Obituary for Lura Triplett
Memorial Park Funeral Home and Cemetery
Memphis, TN


Lura Johnson Triplett, 85, of Memphis, passed away on Friday, November 29. She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Earl Harrison Triplett, Sr.

Mrs. Triplett, the daughter of the late Otis and Lura Johnson, grew up in Glen Allan, Mississippi. She attended the University of Mississippi and Mississippi State University, where she majored in music and was a member of Chi Omega sorority. She also studied at the University of Memphis.

Mrs. Triplett served as President of the Woman's Exchange of Memphis and was a member of the Hermitage Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She also was a longtime member of the Josephine Circle, the Kennedy Book Club, and Christ Methodist Church, where she volunteered her time and shared her caring spirit at the Counseling Center. She devoted her life to her five children and provided loving care to family members in need, including her husband, Earl, during his long struggle with Parkinson's Disease.

Survivors include her children, Lura Nell Mitchell (Malcolm) of Alexandria, VA; Earl Triplett, Jr. (Ann) of Memphis; Melanie Jones (Albert) of Richmond, VA; Rebecca Kranc (Dave) of St. Simons Island, GA; Ed Triplett (Julia) of Nashville TN; and ten grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Otis Johnson, Jr. (Sue) of Jackson, Mississippi.

The family would like to thank Evelyn Giles, Debra Macklin, and Linder Taylor for their devotion to our family and to our parents during their illnesses. We would also like to thank the staff at Baptist Trinity Hospice House in Collierville and our Mother's many doctors for their kindness and care.

Visitation will be on Saturday, November 30, at 2:30 pm at Memorial Park with a service immediately following at 3:30 pm.

Memorials may be sent to Baptist Trinity Hospice House in Collierville, TN, Christ Community Health Services in Memphis, TN, or Historic Greenfield Cemetery in Glen Allan, MS.
