Murlene Delaine Triplett, age 88, of Oak Ridge, passed away Monday, April 5, 2021 following a fall and subsequent lung collapse. Murlene is survived by her husband, Milton, her four sons: Doug (Robin), Derrick (Risa), Dale (Rhonda), and Darren (Karen), seven grandchildren, and six great grandchildren. During her life, Murlene enjoyed traveling the United States and Switzerland with her husband. The two loved flying in small airplanes and exploring new places. The couple also served as active members of the Gatlinburg Ski Patrol for eighteen years. Throughout their 64-year marriage, Murlene and Milton lived in Peoria, Illinois, Tullahoma, Knoxville, and Madison, Alabama, before finally retiring to Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Murlene will be remembered as a loving "Mimi" and a woman of fervent Christian faith. She dedicated her life to sharing the Gospel and was a congregant of Calvary Baptist Church in Oak Ridge. She passed on her Christian faith to her family, and her legacy will endure for generations. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Murlene's honor to Calvary Baptist Church. Services will be private.
