Allisynne Dunlap, a renowned paramedic and former program director/safety director at WV Emergency Medical Services Technical Support Network, peacefully passed away on December 9, 2023, in Wheeling, West Virginia, at the age of 73.

Beloved daughter of the late Charles and Dorothy (Holbert) Dunlap, Allisynne was born on November 10, 1950, in Fairmont, West Virginia. She dedicated her life to serving others through her exceptional skills in emergency medical services. Her impact was felt far and wide, and she played an instrumental role in the growth and development of the WV EMS System in the 1990s and 2000s. Allisynne’s unwavering dedication, passion, and expertise made her a pillar in the EMS community, leaving an indelible legacy that will continue to inspire future generations.

Apart from her remarkable career achievements, Allisynne had a deep love for WVU Athletics, particularly football. She cheered for her beloved Mountaineers with unbridled enthusiasm, embracing the camaraderie and excitement that comes with being a sports enthusiast.

Allisynne is survived by her faithful friend and partner in life, Marjorie “Marge” Hayden, who stood beside her through thick and thin. She also leaves behind her daughter, Emily, and her granddaughter, Jamison. Their lives were enriched by Allisynne’s love, guidance, and support. In addition, she found immense joy in the company of her cherished friends, Katie Laird and Sherry Rockwell, as well as her beloved fur babies, Chessie, Greylynne, Kit, and Baby Nora. Greylynne, especially, was always by her side, providing comfort and companionship.

In accordance with the family’s wishes, there will be no services to commemorate Allisynne’s passing. However, the impact she had on the EMS agencies and providers in the Wheeling region and across the state of West Virginia will never be forgotten. Her dedication and commitment to saving lives will continue to echo through the halls of the EMS community, solidifying her place as a true hero.

In this time of loss, let us remember Allisynne Dunlap for her unwavering spirit, her contributions to the field of emergency medicine, and her deep love for her family and community. May she rest in eternal peace, knowing that her legacy lives on in the hearts and minds of all those she touched during her remarkable life.

So, sorry for the loss. She was my cousin. I just heard about it today. Her mother (Dorothy) was my father’s (Kenneth) older sister. She was a teen when I was a child and had many good memories at Grandma Holbert’s house.

Allisynne was iconic in the field of Emergency Response. She had many achievements. One of her most notable was her time as a “founding Flight Paramedic” in the pilot project intended to bring Air Medevac to Northern WV. Without her service and that of the other team members, this program could not have succeeded. Proud to have known and worked with you Allisynne. You made a difference for all you touched
