Obituary of Opal Jones

March 5, 1932 - Carstairs, Alberta

January 11, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Opal Elvira Jones on January 11, 2022, at the age of 89 years after a brief illness with Covid.


Opal had a big heart and loved her family and friends with great abandon. Always ready with a kind word or helping hand, she offered love and support to those in need. As her name suggests, Opal was a true gem. Always smiling with a song in her heart or on her lips, she brought joy with her wherever she went. She was greatly loved and will be missed dearly by those who knew her.


“The Lord is my strength and my fortress, my refuge in time of distress.” Jeremiah 16:19


Opal will be remembered with great fondness by her son and daughter-in-law, Ken and Ruth, her daughter and son-in-law, Sharon and Bert; her grandchildren Chris (Lindsey), Nick (Amanda), Adrian (Anshu), Heather (Gabriel); and great-grandchildren, Aiden, Cohen, Lucas, Lucy, and Rylie.


In living memory of Opal Jones, a tree will be planted in the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area by McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 Centre Street North, Calgary, AB T2E 2V6, Telephone: 403-243-8200.
