The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

It is with heavy hearts that our family announces the passing of Eleanor E. (Murphy) Opolinsky, 96, of Burlington, on Aug. 22. Eleanor was born on Feb. 28, 1923, in Boston, Massachusetts, and was the daughter of the late Matthew and Helga (Svenson) Murphy.
Eleanor served honorably and proudly in the US Marine Corps during World War II. She loved animals, gardening, reading, and bowling and amused everyone with her wonderful sense of humor.
She was the beloved wife of the late Alvin I. Opolinsky, devoted mother of Elin Dolle (Carl) of Deep River, David Opolinsky of Bristol, and Amy Scheetz of Florida, and doting grandmother to grandsons Carter and Kit Scheetz. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother Matthew Murphy and her four sisters, Helga Fleming, Rose Wentworth, Evelyn McClelland, and Winifred Page.
A celebration of life with military honors will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Special Olympics, Attn: Web Gifts, 1133 19th St. NW, 12th Fl., Washington, DC 20036‐360, or a charity of your choice. Funk Funeral Home, 35 Bellevue Ave., Bristol, is in charge of arrangements. Please visit Eleanor’s memorial website at www.FunkFuneralHome.com.
