Opal Ray Daniels

Opal R. Daniels, 90, of Evansville, Indiana formerly of Owensboro passed away Wednesday, December 20, 2023, at St. Vincent Hospital in Evansville. The Daviess County native was born April 27, 1933, to the late Onnie J. Smeathers and Nell Winkler Smeathers. Opal grew up in Owensboro and moved to Evansville in 1949 where she met her future husband from Illinois. She worked at Shane’s Manufacturing from which she retired. Opal purchased the Windmill Flea Market in Owensboro and managed it for over forty years. She was a sweet and fun person with a wicked sense of humor but also had a strong will and never a push-over. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren enjoyed being around her and loved to hear her stories.   

In addition to her parents, Opal also was preceded in death by her son, Lindy Keith Daniels in 2019 and her siblings, Thurman Smeathers, Kenneth Smeathers, Jewell Hughart and Ruby Pritchard.

Those left to cherish her memory include her son, Marvin Daniels and his wife Karen of Evansville; daughter in law, Debbie Daniels; four granddaughters and their spouses; nine great grandchildren all of Evansville; numerous nieces and nephews.   

A memorial service for Opal Daniels will be 2:00 pm Wednesday, December 27 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory with visitation from noon until the time of the service. Burial will be in Owensboro Memorial Gardens.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place Memphis, TN 38105.
