Mary Lou Dunklin

March 11, 1968 — January 20, 2024

Mary Dunkin was born in Greenville, Alabama on March 11, 1968, to Bama Lee Robinson and Earnest Lee Dunkin. In the early 70's Bama moved her family to Pensacola, Florida. Mary enjoyed going to the beach and playing with her siblings. She loved being in the water although she wasn't a good swimmer. 

In the mid 80's Bama moved her family to Las Vegas, Nevada where Mary attended Fremont Middle school. In 1985 she became pregnant with her first child Demario while attending Rancho High School where she graduated in 1986. As the years went by, she had 3 more children Michael, Tashikka & Willie. Mary started her first job at the Stardust Hotel and over the years she maintained employment in the hospitality industry. 

Mary was a fashionista, she loved fashion and interior designing. Mary loved music, dancing and going to clubs and turning up. Her favorite color was Blue, and her favorite animal was a Leopard, her favorite insect was a butterfly, which she got tattooed on her shoulder with the word "FREE". 

Mary was a free spirit; she didn’t wait for anyone when it came to her happiness or those she loved. Mary could go out by herself and come out with a new friend. Her smile was so beautiful it could make any frown turn upside down. She wasn’t perfect and never tried to hide her imperfections, instead she taught us to love ourselves despite the opinions of others. Mary was the favorite auntie, the one that was bold and stylish. If it was $2.00 or $200.00, if she liked it, she got it and rocked the heck out of it. She was our Queen and now she is our Angel.

Mary became ill in September of 2009 and overcame many obstacles. She fought a long fight and on January 20, 2024, at 3:00 a.m. she transitioned to be with the Lord. She left her footprint on this world & will truly be missed forever and always.

Mary is preceded in death by her parents, Bama Lee Robinson and Earnest Lee Dunklin.

To cherish the memories and continue her legacy Mary leaves her children De’Mario Dunklin, Michael Dixon, Tashikka Dixon, and Willie Banks; 8 grandchildren Klarence Skeen, Naysharri Dunklin, Demario Harris, Za'kharri Banks, Josiah Harris, Damian Castellano, Omari Banks, and Erionna Banks; siblings Ruby Ann Crenshaw, Berlinda “Noodie” Dunklin, Earnest “Bo” Lee Dunklin, Margaretta “Cookie” Dunklin, Mary Lou “Moo-Moo” Williams and Lee “Rudy” Earnest; Godchild Nue Nue along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
