Opal Irene Money, 96, of Auburn, Nebraska was born on September 29, 1926, in Weeping Water, Nebraska to Richard C. and Minnie May (Baker) Doane.  She was raised in Mound City, Missouri and attended Mound City High School.  On October 3, 1945, Opal was united in marriage to Robert Money in Lincoln, Nebraska.  To this union two children, Carol A. and Robert “Kevin “were born.  The couple made their home and raised their family in Mound City, Missouri for many years before moving.  They moved back to Nebraska in 1957 and eventually retired in Auburn Nebraska. 

While living in Auburn, Opal was a devoted member of the Auburn Christian Church.  She enjoyed attending the services, helping with the luncheons, and getting to know all the wonderful people of Auburn.  Opal loved playing cards, especially the game of Pitch.  She enjoyed playing cards at the Senior Center and when she joined Longs Creek, enjoyed the cards and games that were played there.  Opal and Bob loved Auburn and the people there.  They said retiring to Auburn was one of the best decisions they ever made.
