Opal May Fugitt, age 74, of Greenville, passed away early Saturday morning, September 8, 2018 at Spectrum Health-Butterworth Hospital from injuries received in an automobile accident.  The daughter of Clarence & Linda "Elinor" (Sisson) Rohn, she was born on April 4, 1944 in Stanton. 

Opal retired from the former Electrolux Home Products after 38 years of service.  On December 15, 1991, at the former Trinity Lutheran Church, she married Albert S. Fugitt.  She enjoyed handicrafts, ceramics and painting, trips to the casino, and finding a bargain at the dollar store, but her greatest joy was in time spent with her family.  In her youth she played women's softball and for many years she participated in league bowling.

She was preceded in death by her parents;  a son, Eric Medlar;  a daughter, Kellie Fugitt;  a sister, Lillian "Snooky" McKeown;  and four brothers, Ivan, Marvin, Eldon, and Irvin.
