Adelle Dunlap was born in Paris, Tenn., on June 9, 1933, to the union of Earl Dunlap and Erma Lee House Dunlap. She gave her life to Christ at the age of 11 and united with the Cedar Hill Baptist Church in Cottage Grove, Tenn.
On January 28, 1950, she married James Vernell Henry and to this union one daughter was born named Daffney Alice Henry. In 1952, she moved to Murray, where she spent the majority of her life. Due to health issues, in 2008 Dunlap relocated to Austin, Texas to live with her daughter and united with the Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church.
Throughout her life, she encountered many hard challenges battling and surviving several major life-threatening illnesses. Dunlap passionately loved her family, she genuinely loved people and she was loved, respected and affectionately known as "Mother Adelle" to many.
