In Memory of Opal Koch, 1929-2010

My mom, Opal Koch, passed away Saturday, September 4, 2010 at the age of 80. Mom is the Opal in VintageOpal.

Mom had been in the hospital several times this year, and each visit was more serious. This last time was just too much. She was in the intensive care unit for 2 1/2 weeks, but wasn't able to recover.

She and dad celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary this past June. Together they have three children and four grandchildren.

She will remain in our hearts and memories forever.

The photo was taken when she was in the Navy.


  1. Dear Karen,

  2. Janice,
