Opal Pruitt, 93, of Beebe, Arkansas went to be with the Lord Wednesday, December 6, 2017. She was born January 20, 1924 in Parkin, Arkansas to Samuel and Annie (Rains) Neal. Opal was a member of Antioch Church where she sang in the choir. She was a volunteer with CARTI/Searcy for 13 years.

She sat with friends when they were sick to give their families a rest, and provided transportation for friends when they could no longer drive.
Opal is survived by three children, Shelby (Joe T.) Belew, Larry (Glenna) Pruitt and Charlott (Phil) Stroud; six grandchildren, Kimberly (Neal) Starkey, Joe Todd (Lisa) Belew, Brandon (Jennifer) Pruitt, Mark (Ann) Pruitt, Tammy (Gregg) Vines, Terra (Jay) Ramsey; thirteen great-grandchildren, Megan, Lane, Lizzie, Eric, Shane, Christopher, Brody, Mason, Gavin, Kinley, Brinkley, Rainey and Whitt; and four great-great-grandchildren, Keegan, Landon, Brandilynn and Bronn.
