Betty Martha Triplett, 68, of George Triplett Road, Blowing Rock, died Friday, Dec. 17, 2010.

Betty graduated from Blowing Rock High School in 1961. She went on to attend Appalachian State University earning a B.S. and master's degree in reading. Her devotion to and love of children enhanced her 32 years of teaching, most of them at Happy Valley Elementary School in Caldwell County. She was a lifetime member of Perkinsville Baptist Church where for many of those years she cared for the children in the nursery. Her infectious smile and quick wit will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved her.

Ms. Triplett is survived by two daughters, Dawn Nicole of Boone and Daphne Genberg and her husband, Randy, of Morganton; one granddaughter, Tiffany Nicole Pugh and her husband, Tom, of Sparks, Nev.; two sisters, Barbara Wilcox and her husband, Bob, of Blowing Rock, and Linda Horton of Wilkesboro; and a number of nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, George Monroe Triplett and Susan Winkler Triplett.

Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. today at Perkinsville Baptist Church with Pastor Harold Bennett and the Rev. Johnny Carpenter officiating. Burial will follow in Mount Lawn Memorial Park and Gardens. The family will receive friends from 1 to 3 p.m. today at the church prior to the service.
