Services for Sue Dunlap will be Saturday, September 19, 2020, at 10:00am at the Harker Heights United Methodist Church Sue was reunited with her husband, Bob on September 15, 2020. Sue Betsy McIntyre Dunlap is survived by daughters, Jean, Julia and husband, Barnes; and son, William, and wife, Angela. Her grandchildren are, Lucy Rose Mimix and Rhett Nichols; and great-grandson, Max Robert Minnix. Sue’s sister Randee Pat Reisinger and family reside in Waco, Tx. Sue was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Robert Dunlap, and her parents, Annie Mae McGilvray and Ira Lee McIntyre. Born July 28, 1932, in Mt. Calm, Texas, and raised in Waco, Sue married the love of her life, Bob, at Camp Killen, NJ, on June 8, 1953. As a military wife, Sue followed her husband across the globe for 25 years. Each stop along the way, Sue made a welcoming home for family and friends and contributed to the community of Army families. She and Bob extended this hospitality to a family of refugees from the Viet Nam war, who lived with them in their home for 6 months. The Dunlap family made Harker Heights, TX, their home in 1972 and set about contributing their time and energy to “leaving this community a better place than they found it.” Sue was a founding and life-long member of the Harker Heights United Methodist Church, where she served in numerous positions through the years. She was also a founding member and moving force in the establishment of the Harker Heights Library. Sue and Bob also served on boards for the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and the Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce. So extensive was the contribution of Sue and Bob, the City of Harker Heights declared March 10, 2001 and the week following as “Sue and Bob Dunlap Day”. Their contributions were also recognized by their receiving the 2001 Golden Deeds Award. Sue’s contributions to the betterment of our community didn’t stop in Harker Heights. For more than 37 years, Sue was a volunteer for Metroplex Hospital/Advent Hospital. She managed the Volunteer Gift Shop, organized the first Gala and managed the spring and Christmas flower sales. Sue somehow managed to make everything more beautiful than it was before she touched it and that included lobby Christmas trees, table decorations, gift wrapping, and floral arrangements. Sue was so proud to be a native Texan and an Army wife. She was a wonderful cook who shared her gift with everyone—including all those who attended the Harker Heights Annual Easter Breakfast at the Harker Heights Methodist Church. Sue’s life was about giving, about making this a more beautiful place, about supporting her friends, about showing God’s love and grace in every action. Sue’s absence will be felt throughout our community and among all who have known her. Memorial may be given to the Harker Heights Kiwanis Club for a scholarship in Bob’s honor. Donations may be sent to Darrel Charlton, Harker Heights Kiwanis Club, PO Box 2309, Harker Heights, TX 76548.

I worked with Sue and Bob for many years in the hospital gift shop. Their love for each other was evident to all who knew them. Bob handled the paperwork and cash register while Sue performed her magic in making all things beautiful. She was so creative and inventive. If we put out new merchandise when she wasn't there, we knew not to worry about how to display it because Sue would change it for the better when she showed up. And she always did! It became a running joke among us but the truth was Sue did make things better. She was a beautiful person and I will miss her dearly.

Sue was such a special woman. Kind, soft spoken, a pleasure to be around. She was such a great example of a Christian woman. Sue helped me many times during my tenure at the hospital, always ensuring we had the right floral arrangements for the right season. She was just that type of person...loving and caring, doing what she loved to do; take care of people.

I am broken hearted that she is gone, but it warms my heart that she has been reunited with her love. She will be forever missed, both she and Bob..They were beyond words, immeasurably kind and gentle-hearted and always there when you needed them. I'll never forget her support to my family when my dad was in/out of the hospitals back in 2013 for his heart surgery/procedures. She helped me so much, maintain faith and strength. Not just by her words but by her example. This world has lost some of its brightness. But she and Bob's legacy will never be forgotten. They have touched so many lives.

Dear Dunlap Family,
I will forever remember and be encouraged by the example that Bob & Sue exhibited as a Christian couple/marriage. Sue always provided me words of wisdom and encouragement, at every encounter - we had lots of laughs also!! It is impossible to think of Sue and not think of Bob and vice versa.
You are not alone in this difficult time. May Sue’s(Bob’s) memories be a blessing.

I am honored to have known Sue and Bob through a marriage to my brother. What an extraordinary couple and lives these two lived. I am so fortunate to have met them and have their daughter, Julie, as my brother's wife. She is a living example of Sue's love, talent (for cooking, wreath-making, just about everything), and grace.
