Nashville

Opal Christine Wilkins, went to be with the Lord on April 22, 2024, in Nashville, TN. She was born on June 3, 1935, in Hickman, TN. Opal was known for her outgoing nature, her knack for striking up conversations with anyone she met, and her compassion and caring demeanor. She was a devoted Christian whose faith shone brightly through her actions and words.

Preceded in death by husband of 44 years Gene Wilkins; daughter Cheryl Hooten and several brothers and sisters.

Among her many interests was her love for flowers and plants. Shopping and browsing for jewelry brought her immense pleasure, but it was the company of people that truly filled her heart. In quieter moments, Opal could be found sewing or crocheting, pouring her creativity into every stitch. Opal also found peace in the mountains and loved traveling to Gatlinburg.
