Dare Aldridge Triplett, 96, of US Highway 321 South, Boone, N.C., passed away Saturday morning, September 5, 2020.
She was born July 22, 1924 in Watauga County, the daughter of the late McLonel Aldridge and Artie Mae Sluder Hollar. She was a retired sales clerk with Belk’s Department Store and was a member of Middle Fork Baptist Church.
Dare’s happiest times were when she was with her family. Sunday afternoon was her favorite time, as her home was the place where all were welcome. She was a true southern cook, always growing vegetables and filling the table with the most delicious food imaginable.

She is also survived by a number of nieces and nephews.
In addition to her father and mother she was preceded in death by her husband, Romey Triplett, and one sister, Geraldine Ledford.
