Opal Benfield Street, 91, of Elizabethton, left her earthly home on June 27, 2018, to join her heavenly family and her savior, Jesus Christ, following an extended illness. Opal was born in Carter County to the late Amos and Mary Benfield. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Kyle Street, and her sisters, Margaret, Evelyn, Wilma and Jean.
For many years, she and her husband owned a general store in Limestone Cove. Street’s Store became a community meeting place where friendships were made and remain today. Her kindness and generosity will be fondly remembered by her nieces and nephews, to whom she provided love, laughter and support. A true “fairy godmother!” She was a life-long member of Valley Forge Christian Church, where she sang in the choir and taught Sunday school.
