Betty Mae Triplett

May 22, 1938 — February 20, 2024


Betty Mae Triplett, age 85, peacefully passed away in Meadowview, Virginia on Tuesday, February 20, 2024. She was born in Washington County, Virginia, on May 22, 1938 to the late Emmitt Fuller Burke and Ida Elizabeth Kinsley Burke. She was a loving individual who cherished her family dearly. Betty's eyes lit up the most when she was surrounded by her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and even great-great-grandchildren.

Fondly remembered for her adventurous spirit, Betty enjoyed taking her grandchildren on treasure hunts and leisurely walks. Simple pleasures like trips to McDonald's and Dollar Tree brought immense joy to her heart. In quieter moments, she immersed herself in reading and solving word search puzzles, finding solace and contentment in these activities.

In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Cecil Glenn Triplett; son, Gary Wayne Triplett; grandson, Brian Booher; son-in-law, Thomas Hughes; and siblings, Laura, Polly, Sara Ellen, Ann, Ginger, Buddy and Nora Lee.
