Gladys Marie Opie

May 31, 1920 - August 27, 2017

Gladys Marie Opie, loving mother, and wife of our beloved father, William Doyle Opie Sr. peacefully left this life August 27, 2017 to begin the next.

Born May 31, 1920 in Fresno, California, she lived a long and fulfilling life. As well as being an outstanding homemaker, she acquired a private pilot’s license, owned and rode two horses, lived in Tokyo with the family, and traveled the world. She loved gardening and flower arrangements, and was a gourmet cook. Her strong character, loyalty to family, and her faith in God, have made a lasting impression on this family and to those who were privileged to know her.

She is survived by her daughter, Janet Opie Thorley; her son, William Doyle Opie Jr.; six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. Rest in Peace Mom.

In lieu of flowers, kindly make all donations to the Rogue Valley Manor Health Center.
