Obituary

Donna Faye Dunlap, 61, of Amarillo, TX joined her Heavenly father on November 25, 2022.  Funeral services are scheduled for 10:00 AM Tuesday November 29, 2022 at Cox-Rowley Funeral Home Chapel, 4180 Canyon Drive, with Chaplain Danny Logan officiating. The family will be accepting friends at the funeral home Monday, November 28, 2022 from 5:00-7:00 PM.

Donna was born on December 18, 1960 in New Iberia, Louisiana to Ronald and Methel Dendy. She was the oldest of five children. Donna attended Amarillo High School. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at West Texas A&M University. Donna had a fierce love for her family. She also enjoyed margaritas, a good glass of wine and some chips and salsa.

As a sister, daughter, and a wife she devoted herself to the care and companionship of her husband, siblings, and her mother.  Donna would create opportunities for her siblings and their mother to go on adventures to create memories of joy and laughter.  She would travel to meet her husband Mike during his work conferences for quick getaways. Whether it was to the Hawaiian Islands, Graceland, or any other place that struck their fancy, she was the travel companion that orchestrated the itinerary for her favorite people to join her.  

As a mother, she demonstrated the meaning of hard work and determination to her children Linda, Jennifer, Erin, and Benjamin.  She worked odd jobs to provide for her children and put herself through nursing school. With grit and resolve, she worked hard to achieve a better life for her children than she had, and continued to push her children to achieve more as well.  

Donna was an avid traveler and scuba diver who had a zeal for life and an endless devotion to the people she loved.  Donna had visited all 50 states in the United States and had been to over 27 countries throughout the world. She demonstrated her fierce personality through diving in open water among sharks, barracudas, and other creatures of the deep that would cause most people to shrink away; if the water was clear and blue, she was going in to explore.  

She left her mark worldwide, but most importantly on the ones she loved and cared for.  

She is preceded by her parents; and her brother Doug.  

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Michial Dunlap; her three daughters, Linda Langford; Jennifer Towles and husband David; Erin Scivally and husband Reid; her son, Benjamin Langford and wife Amber; her nine grandchildren, Kennedy, Kirsten, Michael, Gabriel, Samuel, Sadie, Camdyn, Emmalee and Brynlee; her brother Jack Dendy and wife Cathye; her two sisters, Ann Biemer and husband Scott; and Kelly Dendy. Survivors also include a host of many nieces, nephews and other family members.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to the Gleason Foundation whose dedication gives a voice and hope to those diagnosed with ALS.  https://teamgleason.org/donate/
