Muriel R. (Lind) Dunlop, 95, of New Oxford, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at the Cross Keys Village Brethren Home Community. She was the loving wife of the late William W. Dunlop; they shared 42 wonderful years of marriage before his passing in 1993.

Born April 28, 1926, in Hackensack, N.J., she was the daughter of the late William H. and Minnie (Haase) Lind.

In her free time, Mrs. Dunlop enjoyed travelling, having visited almost every state and several countries. Her favorite travels were trips with the family, especially trips to the beach.

Mrs. Dunlop is survived by two sons, Rev. Deacon William H. Dunlop and his wife Amy of Sun Prairie, Wis., and Rev. Bishop James S. Dunlop and his wife Connie of Mechanicsburg. In addition, she is survived by five grandchildren, James A. Dunlop and wife Julie of Gettysburg, Sean P. Dunlop and wife Gaukhar Mukhatzhanova of Vienna, Austria, Jean Archer and husband Brandon of Floresville, Texas, Kelly MacConnell and husband Reed of Mechanicsburg, and William J. Dunlop and wife Betsy of South Elgin, Illinois; and eight great-grandchildren.
