Wallowa, Wallowa County, Oregon
Opal E. Mitchell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Mitchell, died last Friday, September 19, 1919, at the Enterprise hospital of a complication of maladies. She was taken down with Typhoid Fever while at the family home on the Imnaha, and then Appendicitis developed, and she was very ill when brought out to town. Everything that the loving care of parents and friends could suggest, or medical skill could offer, was done, but she never seemed to gain strength or to have a fighting chance. The funeral was held on Saturday, and services were conducted by Rev. Fred Coley of the Christian church.
Opal Mitchell was born near Enterprise May 5, 1902, and all her life spent in the community. The family moved to the Imnaha two years ago, but were out frequently and kept in touch with their old home. The parents and two brothers and two sisters survive the deceased. One brother, Ernest is in the Navy.
