Betty Timberlake Trippett passed away peacefully at home at the age of 88 in Larchmont, N.Y., on Wednesday, April 24, 2013.

She was born in 1924 to John Edward and Nannie Boggs Timberlake in Fredericksburg.

She married author and journalist Frank Trippett in 1951 in Fredericksburg. They moved to Tallahassee, Fla., in 1955, and then to Larchmont in 1961. Mrs. Trippett was an office manager for the Westchester Council of the Arts and worked as an RN at New Rochelle Hospital.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Frank, in 1998. She leaves behind her children, John G. Trippett (Virginia), Bess T. Rathbone (Kevin), Robert L. Trippett (Laurie) and Nan T. Widdop; nine grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren, who will treasure her memory.

She touched everyone she met with her warm charm, generous soul and spiritual light.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Hospice & Palliative Care of Westchester, N.Y.; or to a local hospice.
