Opal “Maxine” Moppin, age 86, passed away on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.
She was born on January 31, 1934, in Hot Springs, the daughter of William “Mac” McKinley Naven and Esther Rassberry Naven. On April 10, 1950, she married E.B. “Bud” Moppin, who preceded her in death in 2007.

Maxine was a Christian in her faith and a Missionary Baptist. Mom cared for her family and her church and they meant everything to her. When we told her “we loved her” she always responded with “I love you more”. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her and loved her.
