ready to share the bounty with everyone. Everyone bragged about the taste of her famous

Wilkesboro and Phyllis J. Triplett of Deep Gap; sister, Barbara Cox Melton of Happy Valley

and step-sons, David Trivette and wife, Marcella, of West Jefferson and J. C. Trivette of

Fleetwood. Twelve grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren and three great-great

grandchildren also survive.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Frank M. Triplett,

her second husband, Clemon S. Trivette; son, Ronald Triplett and an infant son and infant

daughter; three sisters, Anna Lee Miller, Vera Hendrix and Mary Lou Wellborn; and two

brothers, Don and Carson Cox and a great grandson.
