Vickie was born on April 6, 1956 in Yale, Ok to Bill and Freda (Rowe) Merriman. She grew up in Yale, graduating from Yale High School in 1974. She married the love of her life George Dunlap on November 26, 1977 in Yale, Ok. They made their home in Yale where they raised their two sons Jacob and Jared. She enjoyed being able to stay home with her boys as they grew up and was very active in their activities throughout the years. Vickie was an active member of the First Baptist Church where she helped yearly with Vacation Bible School. Anytime a person would ask her about her faith, she would let them know that she was a Christian. Everyone could see Christ through the way she lived her life. Vickie cared about others and volunteered in any way possible. She was a member of Xi Delta Pi, helping with the Angel Tree and the Children's Christmas were very important to her. Vickie also enjoyed playing cards and games with her family throughout the years. She loved each of her grandchildren and cherished the time she was able to spend with them. Vickie was a woman of great faith, and it showed throughout any trial that came her way. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Vickie is survived by her husband George of the home, Jacob Dunlap and wife Brenna of Kingsland, Georgia, Jared Dunlap and wife Kali of Stillwater, mother Freda Merriman of Yale, brother Zane Merriman and wife Debra of Yale, grandchildren Keagen, Aiden, Atticus, and Amelia, sister Louise Moore of Yale and lifelong friend Barbara Hendrix.
