Opal Faye Porter, 83, passed away on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 in Fort Worth.

Funeral: 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, May 22, at Wade Family Funeral Home, 4140 W. Pioneer Parkway, Arlington with Pastor James Cox officiating. Interment: Cedar Hill Memorial Park, 8301 Mansfield Hwy., Arlington, TX 76001. Visitation: 6-8 p.m. at the funeral home.

Opal was born on November 15, 1935 in Palestine, Texas to Vera Williams and Clyde Williams. She moved to Fort Worth at the age of 12 and graduated from IM Terrell. Opal worked as the Cafeteria Manager for Our Lady of Victory Catholic School in Fort Worth. She was a member of Grace Temple Seventh-day Adventist Church, Profession of Faith, and Great Saint James Baptist Church.

Opal possessed a strong faith in our Lord Jesus Christ with an unconditional love for all people. She enjoyed fishing, cooking, spending time with family, the Temptations Movie, Blue Bell Ice Cream and spoiling her fur baby, Chance. Opal lived her life believing in prayer, laughter, family and love through the good and the bad times. She rarely complained and always saw the goodness of God in all circumstances. At the end of her life, she battled her illness courageously always believing all things work together for good for those who love God.

To her children, she was Courageous, Strong and Supportive.
To her grandchildren, she was a Teacher, Forgiving, and Loving.
To her great-grandchildren, she was known at Putt-Putt who was SOO MUCH FUN!!
We love you Putt-Putt, this life will never be the same without you.
Until we meet again,
Your Family

I will miss my sweet cousin Opal dearly. We didn't get to see each other much over the past few years, but I will cherish fond memories from back in the day. One of those memories was at a family reunion years ago when Opal and a few other family members took front and center on stage and sang "We are Family". (They really did a good job singing it too ya'll). That was a fun day! Peaceful rest to our precious Opal.

My condolences to the Porter family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.
