahoma.
She was baptized in the Arnett Baptist Church in 1955 and was a long time member of the Magnolia Baptist Church at Crawford.
She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother and four sisters.
They were members of a Travel Trailer club and spent the last 12 years enjoying their retirement, traveling with the club and going to visit the club and going to visit family and other activities.
Opal came from a big family and dearly loved her own big family. She had a way of making each of her seven kids think they were special to her. She was happiest when the house was bursting at the seams with children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins. She loved them all and would willingly sacrifice her own needs to help one of her loved ones.
She is survived by her husband, Woodrowe Charles of the home; four daughters, Beverly Ann Turley of Belen, New Mexico; Terry Lynn Fults of Cheyenne, Oklahoma; Mary Lou and Roger Habekott of Arnett, Oklahoma; Dana Renee and Greg Golden of Albuquerque, New Mexico; three sons, Tom and Lenore Barber of Crawford, Oklahoma; Jim and Karen Barber of Crawford, Oklahoma; and Blaine and Kris Barber of Petoskey, Michigan; one sister, Adaline Greathouse of Roswell, New Mexico; two brothers, Marvin Snow of Amarillo, Texas and Charles Snow of Las Vegas, Nevada; her grandchildren, Bronson and Jan Turley, Nick and wife Holly, W. C. and Lacey Habekott, Stacey and husband Arron Habekott White, Kenya and Trent Barber, Taylor Jones, Zach, Carrie Dawn, Melanie and Ti Barber, Micah, Jeremy and Sarita Barber, Christina, Mitchel and Cassie Fults and Megan Golden; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
