Jacqueline Canada “Jackie” Dunlap, 91, of Pine Bluff, was a friendly, active woman who never met a stranger.

She passed away Friday, May 7, 2021 at Baptist Health in North Little Rock.

Jackie was born August 17, 1929 in Searcy, daughter of Jack Harris Canada and Mary Hortense Slayton Canada.

She was reared and received her early education in Searcy, graduating from Searcy High School. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Harding University in Searcy.

After graduation, Jackie earned her medical technologist training at Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her career took her to Pine Bluff, Arkansas. She met her future husband, Martel Dunlap, through a mutual friend while working at Davis Hospital. Mrs. Dunlap also worked for the Jefferson County Health Department as a medical technologist.

She was a member of First United Methodist Church in Pine Bluff, where she taught Sunday School and worked in the Nursery, until the early 1980s.

After Mr. Dunlap passed away in 1982, Mrs. Dunlap took over the family business, Dunlap Monument Company. She owned and operated Dunlap Monument Company until her retirement in the late 1990s.
Jackie loved to stay active and be around people and loved to have people over to her house. Her family referred to her love for having company over as “Hotel Dunlap”. She enjoyed traveling, crossword puzzles, bunko, reading and playing bridge. She was active in the Pine Bluff Art League. She also enjoyed her bridge club and supper club.

Survivors include her daughter Lee Ann Boop (Frederick) of Germantown, Tennessee; son, David Dunlap (Tina) of Sherwood; and three grandchildren, Brooke Dunlap of Dallas, Texas, Sarah Boop Bills (John) of Unicoi, Tennessee and Scott Boop (Sara) of Seattle, Washington.

Graveside services will be 10:00 a.m., Saturday, June 26, 2021 at Graceland Cemetery with The Reverend Dr. Susan Matthews Arnold officiating by Ralph Robinson and Son Funeral Directors.

Memorials may be made to the Pine Bluff Art League, 211 West 3rd Avenue, Pine Bluff, AR 71601.

Deepest sympathy for the Dunlap family. I will never forget what a gracious and generous neighbor she was to us on 34th Avenue. After our father passed and I was alone cleaning out the house for sale, Mrs. Dunlap welcomed me across the street and kept my spirits up through a difficult time. A great woman.

Lee Ann and David, I am saddened by the death of Jackie. She was always such a dear friend to me. I will never forget our Saturday morning breakfasts at her house along with Martha Ann Owen and Julia Hardin. They were such fun and full of such wisdom. I always admired Jackie’s candor. You never had to wonder. She will be greatly missed and impossible to replace. Prayers for all of the family. With love, Brenda Gullett

My deepest sympathy to the family on your loss. Hazel lived right across the street from my parents on Cherry St. and worked for my Father. Jackie helped my family when we lost our parents when making decisions on the monuments. She even helped me get a monument for my fur baby. She was a lovely Southern lady. I will keep you in my prayers.

David and Lea Ann, I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I knew her through BKD and she was such a pleasure to serve.
She always had a big smile and was full of joy. She was just a delight to be around. Lifting your family up in prayers.
