Obituary for Opal Geeham

A member of Find A Grave going by the name Cardinals Fan recently posted a scan of this obituary to the memorial that I manage for Opal Graham, née Geeham. The obituary most likely appeared in the Standard-Democrat newspaper of Sikeston, Missouri, but no source or date of publication was cited with the image.

Mrs. Opal L. Graham

SIKESTON – Funeral service for Mrs. Opal Lou Graham of Sikeston will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at Nunnelee Funeral Chapel. Rev. Robert Burns and Rev. Raymond Armstrong will officiate, with burial in Dogwood Cemetery.

Friends may call at the funeral chapel after 5 p.m. today.
