Opal Clark Moss

by Sheilah Bright


Opal Clark Moss, 101, grew up at the Sand Springs Children’s Home and published her first book at age 76. Last year, the longtime widow fell in love again and married 89-year-old Paul Bruce Moss of Tulsa. “At my age,” she says, “they’re all younger men.” The couple met at a grieving seminar hosted by a funeral home. They love to dance.
